January 2016 Meeting

At our January meeting we talked about plans for the coming year, beginning with a "Wings" workshop presented on the 23rd by Gayle Arsenault at Sawyer Sewing Centre. Gayle will also be showing us how to make a Leprechaun Hat in March.

Next month's meeting features the first of our three doll challenges this year. The theme is "Royal or Royalty". We're planning to gather for a sewing day at Sawyer's on March 12th.

The Cloth-a-dollics are excited to be participating in The Victoria Quilters' Guild Show & Sale in May. Challenge dolls for this event are due at our April meeting.
