* Tea Towel Apron. Tea Towel will be provided for everyone. This pattern was taught at a UVQG class several years ago and is still one of my favorites. Davidene will bring white twill tape ($1 for 2 yards) for apron strings,


* Wool Pin Cushion. Nancy Jones will be teaching this class. The price is $7.50 and includes everything you need. You can pay her directly at retreat, but you must sign up ahead of time in person at guild meeting or text "wool" to 801-368-3910. She needs to know how many kits we need.


 Davidene is bringing her studio cutter. You may bring your own fabric to cut:
