Local milliner Lee St. Marie gave a tip top presentation for the December holiday potluck. Lee's presentation also included a fun trunk show of hats, headbands and fascinators using North Coast Needler models. Lee designs and creates many lovely hats, and owns a shop in Rocky River on Old Detroit Rd - "Studio St. Marie." Hat's off to you all and a fun evening for all who attended!

Upcoming Events:January - NCN meeting - 2cd Tuesday (January 8th 2019)
We will be having a Sew-In after the business meeting in January. The project will make a bed sized quilt which will then be raffled to raise money. I need people to sign up for specific tasks for that evening as follows: Sewers: We will need eight sewers to do the piecing that evening. With luck, we can finish (or near finish) the quilt top in our regular meeting time. Iron Stations: We will need approximately six pressing stations to keep ahead of the sewers. Specifically, I need people to bring either irons and ironing boards or irons and ironing pads that can be used on a table top. Cutting Stations: We will need approximately four cutting stations to trim flying geese units as they are sewn. For each these we will need a cutting mat, rotary cutter and ruler (at least 6 x 12). (The units for piecing will be pre-cut. Only the flying geese will need cutting that evening.) The Iron and Cutting Stations can be manned on a rotating basis or by the person bringing the supplies, as needed. If you are planning on being at the January meeting and would like to sign up for one of these positions, please contact Martha Hamilton via email and let me know your preference. This should be a fun evening.
