UPDATE: United Kingdom, Shropshire Chapter

I just got photos from Nikki in Shropshire. They had flooding, a major setback at their studio several months ago as you can see in the first photo. Ugh. But look at their new space! It's so wonderful, clean and organized, I want to go hang out and sew with them! Congrats on the new digs Nikki, can't wait to see all the bags you make there. Cheers! Teresa

Hi Teresa,

Just a quick line to let you know after a very long 7 months Loudwater has re-opened 🎉🎉🎉.
We’re still doing some sorting and moving of things around the Studio, but hope to re-establish the Green Bag Group in the next few weeks. Will send pictures when we get going properly and keep you updated. But for now thought you might like to see the new look Studio. 😀

Photo Finish Friday

Friends in my front yard on Christmas day!
Whew, it's been a crazy week. The kids are back in school, tennis started up again and people need their pants hemmed! To end the week on a great note, I went with some friends to see the Monet exhibit at the Denver Art Museum today. So. Much. Loveliness. If you have a chance to go, I highly recommend it. You will not be disappointed. Have a fabulous weekend my friends! XOXO--Teresa

UPDATE: New Zealand Chapter

Sounds like Olive has been busy and look at the tab/snap she added to the bottom of the bag to keep it nice and tidy on the go! Great job Olive, keep on sewing! Teresa

Hi Teresa  and happy New year to you and your family  from New Zealand .

I have been sewing up small items like needlneedle case and little purses   for our  Palmerston North  ROSE  CITY  QUILTERS  guild  mini Symposium  #Quilt Central, coming up in October 2020. These   to go into registrants goodie bags. I had this fabric given to me to make items but it was too good to cut up into small pieces as the pattern wouldn't show up much so I decided to make a GBL BAG . One lucky symposium registrant will get a GBL  BAG. If I am donated some more suitable fabric might be able to make some more. I made it with a tab  to make it super easy for the recipient to put in in their handbag when not in use

The symposium colours are mint and grey so all items have to be in that colour range. Not a very common colour at the moment. I have been stretching the mint a bit and going into a bit of Apple green and sage other wise wouldn't have enough variety  of fabrics

Keep up good work.
