Superhero Capes made for the Epilepsy Foundation
Superhero Capes made for the Epilepsy Foundation

Our June meeting featured a visitor from Craftsy and a dazzling collection of superhero capes, made for a children’s camp sponsored by the Epilepsy Foundation. This month’s show-and-tell was particularly inspiring. Amy and Anne shared fabrics that they’d designed themselves (photos on our Facebook page), and Kari has just published a new pattern for vibrant quilted pillow covers!

We met on June 13th at Fancy Tiger Crafts, with Erin as our facilitator. Number present: 16 members and 9 visitors
