The Git ‘Er Done Piecemakers Feb Chapter Report

Our NEW YEAR has started out FANTASTIC!

January kept us busy and informed. New officers came onboard. We had two very great short demos, both on bindings. And oh sew “helpful.” One making it much faster than hand sewing the binding on and the other adding a special “zing” to an otherwise boring binding. We had another successful surgery hat charity day. We made over 150 hats by noon. Thanks you so much to the quilters of both groups and non-quilters who came and ironed and strung the elastic. Great job, Ladies! Its been suggested that maybe next time, we should have lunch. What do you think???

Our upcoming month has a teacher coming in for an all-day workshop. This will be a shared event with the Hummingbirds. We have UFO’s due, will our treasury account get a “BIG” boost or have we all finished those “Un Finished Objects” that have been taking up space? I’ve heard some have a lot of miles on them. Oh, and the “presidents challenge” is due. Some lucky quilter who participated in this will be the lucky winner of a pillow with 12 covers, one for each month. (Pick me! Pick me!) And of course, our big time event of the year is coming up also.
