Many THANKS to Evelyn for giving us a fun filled afternoon of exploring sewing friendship to bring us closer in shared experiences. We all left with a gift favor at our table and many of us with thoughtful gifts from our game and contests.  Thanks to our old and new CAB for their behind the scenes hard work. Thanks to Mary Jane and Jan for hosting our Halloween Costume Parade. Thanks to Helaine for her fantastic use of humour of presenting our 2018 CAB. The candy bars represented our qualities and responsibilities to a "T". 

We had an afternoon full of laughs and friendships at our Annual Meeting. Helaine introduced our 2018 CAB: Lou (President), Sandi (1VP), Evelyn ( 2VP), Donna (Secretary) and Paulette (Treasurer). Marie Gartley was member of the year. Check out all our photos with this link.

What is an NG? Its a Neighborhood Group!  

We are real people meeting in real buildings to sew real things. And we have a blast. So take a moment to step away from the world of virtual reality and mosey on down to your nearest NG. Better yet, bring a friend with you!
