So…at the Christmas party, which was very well attended (thank you so much, Sherrie Perez!) we decided to not end Loose Threads but to regroup and do Loose Threads differently. So in 2018 we’re planning quarterly get-togethers on selected Saturdays(TBA) – you will need to RSVP to these if you want to attend. We decided to do a project of some kind when we get together and sew. More information coming in 2018!
Mark your calendars! I got the rest of our dates. We meet on Thursdays at 4pm in the Country Oaks Baptist Church Chapel.

First of all – Thank you Sherrie Perez for our lovely Loose Threads summer BBQ. You are such a wonderful hostess. Please thank Richard for his YUMMY BBQ chicken and chunks of pineapple! Thank you too, ladies, for all the great food you brought. Delish!
We made some decisions about our future at the BBQ.
- Biggest decision: we are going back to Thursday nights.
I have requested some dates for 2016/2017 from the church. Will let you know if we get them. We need to coordinate with Dress A Girl sew group. They meet on Thursdays, too, but their coordinator, Margo, comes to Loose Threads, too!
We have a signup sheet going for you all to volunteer to help in the upcoming LT year. Cathy Criger has volunteered to oversee September, October and November. We’ll see what she comes up with for us – doing some classes has been requested.
New member Carol Westover has volunteered to do Roster. DeAnna Sturgeon took over buying the gift cards. I can still oversee our little website and be Admin on our Facebook group. It looks like the Loose Threads will keep going.
Regular meeting from 4-8pm.
Show and Tell/ Draw for a UFO Gift Certificate Winner:
