Left-Over Threads

I thought this was a good hint from a friend, Agnes Davis, from Florida. She is a member of the Brazilian Dimensional Embroidery International Guild (BDEIG).

I usually put my left-over threads outside for the birds. They use them to make their nests. Here in Florida we create some pretty colorful nests and very happy birds.

Do you have a hint? Share themwith us. Send them to Pennie Smith or Pat Wilson via snail mail or email.

From Our Presindent


Happy 2010 to you!
While sorting through and putting away Christmas decorations, why not make a sweep through your sewing/craft areas. We offer you a great way to cull some of your clutter…

Our January meeting will include a sale of unwanted items from our stashes. Of course one can also shop and find something different to take home. All monies will go to our treasury and items not picked up after the meeting will be donated to Grannies Attic in Puyallup (which supports Good Samaritan Hospital.)

Be sure to bring LUNCH and plan to enjoy our class in the afternoon. Contact Pat Wilson if you are planning on staying for the class so she can have enough supplies on hand.

Remember, projects for our contest are due in April. If you haven’t already begun, you still have time to do so.

I look foreword to a busy day with you, January 29.
