Do you ever wish you had a big bag with zippers on each side to make loading it easier? Many quilters, especially those who make large quilts, need a bag like that to carry their creations or to store them.

Thanks to Sue Leonard, a member of the Pine Needle Quilt Guild, our members now can have just what they want in the size needed. Sue demonstrated how she sews her bags and provided explicit directions as well as helpful tips.
Within the time allotted for the program, Sue had created a bag. Prolific quilter Pam Cantley was the lucky winner of this door prize given at the end of the meeting.
In May, our vice-president of programs, Linda Petersensmith, will help us get to know each other better with a special program. The Pine Needle Quilt Guild has grown in size over the past few years, and we need to get better acquainted. Who knows what lurks behind those smiling faces? June brings a fascinating workshop on making designer vases from clothesline and cotton fabric.
If you are a quilter or if you’d like to be a quilter, please join us. The next meeting is on Tuesday, May 7 at 1:00 p.m. downstairs in McCormick Hall at the Big Canoe Chapel.
