Sophia showing off the door prize
Each third Thursday of the month since June 2010, when I started the Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild, I have been laughing with, learning from, and being inspired by my friends at our guild meeting. The meetings are a highlight of my month and I love them! Our February meeting is coming up on Thursday the 16th and I've made a little Valentine's-themed door prize to give away. It's a log cabin needle book made using Christina - The Sometimes Crafter's pattern. I don't get a lot of time at the sewing machine these days, so it was fun to have a small project that came together quickly and easily!
What is a needle book, you ask? It's a handy organizer to keep your needles tucked away while you're working on a hand sewing project. I've never had one before and I've already picked out some fabrics to make one for myself!
The needles are pinned into the "pages" of the book, which are made from 100% wool felt that I found at local art shop Collage Collage. I've never used wool felt before and it's quite luxurious - the pins slide into it like butter!
So, if you want a chance to win this needle book and other lovely prizes, come on by the VMQG's February meeting at Langara College. I hope to see you there!
