Patchworkers August Meeting
The Collinsville Patchworkers were pleased to return to their "home base" - the Library, for their August 14 meeting, and several items of importance were discussed. Reports were given re the opening of the Cotton Cottage fabric shop in Claremore; Saturday Sew-In details; the Fall Retreat; the upcoming bus tour of quilt shops in a 4-state area; the projected arrival of grandbabies and great grandbabies; and lots of Show and Tell.

Members participating in the Block Exchange presented their pink and blue blocks to Carol Boren, and Linda Pfeffer's name was drawn for the September exchange (purples, with blues, on white). The September "nickel exchange" will be blues, in recognition of the month's birthstone - sapphire.

The program was provided by Linda Jenkins, and she shared a tip on making sturdy templates by fusing 3 layers of freezer paper, and cutting to the shape desired. She also suggested brushing spray starch on difficult-to-fold corners and points when appliquéing.

The next meeting will be Sept. 11, and is it open to the public.

The All Thumbs Knitters Class met August 15 at the Collinsville Library, with ten in attendance. Several members had items to donate to Newborns In Need, plus knitting tips and resources were shared among group members.

The program consisted of printed instructions and a demonstration of 4 ways to tie-on a new yarn, without leaving ends to be tidied up at the end of a project.

The next gathering of the All Thumbs Knitters will be their Sit 'N Knit, Sept. 5, at the Library.
