Please note that there will not be a demonstration at this Saturday's meeting BUT historical costume maker Elizabeth Elwell from Cote & Cutler Outfitters will be selling a selection of spectacular remnants of ecclesiastical brocades, silks, linens, some prints, as well as calicos, wools and other bits and bobs at discount prices. An ideal Christmas present for people into crazy patchwork or something a little bit different in their quilting stash. Remember, non-members are welcome to attend Guild meetings. If you can join us, be sure to introduce yourself!
