September Meeting 2023

Meeting September 28, 2023 at 6 PM

Old Worthington Library

13 people attended.

The meeting was opened by Leigh asking each person to say their name and asked the question if you have been to a quilting retreat, what do you feel you can’t leave home without? Answers ranged from lots of wound bobbins, patterns cut and ready to sew, extra fabric (in case), cutting utensils, thread sewing machine and wine!! One person suggested to bring more than you can finish. Also, bring some smaller projects to fill extra time.

We were also asked to bring something we use for quilting that is not a quilting tool. Members brought chopsticks, forks to help make zippers, stretchy hair ties, boxes and storage container we reuse, clear bandage tape to help keep rulers from sliding, weights to hold patterns and to hold rulers when cutting – the ideas were endless!

All Ohio Shop Hop – Several members visited some shops, but Carol, visited all 60 shops!! Two of her favorites were Polka Dot Pin Cushion in northern Ohio and Stitches in Cincinnati.
