July Meetings

Our first meeting in July was a lot of fun as our members presented their PUP (Poor Unfinished Projects).  The group chose which project the member needs to complete during the next year.  I am looking forward to seeing the end result of these projects.

If you want to participate in this activity, feel free to bring your 3 projects and share during the show and tell portion of the meeting.  We will be more than happy to choose the one that you really don't want to finish.

July 17th - Sunday Sew in.  Feel free to join up with other Nimble Thimbles members for a free sew in day at the Chandler Police station.  This is a come and go event so come on down for any amount of time you want to devote to getting some projects done.

July 19th is our next meeting and the topic is quilting with rulers.  Our talented members will be actually showing us how to use rulers on our domestic machines and allowing us a chance to play.  This is a great opportunity to try this new way of quilting.
