We have had our first two Zoom Meetings and they were a success (After addressing the technology glitches). If you did not attend, you missed a great time.
The Show and Tell was a great success and we had a “See and Sew” after the second meeting. I even got to give a little quilting tip: If you are picking out the little threads after you have “un-sewn” a seam, use an old-fashioned pink eraser, and rub it over the fabric. Viola’ the little threads come right out.
Donna and Theresa attempted to have a short YouTube video, but the technology gremlins took over and we were unable to view the presentation. I promised to send the link to everyone. 5 Ways To Use Ugly Fabric. I will use the suggestions to use my ugly fabric
The Show and Tell had quite a few quilts from our members. The pictures will be in a presentation on our website. (https://calicocut-ups.org ) Please, take the time to review them. There are some beautiful creations!
See and Sew is a time after the meeting to sew together – just like we did when we met at El Mirage. You keep your Zoom session open and point your camera to your sewing area. We sew and chat together until about 2:30 or 3:00. Frankly, I was a little skeptical that this would work, but I was wrong. I had a great time and actually accomplished something.
Speaking of meetings, the weather is improving, so be on the look out for a Meeting-In-The-Park. Of course, there will be no sewing, but we will have a meeting and of course a Show and Tell.
We invite all of you to attend our Zoom Meetings. We miss seeing and chatting with you since our COVID isolation. The meetings are not too long, and the See and Sew is optional.
Your Co-Chairs Sandy H and Fred W
