MAGIC Moments...

Hello all, Tudor Rose Sampler Guild has not fallen off the face of the earth.  Due to unforeseen circumstances, our January meeting was cancelled.  So we shared our MAGIC (My Annual Good Intentions Contract) accomplishments at our February meeting.  

This year, 33 members went through their UFOs and submitted MAGIC lists of projects they would like to complete.  They ended the year with over 55 projects completed.  Good job everyone!

We would like to express a hearty thank you to Kim L. who made Tudor Rose Needle Minders and Nancy K. who sewed scissor keepers and needle pockets as prizes for those who worked on and completed projects from their MAGIC lists.  

The following Show and Tell contains both current stitching and MAGIC finishes for our members.
