November 2012

There were 12 members and one guest present at the November meeting.  Everyone was reminded that he Gossip Challenge size was changed to 16" x 20"  vertical orientation. Some members who drew Number 1 in their Gossip challenge group have finished theirs and given them to the Number 2 members.

Jeanne has ordered black fabric for making hanging background displays for our Book Challenge quilts.  She will bring the bolt of fabric to the January meeting and we will make the hanging backgrounds as our program.

Both the Book Challenge and the Under the Sea quilts will be displayed in March at Big Sky Quilt Retreat in Billings.

Kathy H showed the purses and scarves she dyed for a Christmas bazaar (see photos).  She used ice dying on most of them, and used silk (acid) dyes on a couple.

Our December 3rd meeting will be our Christmas party.  We will each bring food to share, and have a hand- made gift exchange for those who wish to participate.  Bring your 2013 calenders so we can plan programs for next year.

Carolyn gave a program on making ceramic tiles (lower right)
This was the first try for many of us, and we had a lot of fun.  Carolyn made the clay tiles for us, we painted them, and she took them home to fire.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING everyone, and we will see you in December.
