We discussed having some speakers come to our guild next year. Sherri Lynn Wood has expressed an interest in teaching a class for our guild in November 2014!
Member Spotlight - Emily was spotlit! Next month we will learn about Amy S!
Skill School - Ginia taught everyone how to create nice, sharp 45degree corners on your quilt binding, and then did an awesome lesson on mitered corners for quilt piecing! It was a very clever lesson, making Y seams seem a lot more approachable! Next month Brenda will do a presentation on upcoming fabric releases and trends.
Swap: A yankee swap for Favorite Tools was conducted! Next month we will do a mug rug swap. More details at the top of the post.
