Upcoming Sewing Saturdays:
July 23 at Pat's
Aug 20 - Charity Sewing Day hosted at Deb's studio
Sept 24 - no host location set
New Business: Deb is moving in to her studio at Lowe Mill on Aug 1. She has offered to host Sewing Saturdays for the time being. She also offered to host the meetings however they would need to be moved to Thursday evenings. Due to meetings on Thursday evenings of other local guilds, it would need to be either the 1st or 4th Thursday. The 4th Thursday would have more holiday conflicts than the 1st. It was suggested that we have a charity sewing day on Aug 20 so that members could come and visit the studio to see if they would like to move the meetings to her studio. We will vote to move the meetings from Joann to her studio at a later date.
Show and Tell:
Mary showed off a quilt top she made for the Orlando Modern quilt guild. She also showed a finished quilt for a baby boy.
Sherry showed off her heart block that she made for Orlando and a block she made for Glenn's rotating fabric box.
Deb showed off a block she made for Rachel's rotating fabric box
Sophie showed off her charity blocks and joined the rotating fabric box!
Tip of the Month:
Deb shared that when you are making quick corners for blocks, before you trim them, sew 1/2" away from the original sewing line. When you cut the corner off, you have a half square triangle unit already made. You can collect them to use in the future. Amanda shared that a blogger she follows uses the small 1" hst units for making pin cushions.
