It seems as if we have had an explosion of sewing dates! Maybe too much in the same week? What a wonderful problem to have! But then, maybe it stretches our resources too thin, so why not reschedule our opportunities and fill the month with sewing gatherings. The Delaware Sewing Bee will moved to the 4th Tuesday of the month. 9:30-3:00. Future dates are: August 24th, September 28th, October 26th, Nov 23rd, and Dec 28th.Hopefully you can join us to work on your personal sewing projects.
What a fun retreat we’ve been having! But we miss all who could not make it. Here’s a little bit of what we’ve been doing!
Crafting! We make pumpkin stacks and it was so fun seeing all the creativity each crafter displayed. If you would like to make one yourself, follow along with this tutorial.

Just what is Sally doing? Who knows, she is always up to something! For the most part she was layering quilts to prep them for quilting, but usually there’s a little cutting up going on when she’s around. Here she is using her magic touch to spread out the top layer of her shoe quilt so she can pin baste it. She was a lucky winner of shoes at the last meeting. She added some purses and blank blocks to finish her top. Adorable!
