The Zig Zag Sewing Club had its monthly meeting Feb. 6 at Parkside Plaza meeting room in Garnett. Evelyn Gillogly was hostess. Eighteen members and two guests, Janet Dietrich, Garnett, and Mamie Sommer, Greeley, attended.
President Grace Donham conducted the meeting. Members answered roll call with brief biographical information about themselves and also telling why they joined the club.
December meeting minutes were read and approved. Wanda Roberts presented the treasurer’s report. The club’s customary contribution was sent to Betty Kimball’s church in Princeton in her memory. The treasurer will also be sending contributions for memorials of recently deceased husbands of Grace Donham and Berneice Peterson.
Jackie Leach and Mrs. Donham reported on Christmastime delivery of gifts to the club’s adopted family in Paola. Thanks to Zig Zag members for their generous donations of canned goods, quilts and gift items.
Bags were redistributed to those participating in the Round Robin quilt block exchange. Each recipient will add a border to the block contained in the bag and return it at the March meeting.
Marilynn Lolley and Grace Donham won door prizes.
During “Show and Tell” members displaced recent sewing projects. They included plastic canvas items and numerous quilts (baby, hand-embroidered, machine-embroidered, T-shirt and a rag-edge quilt from recycled jeans).
The program was a “Remember when” reading by Gillogly, recalling items like running boards on cars, dimmer switches on the floor, supper instead of dinner, sprinkler stoppers for bottles instead of steam irons.
The club’s next meeting will be a carry-in lunch March 6 at the home of Betty Kaufman in Paola.
