Piecemaker's Meeting 7-17-2012

On a hot July evening, we gathered for a fun and lively time. I don't remember the count but I would say we had between 55-60 members. And we added 2 new members that night also. The garage sale was a big successs and we made almost $750, the purse strings were open for sure. We didn't have a speaker for this meeting as we were supposed to bring a vintage quilt to show for our program. We first had our regular show and tell and then the "vintage" quilts were shown. Wow, we had some really pretty ones!! The slideshow below will show our prize quilts. The first 6 are our current show and tell and then the vintage quilt show begins.

We heard lots of memorable stories about these vintage quilts and they were so interesting..Most of them had no labels so we learned how important labels are to our quilts. Let's all make a promise to ourselves to label our quilts and tell our stories. It really is important!!
