Open Sewing at the Lake House and Happy Hour Sewing in Corning -- Wednesday, November 6th

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 (charity sewing is on hiatus until January 2014).

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. Just be warned that if only a couple of people show up in the morning, we may close up shop by noon (but that doesn't happen too often).

The next open sewing session at the lake house will be on Wednesday, November 6th. 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 at the Emanuel Lutheran Church, West William St. Corning, NY. Contact Carrie S. (check your roster for contact info) for more details. The next date for Happy Hour Sewing is Wednesday, November 6th.

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 date for happy hour charity sewing is 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).
