October
If you are wishing for sunshine and colors like I am, you’ll be in for a big treat at our October meeting and workshop with Eleanor Levie. Elly will bring us some bright and whimsical ways to personalize your quilting. Elly’s trunk show features lots and lots of quilts and quilted accessories, showcasing a dozen different and unconventional ways to inject originality and unique style into YOUR quilting. From designing new blocks, to adding unusual materials, techniques, and embellishments, to personalizing gifts with names or monograms, you'll discover how to put your own personal stamp on everything you do.

The Workshop is Nine Patch Gone Wild. If you haven’t signed up but are still considering it contact Janet as soon as possible so we can get a final count for this fun workshop.

Remember our Meeting on Oct 17 as well as the Workshop on Thursday Oct 18 will be at the Dutchess County Cornell Cooperative Extension Farm and Home Center at 2715 Rt 44, Millbrook, NY.
