As you may be aware, Mary W, Mibsie, and Sharon R got together to make hospital gowns for Operation Smile. After surgery to fix their cleft palate, the children are given a Smile Bag. Our notion for September are items that would go into these Smile Bags. We hope this gives you a heads up and time to go shopping... I included the directions for sewing the Smile bags if you would like to make one or more... that would count as a notion (for a ticket for the draw for a fat quarter)

I am looking to notify the members of your London guild about an upcoming workshop in London on June 15th at Stache Fabric and Notions in downtown London (211 King St.).
- Half day workshop (5-6 hours or so including break) starting at 9:30AM
- Batik and batting provided
- Backing fabric must be brought or bought
- Work through making the table runner + 1 placemat, then finished on their own time
I have included the workshop poster and some pictures of a sample project. If there is any way that you could direct me to a place where I could submit a poster, or allow me to post in your Facebook group to your members I would very much appreciate it!
