This new space is going to work out so great for us. I loved seeing so many faces, and hearing so many machines humming. I loved that people can pop in and out with whatever works for their schedules. I loved the extended sharing and friendship we can have in this bright, big room.
Thanks to everyone who showed a preview of their Quick Curve Ruler work this morning. I look forward to seeing some finished pieces in coming months - I saw lots of great color combinations being started today.
Elisa used Kaffe with the Deco Tumbler pattern.
She also started the new Mod Owls pattern.
Ella made a beautifully quilted mini using Chic Picnic.
Bethia used Metro Rings and loves how jelly roll friendly it is.
And Jenn Barclay is bravely cutting into her CF collection to make a Chic Country quilt.
Next month is our official Grand Opening party in our new space. We will not have open sew time in August, because we will be too busy with our introductions and eating. Please come ready to meet new people, and consider bringing a plate of something to share with everyone for our potluck. Neither is required, but my favorite is chocolate cupcakes in case anyone was wondering. We will roll out our new group project and schedule for the coming months, our new name tags, and have sign ups for some fun exchanges we've got planned. There will also be a sewing TV tray demo, for those who haven't had their sewing revolutionized yet by having one nearby for every project. If you haven't paid electronically, you can also pay annual dues in person on this day.
