Hello everyone, Mary Ellen here. It was so nice to see many of you at the museum on Thursday. I hope you are enjoying your prizes.

Did you make a New Year’s resolution this year? How many resolved to use the fabric you already own rather than buying more? I resolve that every year with only moderate success, but I think COVID will be helping me stick to it this year. I’m noticing that on our guild FaceBook page there are posts about using your scraps and stash appearing. I’m working on favors for an upcoming party (wedding shower), trying to use my scraps. It’s a small fabric patchwork basket that I’m making assembly line fashion. When I complete one, I’ll post a photo and share the pattern […]
