Program: Handmade gifts

Andrea showed some fun things to make for holiday gifts. Click picture to take you to the link.

We decided to have another Holiday Gift Exchange at the December meeting - Bring One Take One. No holiday specific items and make something you would like to receive using modern fabrics (bright solids if you aren’t sure). Wrap it in some fun modern fabric to add a special touch. Following items can start you thinking.

Come to November 3rd Sew Day and make something or work on whatever you wish.
