Seward News Dec. 2018

Greetings from Seward!

We really haven’t had winter yet, but no one’s terribly upset. I swear, someone was mowing their lawn just before Thanksgiving!

Our group has been pretty busy, but some are like ravens distracted by something shiny. There’s Splendid Sampler, all things Elizabeth Hartman (penguins, arctic animals, and in January everyone will be making Swan Island). The swans will be a sew along.

Speaking of sew alongs, mysteries, and other fun things; some of us are trying to finish up last year’s Bonnie Hunter mystery, Ringo Lake, so we can get moving on this year’s mystery, Good Fortune. Now, even more fun to come, Gudrun Erla has started a sew-along for her pattern Stella. We’ve had both Bonnie Hunter and Gudrun Erla as instructors for the Guild, so we can relate to these. Yikes!!

Poor Heather. She has taken the task of managing our UFO club, and is doing a great job. But as I mentioned, there are ravens after a shiny tidbit who aren’t getting their UFO’s done!! Heather is very patient, and keeps sending reminders, and status reports.

December 2nd we’ll be having a Christmas Sew Sunday. We’ll make a day of it, and will be using both the patterns we all learned at Getting Ready for Christmas, and another project by one of our gals here. This will be a fun time.

We’ll be having our annual Polar Bear Quilt Show on Saturday, January 26th. It will be in the same place, basement of Resurrection Lutheran Church (alley access). The church is on the Northeast corner of 3rd & Jefferson. I know it’s a bad time to travel, but we’d just love to see you!

Have a Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and see you all in February! We’re all looking forward to being with you at retreat!
