Sewing with our Sister Guild in the Miramichi

Yesterday was a fun sewing day in the Miramichi.     The Cotton Mill Guild is a sister guild to the Miramichi Guild and they hosted a fun sewing day and planned a full day of fun things.

They provided each of our 16 visiting members with a kit of fabrics, and we were led step by step to make this mystery project.  It's an original design by one of the members of the Miramichi guild.    And the mystery was this pad of pockets that sits under your sewing machine.  I put several  pairs of scissors and other notions in it.  It's perfect, and I just love the fabrics.  

We were served a sit down lunch of salad, Chicken-a-la-King, followed by a pound cake with lovely warm sauce on it.  It was all so delicious.   At our place setting, was a little Welcome letter.  It included a copy of this Red Brolly pattern to make a mug rug.  It's just darling, and I'll definitely make one of these..You can see the color picture and get the free pattern here.

 The Miramichi Guild also had a wonderful Show and Tell for us.  Some of their members are so innovative.  Along with lots of workshop samples, they showed some original designs for quilt transporting wraps.  Very clever.

And as the day came to an end, each one of us visitors were gifted a nice roll of coordinating fabrics in a jam jar.  It had a poof pin cushion on the top.  So cute.   Here's mine.

Many thanks Miramichi Quilt Guild.   It was a fabulous day, wonderful food and I love the project that we made on our visit.
