Embroidery Block of the Month 2011


P1290006We had a super time this morning in Racine at the kick-off of Embroidery Block of the Month!

P1290007Our project this year is called Celebrations.  It’s a seasonal block each month that can be displayed individually, as an of-the-month wall hanging, or put into a stunning quilt at the end of our 12 months.

P1290009Marcia had lots to show – she shared great tips and she announced (promised Smile) that she would make all the mistakes so you don’t have to!

P1290015Here she is demonstrating the invaluable Hoop Master.

P1290010A great time was had by all!  The proof is in the bright, smiling faces!  Still time to join our wonderful group!  Call Racine at 507-378-7677 or Decorah at 563-382-4646 to get registered!

VIP in Decorah–January 21 & 22, 2011

We had a great turnout both days, despite the frigid temperatures!  Thanks, everyone for coming!!!  If you weren’t able to attend, here’s a bit of what went on…

IMG_3758Connie revealed the next step in the Free Stash Mystery Quilt!

IMG_3760Marcia got a little crazy…can you imagine?

IMG_3761Deanne brought a stunning project that combined fabric weaving and 3-D – very cool!


IMG_3763Deanne also brought these adorable dresses that her guild is making for children in Africa.

IMG_3764Lookie here!  Gail and her speedy needle got one of our all-inclusive, pre-cut wool kits completed.  Now when I say all-inclusive, I mean it…right down to the needle and the scissors!  =)  Great for your purse, because you never can tell when you’ll get a moment to stitch, right?

Here are the slides from the big show:

Please plan to attend next month – February 18 & 19, both days at 9:30 AM.  It’s so much fun – treat yourself!
