June Happenings

North Coast Needlers June meeting brought many wonderful show and tells of lovely quilts, table runners and bags, Oh My!

Then our own NCN member Sue Knight gave a lovely talk about her "Wearable Art" and trunk show of her upcycled vests, jackets and clothing items.  Such imagination and fun was displayed in all of Sue's garments, whether Sue started from scratch or embellished ready to wear garments.
