Yesterday I attended a Christmas party for my local sewing circle and it was “sew” much fun! My mom, also an avid quilter, was in town so she was able to go with me.
Here’s a picture of Ann, the original founding member of our guild, Desert Quilters of Nevada, picking out her present for our gift exchange. Our guild has over 400 members and we divide up geographically into smaller sewing circles of about 20-30 people each.
I received this intricately embroidered tea towel with a picture of a Rodeo Grandma. My dear mother, a cowgirl at heart, was very envious. So she swapped me one of her aprons for the towel and we were both very pleased!
Several of the guests brought little trinkets for each of the partygoers. I gave everyone a Scissor Pal charm for their rotary cutter. In return, I received several adorable fabric ornaments and yummy goodies to take home. What a fun party!
