The Much Anticipated STEAL GAME

Steal Game for November Meeting:

  1. Make a mug rug - smaller than a placemat, bigger than a coaster.  
  2. Pair it with a mug, tea cup,or ...?
  3. Wrap the finished mug rug and cup together however you like and bring to the November meeting where we will play the steal game.  It's always fun,
go here for post
You can make it any way you want.  Think of it as a tiny quilt.  Want to see more?  Do a google image search and put in mug rug in the search box and you'll get hundreds of ideas.  Look forward to seeing yours.

Or call Carol H or Sharon D - #s in the directory.

We had great fun at the last Sew Day.  Angie and Ken had  mini workshops. Angie showed a very simple and fast QAYG and Ken showed how to make buckets.

On The Bias

A few words from Becky Goldsmith:

Hello everyone,
I just posted a new video about How To Fold A Quilt. I've shown guilds and classes how I fold quilts for many years, but only today managed to get a video made. Click here to see it. The key is to always fold your quilts on the bias. Always. Never fold your quilts on the straight of grain because that can cause fibers to break and over time will cause creases to be permanent.
I have a very few holiday items on sale... the bat needle nannies, the black cat pin cushion kits, and the Christmas fairy pin cushion kits. I have fewer than 5 of each so if you want one, order soon. Click here. Each thing is in the right hand column... scroll down.
I realized today that the link for the new Christmas Delivery pattern was not on the website. You know, there are days when I'd like to smack myself upside the head :-). Anyway, I did put together a page with all of our Christmas patterns. Click here.
I'm going to work soon on a Christmas ornament and I'll have a free pattern for it. I think it will be an elf! Once I have it up, I'll let you all know.
And, I almost hate to mention it because I don't have many in stock, but I've recently discovered the hexagon papers from Busyfingers by Sue Daley. They are very nice indeed! The paper is slick and works really well with the Sewline Glue Pen. Click here for more info. My supplier is out of stock so we are all waiting on back orders. If you order, please be patient. Also, I'll be adding more of the Busyfingers products as I get them in.
Until then, happy stitching,

What with Governor Brown signing the ban the plastic bag law, those bags are disappearing from grocery stores first.  Use up your stash - make your own.  Here's one site to find a pattern.

And have an old cutting mat you don't know what to use for?  Cut it up for the bottom of your bag.  You'll have to sand the edges.

Saturday, November 22nd, our next sewing day at Goeske, we will be presenting the Quilts of Valor to 18 recipients. Presentation will be at 3 PM.  The problem is we only have 14 quilts to give.  Please bring to the October meeting any QOV quilts you have, even if not finished, so we can have one for each of the veterans.  All are invited to the presentation.  Please RSVP to Christy F so that we can plan for the number coming.
