July 2011 Get together

Lively chat and laughter at this months meeting discussing a recent post to the main list regarding 'Pintastics' with Jan Rhoades producing her lovely beaded and embroidered version of a "Pintastic" which she proudly announced (tongue in cheek) could take 2 different pin sizes and demonstrated its adaptiveness! Next was Shaaryn's multi-storage 'pintastic' which holds all size pins, and scissors, even a tape measure! Not to be outdone, the group erruped with laughter when Robyn showed us her 'needle-tastic'. We enjoyed some creative show and tell as each of us worked on our hand stitching and ate the delicious Date Scones Shaaryn shared with us. Our August meeting will include a tutorial by Karen from The Quilters Store on colouring her quilt labels. Hope to see you then.
