Open Sewing at the Lake House and in Corning -- Wednesday, Sep 18th

Lake House Open Sewing -- MLQG members gather for open sewing sessions at the lake house (near Hills Creek Lake) on Wednesdays from 10:00 until ?. All guild members of all ability levels and interests are welcome to attend on any Wednesday and may work on any stitching projects that they like, hand or machine, even knitting/crocheting/embroidery. The only exception is the fourth Wednesday of the month, which will continue to be a charity sewing day.

Once in a while, there may be discussion topics on some Wednesdays (modern quilting, applique, etc), but those attending are not obligated to work on quilts that are related to the topic. The purpose of these get-togethers is to spend time with other fiber fanatics and to learn from each other, no matter what we're all working on. Bring your projects, machine, and lunch. Stay for an hour or stay all day.

The next open sewing session at the lake house will be on Wednesday, September 18th. If you need directions to the lake house or want more info, please contact Anya T., Dori S., or Susan McC. (check your roster for contact info or comment on this blog post).

And if you can't come during the day to the lake house, consider going to Happy Hour Sewing in Corning --

Corning Open Sewing -- Bring whatever you’d like to work on – cutting, sewing, embroidery, cross stitch or your knitting! An iron & ironing board are available at the church hall. We like food if you want to bring some or we can order out. Time is from 5:15 – 8:45 pm on Sep 18th at the Emanuel Lutheran Church, West William St. Corning, NY. Contact Carrie S. (check your roster for contact info) for more details.

The Corning open sewing group has decided to work on some charity projects on the first Wednesday of even-numbered months (working on charity projects is not obligatory that day, just suggested). The upcoming dates are Oct 2nd and Dec 4th. A couple of ideas for charity projects include little girl dresses for Africa (the church will be sending a shipment in Dec), and/or placemats for Meals on Wheels (any style/any pattern, to be delivered with holiday meals in Dec).

Reminder about soup sales.The ladies group at the church – WELCA – are having a soup sale and a rummage sale at the end of this month. Tomorrow night you can order soup if you like and then it will be available for you to pick up on Oct. 2nd. Phyllis will have the order forms and it will be much appreciated if you pay when you order – it just makes the pick-up that much easier.
