October/November 2006

It’s been awhile! September’s newsletter was a phone call (live from Colorado!), and October and November are combined since there was no October meeting. Be sure to read below about the November meeting…You need to call Marilyn at XXX-XXXX to ensure she has a kit ready for you!

Recap of September Meeting (September 28, 2006)
A very, very small group gathered mostly for chatting…perhaps we should reschedule our couching party! Marilyn’s scarf from the August meeting won second place at the Oshkosh Quilt Show in the wearables category!

There was no October meeting; but Theresa, Joanne, Marilyn, and Katy enjoyed our trip to Marshfield to learn from Ellen Anne Eddy. Connie XXXXX and Theresa’s daughter Susan joined us too. Thanks to Theresa for organizing the trip; let’s bring some show and tell to the November meeting!

Reminders and Announcements

Our buddy, the night custodian at the library, has had a serious accident and will not be working his evening shift the rest of 2006. Therefore, we must wrap up our meetings and vacate the library by 8:45.

November Meeting (Thursday November 30, 2006) at the Menasha Public Library
Marilyn will teach us to make fun and easy pins from silk cocoons. PLEASE CALL MARILYN AT XXX-XXXX TO RESERVE A KIT! Kits will be $5. Additionally, please bring an iron, a Teflon sheet, and Angelina fiber if you have them. We will have irons to share, and Angelina will be in your kit if you don’t have any on hand.

Plan on show and tell galore! We haven’t gotten together in a while!

Upcoming Events
