Shibori - Part I

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

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.

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!
