More about the March 2019 Meeting:

Tiny Purse Contest

CNCH 2019’s theme is Fiber Therapy and attendees are asked to make a “First  Aid Kit”. As a tiny purse, it will used to carry whatever small essentials you need to carry with you, such as a room key, phone, etc., into the cafeteria. The cafeteria does not allow carrying bags inside, but will allow our project:  a bag no larger than 6” X 9” and it must fit into a quart size plastic bag.  You can add a handle, a cross body strap or make it a clutch.  Nothing larger will be allowed into the cafeteria.  

Bags will be judged by attendees and  prizes will be awarded Sunday morning at breakfast.

Many of you most definitely have scraps and pieces of weavings that would fit this size.  At the March meeting we are going to have a workshop to begin work on the bags. 

 We will have some fabric that can be used if you have nothing, along with a sewing machine. We’ll also have a short demo on a very easy way to install a zipper and lining in one step. Bring a zipper and lining material if you would like help doing this during the meeting on your own fabric. 

Please bring scissors, pins and whatever else you need.  It will be fun to see what others make.  You can then take your bag home and have a couple of months to finish and embellish it.  If you’re not going to the conference you can still make a bag just for fun and to use some of your your stash! Come for the inspiration and leave with a great project.
