Kimono Silk Scarves
Make, Buy & Take, Machines Needed
Create a beautiful, elegant and one-of-a kind treasure. With our help you will successfully use improvisational piecing to construct an exquisite scarf. Because we know you will be in love with the scarf you create you will have the opportunity to purchase the scarf you make that day and take it home! You can pick the kit you want to create from among dozens of beautiful silk collections OR you can learn to make one for the Artisan Boutique. Please RSVP to Debbie Lamb-Mechanick at email@example.com since lunch is provided.

“Need A Gift Fast!”
Business Card Holder, Fabric Magnets, Key Fobs, Tissue Cases
Four, count ‘em, 4 different simple gifts you will learn to make for all those last-minute and “little” gifts you want to give to thank someone or remember them for the Holidays. Each one will take you less than 20 minutes to make – PROMISE! Make them by the dozen.
Del Ray Fabrics (delrayfabrics.com) will again bring a beautiful selection of fab- rics for sale at a pop-up shop starting at 11. Members will be able to purchase something special to make last minute gifts or a piece of fabric as a gift itself for a quilting friend - without facing the holiday traffic rush!
Also, remember that we will continue our NCCC tradition of sharing donations of food items and collecting checks for the Capital Area Food Bank. $250 provides 625 meals for the needy and our guild makes a cumulative donation as a part of this luncheon. The 'Most Wanted' items on the Food Bank's wish list are: canned or dried beans, peanut butter, canned veggies (low sodium or no salt added), grains (brown and white rice, pasta, mac & cheese), hot and cold cereal, canned tuna, salmon or chicken, canned fruit (in light syrup or in it's own juices), 100% percent juice (all sizes including juice boxes), and healthy snacks (raisins and granola bars).
