This is just a note to let you know what’s going on in Nimblefingers this summer.

Last week I taught some of you to make my current favorite block, “Star fling.” We will continue working on those this week. I also brought in my shortcut instructions I had prepared for the Village Quilters quilt show. If you would like help making those simple blocks I will be available for help anytime.

Next week Louise Claflin will begin teaching us to appliqué. Louise is a fabulous appliqué-r: if you’ve seen any of her work you know what I mean. She will help us to make a table runner. This will probably take several weeks to finish but you will end up with a beautiful table runner! If everyone could bring in some of the proper colored fabrics we could all share—just in case we don’t all have the right colors. I will pass out the instructions and supply list tomorrow (7/25/06).

Finally, Nimblefingers has a blog! (an online newsletter). Go to the Voorheesville Public Library homepage, click on Adult Services, then click on Nimblefingers News and there you are! Or you can go directly to the blog at Here you can find out what went on at each meeting in case you missed one. I hope you will take a look at it and leave me some messages. Thanks go to librarian Judie Harren and Lesa Clarke for making our blog look so professional. I think it will be a fun thing to look at and I hope you will too!
