A Season of Making and Giving

A Season of Making and Giving

A Season of Making and Giving
Many of us associate this time of year with making gifts for the ones we love and care about. As well as for those in need that we don't even know. My Quilt Guild makes quilts all year long for one of the local city's foster care programs, especially around this time. Community outreach happens in every town across the world, and we are so thankful that we can also donate to various organizations in need.
However you choose to celebrate your Holidays, we wish you much joy.

Happy Holidays!

Frocktails Anyone?
Have you heard of Frocktails? Well if you haven't take a look at how much fun Madalynne's Frocktails Holiday event was! They happen all over the world. There is probably one near you!
Madalynne's 3rd annual FROCKTAILS! Local sewists and hobbyists gathered on Saturday, December 10th, for a fun night of cocktails, light bites, swag bags, nail bar, photo booth, a fashion show, and ooh-ing and ah-ing over fellow sewists me-made. It was a great incentive to make your holiday attire! G. Guests didn't have to make their outfits to attend. There were other fun surprises throughout the evening, like giving away a PFAFF sewing machine to one lucky attendee.
