Just a note to remind everyone that we will be meeting at the Stanton Town Hall on County Road T at 10:00am this Saturday, February 22  for a sewing day.  There will be demonstrations on borders and bindings, and scallop borders. 

If you are wanting to work on a small fabric piece with mitered corners, please bring the following:  a piece of fabric at least 18 inches square or a fat quarter, and enough fabric to sew three pieces of fabric together for borders. Also rulers thread, marker and sewing machine.  Jean Krumm will be teaching the demo on Mitered Corners. 

Betty Schmit will be bringing 6 different block patterns  (the fabric is already cut for piecing!!!!!)  Everyone is invited to help make a block or two for our next caring quilts.
