Patchwork Quilters
The Collinsville Patchworkers met January 11, 2011 at the Library and welcomed guest Teresa Pugh. Members shared their New Year's resolutions, as they pertained to the quilting world, and Janice Coke's program centered around the Snail Trail quilt pattern, and information about different adjustable tables for your sewing machine. Members enjoyed several door prizes, and discussed plans for the Saturday Sew-In.

The next meeting will be February 8, 2011, and the dozen 5" squares for the drawing will be in red and/or have a Valentine's Day theme.
