Montgomery's first sew-in

We had 14 ladies show up today... and I'm very good with that. And a welcome to our newbies!!! If we didn't fear shorting out the power, we could each have our own table! Note: there is plenty room for more. I brought home 3 completed quilts. Here is today's sew n show!

Sew ins

Not able to spend much time at the computer, so going to set this up now. 

Today, is the month sew-in at Aunt Sassys, Geneva, from 11-4 PM.  Bette and Fran would love to have you join then.

Next Tuesday, that's right, day after Labor Day, September 6, we gather again at the Moose in St. Charles.  Now, if you're wanting to cut, please bring your rotary cutter, maybe a small cutting mat and tools.  You want to help bundle or press, thank you.  You know we cut our scraps into usable strips.  I've got 3 1/2, 4 1/2 and 5 1/2" strips.  You needing a kit, let me know.  Find your own pattern or let me know which one of ours you want to do. 

This is what we have coming up:   That's 97 requests (not including requests from Foundation) to end of year.

I've attached a photo...and he gave me permission for you to put it on your blog Rita. His daughter and son-in-law where there for the presentation. Thank you, Sir, for your service.
