Carol taught "Tea Time Placemats" which used a paper piecing technique of Judy Niemeyer's. She is working through the process to be a certified Judy Niemeyer instructor.

|Colleen's Lone Star Magic blocks|
I watched beautiful blocks being made! Colleen said these go together "easily" because there are no Y seams!
|Half a block|
|Three quarters of a block!|
|Robbie and Lela sharing their totes!|
Lela taught the "Fantastic Tote" class using 5 inch squares. At the end of the day, Robbie had a finished tote! She shared with me that she had purchased the squares she used for $2 at the fall stash bazaar!

Turnout for this event was good. About 100 members participated in the event. It was the first time that we had held the event at this church.
Yes, I was "in charge" of the event; but, I had a lot of help! It took seven of us about 45 minutes to set up the classrooms. Ten of us took about 45 minutes to return all the classrooms to ready for church services. . .including vacuuming!
Jean's expression was indicative of the day. There were lots of smiles and camaraderie. Participants checked out other classrooms often and new friendships formed. The day was a total success!
I've been chair of the committee for two years so next year, someone else will be the chair. I'll be available to support their efforts any way that I can.
