*Marian brought in her plastic bag holders she's made for different seasons or months. Displayed in the kitchen it brings delightful conversation!

*Debbie showed her the Raffle quilt for the Clayton Band competition on February 20th at the high school. Marian and Debbie make a quilt to raffle for each Band competition hosted by Clayton High School. *Debbie brought the log cabin baby quilt to be given to her great niece. *Debbie also brought some patterns from the website for pocket organizers and storage boxes made from Quilting blocks. Maybe a future project.

*Marian brought a photo album of her sewing projects made over the years. She has increased her knowledge, abilities and skills as evidenced in the photos.

*Peggy brought in her blue purse made of fabric prints from Africa. Also a peach and sage purse with pockets, a String quilt made ten years ago as well as a jacket using design techniques she learned from a class taken 20 years ago! Knowledge never is wasted.
