Patty Project Cutting Party

Last Saturday morning (January 6, 2018), a group of amazing volunteers joined Janet Copen and Amy Chiera for a Cutting Party. Sue Glasnapp graciously opened her beautiful home to us and we were able to cut all of the fabric for the Patty Project - pincushions, pillowcases, and quilt tops !

The Gold Coast members present were Raine Cavallo, Jean DeFrances, Sue Balz, Beverly Fine, Lani Miller, Kathy Jackson, Janet Copen, Sue Glasnapp, and Amy Chiera. We wrapped up the party with delicious refreshments, provided by Janet. It was a wonderful and inspiring way to begin our day!
