Thimbleweeds Fashion Show

Some of you may remember the days, oh so long ago, when I used to publish garment patterns. That ended back in the mid-1990s when I decided to focus on writing books and designing art quilts. For all pattern-makers, sample garments are essential. Over the years, the garments added up, resulting in an overly bulging closet, full of garments I no longer needed. So, I donated them to my friends at Thimbleweeds Quilters in Rio Rancho, my hometown.

My friend, Donna Barnitz, organized a fashion show for their January 2012 meeting and I stopped by to help with the commentary! Here are images of just a few of the garments, Red’s Duster Coat, Dreamweaver Jacket, Circle Skirt, and Scrap Wrap.

Following the fashion show, they initiated a silent auction in which members could bid on individual garments. The goal is to raise funds for the local 4-H group, for their sewing extravaganza.

The funds will be used to purchase Gingher scissors for each ‘winner’ that participates in the spring show! A very worthy cause!
