Could we exist without a pretty zipper pouch?
Think about it......it is the "perfect" way to organize and contain multiple items in so many ways --- our make-up, special jewelry, fingernail polish and files, small sewing tools, office supplies, crochet hooks, charging cords/earbuds, and I think each of us could list more. You could even give a personalized handmade zipper pouch with a gift card inside as a Christmas present to someone special.
This upcoming Saturday, Nov. 11th at 12:00 pm (note "special starting time"), to mix it all up, our feature program is all about sewing tips for making your own 'handmade' pouches taught by GMQG's Michele Blake.
Over the years, Michele has made some of the neatest bags and brought to our Show & Share for us to see. Thus, to have her come and present her tips is a real treat. Then, as an added bonus, after our GMQG program meeting, Michele will be hosting a Zipper Pouch Workshop. If you are interested in joining this free workshop from 1:30 to 3pm, email Cindy Lammon at firstname.lastname@example.org *Note: For those attending the workshop, please click here for Michele's supply list.

From Cindy Lammon:
A special update on the quilt for Las Vegas:
We needed 30 blocks to make our quilt for the Las Vegas MQG quilt drive. As of the Sew-In day, we received 32 and a couple more a few days later. We went ahead and sewed the top together at the Sew-In on Oct 20th. The quilt is now quilted and being bound. We'll have it to show at the November meeting and will ship it on November 13th making us very close to their Nov. 15th deadline!
Thanks to all of you who submitted blocks. The LVMQG is also collecting blocks that they will make into quilts, so we will be sending the extras that have been turned in. If you would still like to make a block or two, we'll need it by our Nov 11th meeting so it can be sent with the quilt. You all are amazing - I wasn't sure we would be able to complete it in time. Thank you so much! -- Cindy
We look forward to seeing each of you, this Saturday from 12:00 pm to 1:30 at:
