June 2024 – All about needles

Rhonda Pierce from Schmetz Needles came to share her vast knowledge of sewing machine needles. We had a bunch of visitors from as far as two hours away who drove here to hear her present. Rhonda taught us about the different needle tips and and shapes and sizes, and when to use which. She also handed out these niftly little reference booklets to help us know at a glance what kind of needle we’re looking at (they’re color-coded, natch).

After a short break for refreshments, Rhonda delighted us with a trunk show of her gorgeous garments and quilts, one more colorful than another.

It was a fabulous morning! You should join us next time. We meet the second Saturday each month, at the Community of Christ Church, 1500 Blairs Ferry Rd in Hiawatha.
