12 ladies attended Nimblefingers this week. I began the meeting with some announcements: 1. We wll be putting up our quilt show on Feb. 3, so you need to bring in yours quilts that day ; 2. Our Open House will be on Feb. 10, so bring cookies that day ; 3. We will take the quilt show down on Feb. 24 ; 4. On Sat., Apr. 4 Bonnie Turner will be giving a Crazy Quilt workshop here at the library. This is an all day program and sign-up is required. After the announcements Kathy O. showed us her latest quilt top called Lattices. Deb J. pulled out her little raffle quilt which Kathy O. and I proceeded to machine quilt. Oops! Don't tell anyone that we did it and not Deb! Next week Kathy and I will pull out the sewing machines, her fancy Bernina and our library Brothers, and demonstrate machine quilting. Marie brought in some roving to show us since Elaine got us all interested when she came in with her spinning wheel. Fran was sewing the binding on her really cool flannel quilt. Pictures will follow when they become available.
