February 2008 Newsletter

Ohmigosh! We’re meeting this Thursday! What a month it’s been. Bring your show and tell and news and stories and we’re sure to have lots of conversation before we watch “Duct Tape Mummies!”

Recap of January Meeting (January 31, 2008)
Show and tell was fabulous, as always! Joann made a skirt from her hand dyes from two summers ago. The fabric was beautiful and the results are stunning. We had two new members join us (see the insert for this year’s membership list). We voted to officially change our name to Conversations in Cloth, both because that’s what Michele named the blog by accident, and because it’s a really cool acronym. Now we just have to decide whether to pronounce CinC as “sink” or “kink”!

Finally, we foiled! Using BoNash powder with the foil was a favorite technique for the group. We also determined that you could foil onto ribbon, and we loved the results. The best online source for foil and adhesive is probably, and supplies are also available from
