I went to our annual ASG (American Sewing Guild) Luncheon yesterday in Arlington. Our group was well represented. I think we have 18 people in our group and 11 of us went. To say the least, we were the loudest group there.You can't shup up women when they are talking about sewing and eating!!! We had a good lunch followed by our meeting, annual election of officers, door prizes and a wonderful trunk show. The trunk show was put on by Vivian Luster and her sidekick Bonnie, from the Sewing World of Grapevine. Vivian is the owner of this wonderful store that sells Babylock, Brother, and Janome sewing machines and they must have a great craft and sewing club (I wished I lived closer!!!) there because they sure showed some cute things from the club....Quilts, purses, tablerunners, bags, wine bottle covers, pillows, jackets and so much more. I go to this luncheon every year and this year was the best one I've been to. The food was good, the location was good (we went to the Hilton Hotel in Arlington) and the prizes were great. I won a great door prize, the John Flynn Quilting Frame. Nice prize, huh? Anyway, we all had a wonderful time and I'm looking forward to another year of sewing with this group. Here's a few pictures from the event....
Here's a cute Jelly Roll Quilt
This bag was made with 1 yard of fabric...cute, huh? It looks smaller in the picture than it actually is. This is turned sideways but the bag is actually quite big and roomy.
This is a lunchbag...check out the buttons on this one.
This pillow was made by one of the ASG members. I love Dresden plates so I just had to take a picture of this one...
This last picture is also made by one of the members. It is a sweatshirt jacket made with scraps of fabric.
