A Treat from the Quilt Show Committee

Below are pictures from the Sew-In provided by the Miamisburg Quilt Show Committee.  All Material Girl members who work throughout the year and during the Miamisburg Quilt Show were rewarded for their volunteer work with a two day Sew-In!!  We had about 35 members  join together for two days at Material Girls host church, First Baptist Church of Miamisburg activity center.   Lunch was provided both days by the Quit Show Committe.  Why were we there?  Sew Sew Sew and yes, Munch, Munch, Munch.  You can see from our pictures plenty of lovely projects were worked on and some actual finishes.  And the wonderful spread of lunches and munches.

Get Out’a Town!

The group spent the day as road warriors and shoppers covering ground between Miamisburg and Chillicothe.  They were received by Creations So Clever and Old Town Fabrics.  Links to each of their web sites have been provided. The quilt shops had plenty of staff to help them and also provided a demo to show them some new projects.  And it looks like they had a very nice chariot for their travel.  Thanks Linda!
