September's meeting included a demonstration by Christa Bushousen on how to make threaded patterns. We have a Card Project going with our members to make cards for residents in a local nursing home who never get cards or visitors. One of our members used this technique to make her cards and they are stunning. Now we all know how to make them.

Then we tried our hand at Akim (no pun intended!), a hand with some exaggerated letters. This turned out best written with a ball point pen and can make an interesting envelope to send to someone special. Another great meeting!!
