DESIGNER THREADS – APRIL 16, 2014
At the March meeting we had a discussion about the differences between pajamas and lounging pajamas. After this topic was resolved, we moved on to tote bags and purses. Several of us have finished purses already for the Fashion Show. Don’t forget the jacket workshop in May with Figure Flattering Quiltwear.
These jackets will make a great addition to the show.
Lately we have had a small number of members coming to Designer Threads meetings. Most of us there prefer to work on our projects at home anyway so we haven’t come to any decision about a joint project. We would like to have some input from members on ideas for our group. In the past we have made buttons and jewelry from polymer clay. We’ve also dyed fabric with Rit dye and shave cream foam and used stencils and various paints on sweatshirts and t-shirts .
If any of these appeal to you, or if you have other projects you want to try, let us know. Call or email and tell us what you’re interested in creating.
See you the 3rd Wednesday of the month at 9:30 AM.
Billie Tordt Sandy Higgins
We’re here every 3rd Wednesday at 9:30 am. Come see us.
