We were assigned a buddy guild in our province at the last Gathering of the Guilds conference this past spring. The Cotton Mill Guild was assigned the Miramichi Guild as a buddy guild. No rules.. We could do as we please. It was late in our guild year when we planned a day in the fall that we would invite them to come sew with us for a day. Well today was the day. We had 16 of their members come by the carloads this morning. We hosted them by giving them lots of yummy food, and providing a kit of fabric to each of them for a mystery project. The class was taught by one of our guild members Jennifer S.
The day is over, and it was a very satisfying day. I sat with a quilter named Jean from Miramichi. Everyone called her Mom! She was funny. Had a few "Worty Dirds", as she says.... tee hee.. Humor aside, she was an expert sewer and a nice table mate.
The project everyone did is called the Style File. It was a great small project everyone learned a new zipper installation technique. Come to think of it, I think everyone finished their projects. The style file is a zipped portfolio that holds a letter sized file folder in the zipped part, and it will hold regular sized paper in the front pocket. This a beautiful set of brown colors. The camera doesn't do it justice. Isn't it nice?
Within a day or so, there will be pictures on the Cotton Mill Blog... Come over to have a look. See you there,
And... More Quilts!
