We missed a picture of all the great Community Service quilts finished by a group who went to member Irene Bow's house. They plan to continue working as a group. (Details in the newsletter?)
The show and tell was as always a treat for the eyes.
|Mary Ellen Casey's ArtCGirlz group project
|Mary Ellen Casey used scraps to make this, from a pattern called "Go with the Flow"
|Cheryl Doody fussy cut fabric from a challenge in the Brockport group
|Nancy Schrader's sweet Easter runner
|Nancy Schrader made this for herself after making one as a gift
Julie Brandon and Val Schultz returned the fabrics made from the "collaboration" program to the volunteers who drew the pictures! What surprising- and awesome!- results!!!
Sorry I missed who each belongs to.

The piece on the left is the only fiber art in a show at St David Celebration of the Arts exhibit.
