Origami in cloth

What fun we had, thanks to Lucretia and Lisa. Now we are ready to make more. Friends, fabric and fun. Just perfect. 

And check out Sandie's hat on Jan M. 

Entirely classy and lovely.

Technology to rev up your creativity

Desi guided us through devices, operating systems, the best software for easy picture editing, flexible picture management, as well as a demo of a free downloadable pattern. Thanks, Desi! So much cool stuff out there; so little time!

And short but very sweet show n tell.

Barb copied a RTW dress to create this pretty vacation dress.

I love this little box bag Desi made. Perfect fabric from Sew Main Street in Woodstock
June has achieved near perfection in the fit of her pants.

Sandie's new jacket stemmed from an accidental pairing of two stash fabrics.

Jan made an adorable pink and white sherling coat for her sweet daughter.

And she made a tiny gray bankers suit for little Sean. He loves the lining featuring Lightning McQueen.

Of course, the tiny gray pants had pleats and pockets.

Shibori - Part I

True to the name "Sew Incredibles", we had a great program on Shibori tonight presented by Martha & Sandie.

Happy Martha works on her shibori project

Many gorgeous samples were shown by both Sandie & Martha and then we got to stitching on our mini shibori projects, which we will dye next month at our meeting.

Martha's dyed piece - using cranberries!

At show & tell, we had a few lovely surprises. A beautiful skirt made by June (sorry I didn't get a photo!) and Sandie presented Lucretia with this adorable stuffed hippo for her new granddaughter.

 Lucretia shared a beautiful photo and story of a "Quilt of Valor" made for her son by Sandie and women from her synagogue that was presented to him after he returned from a tour in Afghanistan. Here a photo of Sandie and Lucretia's son with the Quilt that was made for him.

Truly touching - this group of women are true friends. We are not just friends who sew - we are a support system for one another. I am so glad to find this group of loving, supportive and generous women. Thank you for being Sew Incredible, ladies!
