August Moda Club

 Thanks to all of you who brought 
Show & Tell.  
It's always so inspiring.

 Many of you participated in our recent challenge.
Our Moda Rep, Julie, had given us fabric samples.
The challenge was to take one home and use it to make something.  Thanks to those of you who participated.  So much creativity! 

In the Moda reminder, I linked a hat pattern.
 This bucket hat was made using Betz White's Reversible Bucket Hat Pattern.  This pattern is now out of print.  Sandy, said the linked pattern goes up to size 21.  She used size 21, on the Betz White pattern, to make a hat for herself.  If you come across BetzWhite's pattern in any shops you visit, you should get one while you still can!  Otherwise, you will need to adjust the above linked pattern.

 Featured Pattern of the Month
Depending on your fabric choices and needs, 
this bag works on a stroller or a walker!

Featured Cloth Book

Table Please, by Art to Heart 
Book of the Month
 Linda made this festive table runner.

Last September, Linda made this table runner from the same book.
It's full of some wonderful projects.  
The Holidays will be here before we know it!  
Make a special gift,
or something to brighten your own home.

Cold Spell
Our featured quilt!  This is a new fabric line from Moda.  
We have enough for 6 kits only, so don't miss out!

 Tari knitted this cute little sweater.  The pattern is available for purchase at Ben Franklin, and on Ravelry.  She said it is one of the most well written patterns she has used.  The featured yarn for this project is Dandelion, a fingering yarn, by Madeline Tosh.  Dandelion has some linen in it, which makes for a beautiful drape.
You can use any fingering weight yarn to make 
your own version of this sweater. 

In Stitches will be resuming on 9/24/15-reminder will be posted.

We also had a very special guest speaker, who has a challenge for us.  I will be making a separate post about her presentation.

Our next Moda Club will meet on 
September 16th at 1p.m. and 5:30p.m.
