At September's brief meeting a couple of the items discussed were next year's quilt show and the current opportunity quilt that will be raffled off at the Rocky River Harvest Holiday Show this November. After the meeting many members shared their wonderous projects filled with color, embroidery, artistry and awe. Thank you all for sharing! Below are just a few of the many inspiring projects presented.
Deb took us through her process from idea, to drawing, adding color stories, to fabric and then to the stores for customers to purchase and turn into wonderful projects and quilts.. It was a fascinating journey with her joy of art and her profession. Deb has accompanied by her partner in crime, husband Scott.

NCN met for our quick general meeting reviewing the happening over the last month.
Community Service displayed their many fabulous quilts that will be donated and then members showed their newest sewing creations.
After a brief break we enjoyed a lovely presentation by Emilie Collens Illson of Button Down Designs. Emilie displays many trays of buttons made from a variety of materials along with other items of like materials. The audience was able to touch and examine the beautiful collectable buttons and learn the history of their making. It was a delightful and fun evening enjoyed by all who attended.

June is the perfect month to look at the fruits of our passions and start enjoying the weather, our family and ice cream. After our business meeting and show and tell, the members of North Coast Needlers enjoyed ICE CREAM with homemade fudge sauce and cupcakes! Then we played a fun game with fat quarters of fabric, winner takes all. It was a delight to laugh and share time with our fellow members.
First up - show and tell!
Finished up with snacks and fun!
