MAY'S MONTHLY MEETING
Last night's monthly meeting saw us joined by local wood fiber artist, Ralph Simpson. Ralph gave us some insight into his journey up to today. After retiring from his career as a biologist, Ralph went to the NB College of Craft & Design and now creates and teaches weaving - baskets and other artworks using barks, grasses, flowers and other plants. His talk was interesting and informative and his work is beautiful.
Ralph opened the meeting and show and tell closed the meeting - enjoy the following pictures of both.
And now, our show and tell - everyone should be so proud of such beautiful work

We've just completed Day 2 of our mini retreat. Many thanks to Christine, Catherine and Heather for all their hard work to keep us well entertained and fed. It was an awesome time with lots of shared information, tips and tricks on top of the beautiful prizes, laughter and tons of sewing.
A project was given to each mini retreat participant. Quite a few were completed and some were almost finished.
Marlene's beautiful quilt. She used her sewing machine's decorative stitches in each block.
Tickets were sold on this lovely grouping of fabrics. We all really wanted to win and Catherine was the lucky lady
