Aloha greeted the quilters for their first meeting of the new year.Let me preface this with I hate t-shirt quilts, especially using shirts from size 2 to large adult. And yet, when my precious girl flops down beside me, batting those beautiful brown eyes, "Nana, could you make me a quilt from my tee shirts...for college." "Of course," I say, "love ya". ..AAGGHH,I must be crazy races across my brain, that's 2 months, AAGGHH. And yes, a t-shirt quilt for a granddaughter going off to college is shipping tomorrow.

The Iowa State Fair has the "Butter Cow" and anything fried on a stick as its claim to fame, BUT, folks from the Craft Guild of Iowa City's claim to fame is our whomping 62% of the ribbons awarded in Fabric and Threads.Terry, Vicki, Betty S, Betty H, Jill, Linda, Bev, Cathy, and Deb entered items this year in towels, household linens, apparel, scarves for a total of 29 weaving, 11 knitting, and 2 basketry entries.
