We started off with introductions because there were new faces! Yes, we are now 3 members more.
Anja won the prize for wearing a name-tag. A lovely fat quarter pack. Have fun with it Anja. Maybe you could make a lovely zippered pouch!
BTW, next month's challenge is....Bring a handmade zippered pouch of any type and receive one to take home. If you decide to participate, place it in a bag of some sort to keep it a secret. Check out our Pinterest board for some inspiration. Feel free to pin along too.
6 1/2" Blocks made by our members, that will be part of our new banner, were collected and oohed and ahhed over.
