Today was the last meeting in our 2014 Sisters of the Cloth class series.
|This month, we featured the Tumbling Block pattern. As members worked on their blocks, we went around the room for show and share. LaRue showed these sewing treasures found in a vintage basket that has been passed down through generations.|
We invited members to bring vintage toys. Margaret brought her childhood doll which will be 82 years old this year!
|Chris shared these favorite story books from her childhood.|
|Mary shared this vintage alphabet toy. The flip side has numbers.|
|Carol shared this quilt - found and finished.|
|Janet brought several cloth bags that have been saved and handed down from her relatives.|
|This is not an old quilt but still fun to see. Sue brought her Mystery Quilt top to show us.|
|Michael Zahs, from Humanities Iowa Speakers Bureau, entertained with a program about cloth sacks and quilts made from feed sacks. Very interesting!|
|In keeping with the Tumbling Block theme, we did demos of this Tumbling Block Hot Pad during our refreshment break. Ask for a demo when you are in. Cute gift plus can also show you how to make a stack of coasters to match.|
