As the incoming program chair for the Village Squares Quilters I am at no loss finding quilters to visit with us and share their experience and quilts. I’m excited to have several people lined up for the fall already and will reveal closer to the time. *I’d like to let the guild know first.*
One challenge all program chairs face is budget. Speakers cost money, I have a certain amount to spend and must be wise in how I accomplish this feat! In an effort to be slightly frugal, so we can have some really awesome speakers later on I’m going to present at one of the meetings and this is where I’m asking for your help.
Back story – one of our members sent me a pdf file from Prym/Dritz with lots of information on their notions. She would be interested in knowing which pins, needles rotary cutters and so many of our other quilting tools people use and why they use them.
If you have time to leave me a note letting me know what are your favorite, can’t live without notions. Over the years I’ve used quite a variety of pins and have found that I like two different pins for different reasons. I also know I don’t like the pins we used in school partly because they’re short and thick and partly because they’re not quite as sharp as the other two brands I’m using today.
I’m looking forward to hearing from you!
