Brown Bag Project

In September several members participated in the Brown Bag Exchange.
They were to bring a bag with fat quarters and exchange with another member. 
They had two months to make something from the fat quarters in the bag
and this month was the reveal! 
All the projects turned out beautiful and all of the recipients
were very pleased.

November 2014 Monthly Meeting

Becky Martin was the winner of the pink string blocks! OK, maybe

The penny auction winners! 
Doris Rice won the fabric Christmas ornaments
