We had a meeting on Saturday of the Little Women's Club and what great fun we had! It was also Hop and Heritage Festival in Independence so parking was a issue but all the ladies made it anyway. We even got to see the parade from the shop windows! Everyone in the parade was waving to us as they passed by. Later we had a couple of ladies come in that said they were in the parade and wanted to stop right then and come in to shop! How fun!!
We are still waiting on the offical quilts from Jo Morton for Little Women's Club but we handed out a notebook cover pattern for all the ladies and they had fun picking out fabric squares to make the cover with. We even added a note pad and pencle for their books. Everyone had a great time visiting and getting to know each other. We also had a great show and tell - I think we have some very creative ladies in this group!
Good news from Jo Morton - she will launch Club #9 at the Huston Quilt Market in early October so we should have the supplies by our next meeting. I will post the new poster as soon as I get it for you all to see.
Our next meeting will be October 31st (Halloween Day!) and we are going to have fun with a finger food potluck along with the meeting. We will also offer sewing after the meeting in the afternoon if anyone is interested in staying for that. We will be showing some of Jo Morton's techniques at that time (bring your sewing machine if you want to stay and sew).
If you are still thinking of joining in the club - call and let us know - we would love to have you join in on all the fun with us. (503-837-0676)
