EUREKA – Carol Luginbuhl of Roanoke will demonstrate making a flower from the skinny end of a silk tie at the October 17 meeting of the Woodford County Sewing Guild. Everyone in attendance will try her hand at constructing a flower which they will take home with them. All materials will be supplied free of charge. The meeting will begin at 7:00 PM at the Farm Bureau Building, 117 W. Center Street in Eureka (across the street from Pizza Hut). All Sewing Guild meetings are free and open to the public.
Sewing women have always sought intriguing ways to use the beautiful silks in men’s ties. Many a ‘crazy quilt’ contains pieces from ties, and more creative sewers have used ties for making everything from purses to skirts to table covers. Tell someone you are working with ties, and you will be inundated with them, most coming from widows who saved their husband’s ties and don’t know what to do with them.
Carol Luginbuhl is the current president of the Peoria Chapter of the American Sewing Guild (ASG). Members of the ASG are free to attend any neighborhood group meeting anywhere in the country. Many members attend meetings in Florida or Arizona during the winters and then bring back new ideas to local groups. To learn more about the ASG, visit www.peoriaasg.org.
The Woodford County Sewing Guild is a neighborhood group of the Peoria Chapter of the American Sewing Guild. Meeting the third Thursday of each month, the group examines a specific topic and shares laughter and stories in a ‘show and tell’ session. The November 21 meeting will be a make-it-and-take-it Christmas ornament.
