The Girls of October

October Weekend Part 4: Putting Faces to Names

We often bemoan the fact that we rarely take a group photo at our Brown Bagger events. It's awfully hard to entice a group of busy quilters into leaving their machines and posing for a photo.

Here's a group photo of our weekend:
The room we sew in is not large. It holds16 tables that are set up in four groups of four with room for two ironing boards and snacks. We talk across each other all weekend, so it is a lively gathering. While we don't have assigned seats, we generally have been sitting in the same place for about 20 years. Once in a while Joannie goes wild and switches tables.

Here's a round the room tour:

As soon as you come in the door, you will find Jo Ann E.

Also found at Jo Ann E.'s table are Debbie, Lexine and Valerie.
Nancy D. is the brave soul who sits next to the outside door. Freezing in the winter and hot in the summer!
Sitting with Nancy D. this weekend were Joanne S., Sally and Kim P.
Joanne S. with her lovely niece Emma. Nancy D. gave Emma the boxy pouch she is holding.

At the next set of tables were Kim G., Lynne, Lori, Joan S. and Joannie C.  Lori was only able to come on Friday and Saturday and Joan S. was only able to make it on Sunday, so we played musical quilting tables.

Last, but not least, you will find Marion, Pat, and me. Sue A. also joined us on Friday and evaded my camera! We thought Joan S. would sit with us on Saturday and Sunday, but she ended up in Lori's empty spot.
Thanks for visiting!

Pugs and kisses,
