    hi--I live in western NE. Every fall, the 3 quilt groups in the county get together for a luncheon and program. Last yr the theme was aprons, along with food from the "50"s(lots of jello recipes!)--also had everyone sew a cute pincushion. Any ideas for themes -- as we are to hostess the group in the fall--starting early for wonderful ideas. thank you!!

    Hi Mary! Welcome from Michigan!

    Theme ideas.......what to make

    casseroles....casserole covers/pot holders to make.

    coffee, latte, tea....mug rugs/coasters, mug cozies.

    sewing.....thread catchers with pin cushions on top.

    money.....wallets.

    autumn....table runners/place mats/coasters.

    Just a few ideas off the top of my head.

    Let us know what you decide on.

    Welcome from Ohio. Last year at a retreat we had a Hawaiian theme. You could make fabric leis or a small stuffed sea turtle.

    went to one - 'Breast Cancer Awareness' the theme.
    We were asked to bring block/s that used pink & white fabrics - members of sponsoring guilds will make into quilts & use for cancer patients or raffle with $$ donated to area Cancer fund
    We each rec'd a pin made will small rolled pinks & with BC ribbon charm glued onto cardboard - PM me if you want to see pict.
    Program was a trunk show - Pretty in Pink - speaker shared quilts from 1800's to present ~ all had pink in them.

    "show & tell" participants shared projects they had done using pink fabrics

    60's theme; food can be burger bar with all the fixings and fries and "green rivers" or "cherry cokes".
