Sophie James shows her baby quilt May 2017

Sophie James

Sophie James has been taking sewing lessons from Diana Ramsey for several several years.  She started with simple embroidery stitches and moved on to learning how to hand stitch small felt craft items.  For her 9th birthday last year, her parents gave her a small sewing machine.  She has sewn Christmas stockings for all of her family, a pumpkin centerpiece for Thanksgiving and a throw pillow, on which she had embroidered a unicorn.  When she found out she was getting a new little sister, she and Diana picked out flannel fabric and made a flannel baby quilt.  Diana did the cutting and Sophie sewed the top.  She has a natural talent and passion for sewing, and really looks forward to her weekly sewing lessons.

Swappers Mini-group Auction Quilt:

The Swappers Minigroup (many but not all are pictured) made this quilt for auction at the Yavapai County Big Brothers/Big Sisters Gala Event last November. All of the fabrics came from our individual stashes and Quilter's Dream donated a portion of the machine quilting. At auction, the project brought in a "nice am't" of money - and all for a very worthwhile cause.
