At the 2019 Annual Meeting and Social

At Quilting Delights on Saturday, December 17, 2019 our Annual Meeting celebrated the biggest turnout to date. Besides sharing treats, an overloaded freecycle table, electing new officers and announcing the winners of the President’s Challenge, it is always inspiring to see what members and the Neighborhood and Special Interest Groups have done throughout the year.

The Weekend Group worked with leather, held a mystery fabric event and reported that the Jalie Helene jacket was a popular pattern. The Machine Embroidery Group showed off a lovely scarf-hood made by Sheila Hanson. Quilting East Group had a color theory program, did some crumb quilting, and took some field trips.
