 This past Saturday saw MMQG members gather for our November Sew-In Day in Dartmouth.  The machines were humming along, fabric envy was happening, consultations were sought, laughter and gabbing and lots of quiltmaking was going on.  Here are a few shots of the action!

Don't you just love Valerie's cute little ironing table!

Barb  sewed and sewed and sewed
and...made an awesome quilt top

Dominique brought a tub o' fabric to play with

Handstitching binding was on Linda's to-do list for the day

Val started with this

and....ended with a wonderful zippered for pouch for a someone special gift

Beth started with a jelly roll
and...went home with her first quilt top

Anja was very productive and worked on a few projects during the day

Susan was whipping out the cute little pouches. 

Everyone admired Anja's awessome new bag...a  giveaway win. 

 Oh yes we do! You should come sometime!
