June 2023 meeting

June marks the beginning of summer and the joys of gardening along with a bit of sewing, Oh the joys of sunshine, warm weather, flowers and time to play with fabric.

We always have a lovely display of projects that our members share.  Thank you to all for sharing!

We were joined by a splendid speaker and presenter, Rachel Derstine.  Rachel had a presentation of her quilts that use the beauty of the hand dyed fabrics to create simple and eye catching masterpieces. 

The Quilt Raffle Committee presented the complete quilt that the will be raffled off this fall, Lavender Fields! Many hours and dedication went into the piecing and quilting of this quilt.  Buy your raffle tickets today!
