It's time for another series of classes we call Sisters of the Cloth. We meet at the Adel Library on Saturday mornings from 10 am to noon on July 15, September 16 and November 18.
Half of our morning is spent talking about quilting, show and share of our quilts and refreshments.
The other half features the speaker of the day. At our July gathering, our speaker is Kathy Wilson, a professional historian and educator. The title of her program is Straight-laced Girls, Uptight Ladies and Loose Women. I am told Kathy is both entertaining and informative and she comes to us highly recommended.
Students choose to sit and just listen and enjoy or participate in Show and Tell or pick up the hand piecing supplies we provide a stitch a little.
This has been series of classes that we have held for many years, always very popular. If you would like to join us, just give us a call - 515-993-1170. Fee for all three classes is just $50 and includes program hand outs, patterns, sewing supplies, prize drawing and refreshments!

These are the blocks from our "Just One Block" challenge. I had trouble getting all the blocks in one picture so, hopefully between these two pics, you can see them all.
The reasoning behind this challenge is that, if everyone makes "just one block", we can easily assemble a quilt for the Dallas County Fair auction. We did it, right? Aren't these beautiful?
Customers voted for their favorite blocks during our recent exhibit. Check back Thursday to see the top three winners.
