Seward News

The last few months have been busy for Seward. In January we had a local retreat at Seward Resort, with surprisingly quite a number of attendees. A few of our regulars were outside at a longarm class, having a whopping good time. February saw a number of us in Homer, enjoying the Guild’s Retreat. That event is always a must, it gives us a chance to catch up a bit with our friends from afar, and learn what everyone is pushing under their needles. Beautiful works!! We are having another local retreat in March around Seward’s Day weekend, and it’s almost full. There’s a mystery quilt, strip bingo, and all kinds of different things in store.

With that, some of us may be able to finish at least one of the items to which we committed for the second annual UFO contest. Heather Johnston is again the administrator, keeping track of everything from each entrant’s list, fees paid, length of commitment (1/2 year, entire year, etc.), prizes, etc. What a great contest. I only hope I can actually finish some of those ancient items!!

There are classes coming up at Sew’n Bee Cozy that we’re looking forward to attending. After completing the Mountain Haven lap quilts reported last newsletter, the group is back to doing Baby Welcome Wagon quilts as a community project, which is ongoing. The little ones are popping up consistently!!

We’re all looking forward to seeing everyone at the April Annual meeting, and the warmer weather, classes offered by the Guild, and the occasional Quilt Show peppered along the way in our travels!!

Happy Stitching!
