November Fun!

Time to Sew Event - November 19th
November has been a busy month for our guild!  After our successful Tea & Auction, we immediately got busy on our next service project!
Sam is Chairperson for the Raffle Quilt Committee and several members spent the day creating the quilt top!
Everyone present pitched in ...
... working in our own projects ...
... while waiting for the next raffle quilt step.
It was a true team effort!
Marianne brought some recently finished quilts to Show and Share!  This is made from men's suiting fabric for a friend!
A friend has adopted two girls, so Marianne immediately got busy ...
... making a quilt for each little girl!
Marianne has been busy working on her fabric stash by making this Leader and Ender quilt designed by Bonnie Hunter!
Success!  We finished piecing the raffle quilt ... guild member Diane has offered to quilt it!  The quilt will be donated to the Hospital Auxiliary and they will raffle it to generate funds for the Long Term Care program!  Huge thanks to Sam for organizing this!

Quilter's Anonymous Event - November 27
Valerie brought in several Show and Share items!  So inspiring!  A Holiday tote to hang on her door.
A finished table topper!
And this gorgeous, king sized BOM!  Stunning!
Barb spent the day working on a hand embroidery project.
Valerie was busy piecing a new project!  A great way to celebrate her recent finishes!
Shannon was busy being a Christmas Elf ... the gifts she made were impressive!
The recipient of this adorable baby quilt will be arriving in the near future, Sam was busy getting it done!

Distance Member Update!
New quilter, Erica, traveled all the way from her home in Tacoma, WA to attend our 30th Anniversary Event with her aunt, Barb C.  She had never made a full sized quilt, but with the assistance of Sherri Falls, she accepted the challenge!
And here is a picture of her finish!  Wowser!  We may be miles apart, but members here in Cordova are cheering her on!  Beautiful work Erica!
