August 2023 Meeting

 As Summer draws to a close the NCN members are gearing up for the fall with preparations for our October Quilt Show "Autumn Splendor" - October 21 - 22, 2023 at the Don Umerley Civic Center in Rocky River.  Committee chairs are collecting donations for raffle quilt baskets, vendors are being booked, and quilts are entered for our viewing pleasure.  Bravo to all the members who are working are for this wonderful quilt show in October!

Below are a few of the show and tell sewn items shared by members at the August meeting.

Our featured speaker was Cindy Oravecz of Quilters Fancy.  Cindy presented an engaging talk and trunk show of her many creations.   Cindy shared with us the wonderful world of ribbons, threads, buttons, hand stitches and so many more techniques for creating fun and exciting quilts.
