Our 2016 Challenge will be
 
STRIPES
 
This is bound to spark your creativity:  Feel free to incorporate stripes in a garment, an accessory (such as a bag or a hat), a quilt, a home dec item or whatever appeals to you.  Bring to or wear at our November Tea and Fashion show.  
 
 
 

February meeting was a trunk show and book signing with local author and designer Dolin Bliss O’Shea. Her new book, The Little Black Dress, is a wonderful retrospective of this fashion staple, and features patterns for each dress…. plus great variations from the originals. Lots of options! 
 
For those that either attended Dolin's trunk show or bought the book, make a garment from the book and wear it to the May meeting for a little show and tell.
 
 
We still have 6 books available if anyone wants one. They are $22 for members and $30 for non-members.
 
Please email Annalisa   taycanda@comcast.net  if you would like her to bring to the May meeting.
