Saturday’s appliqué workshop can also be done in cotton. It doesn’t have to be silk. The kits are all silk but Christine will let everyone know what they need tomorrow if they want to do cotton appliqué. Also, they will need an 18-inch background piece for the pillow and no need to bring any silk threads as she will have them. Patterns will also be available.

Bev, Lin and Susan: Thank you so much for having us along to the
Merrimack Valley quilters this week, and for your attendance at the Mock
Mola workshop this afternoon. The response to the challenge at the
workshop was remarkable, and Cathy was more than satisfied with the
progress you all made. It makes it very rewarding for us to be able to
see what you accomplished. Please do send us a copy of the show and
tell at the June meeting. Individually you may (should) also send
pictures of your finished work. 8-))
all the best, John & Cathy
