I was thrilled to be invited to the Heritage Quilters of the Hudson Palisades 30th anniversary party! After a morning of classes, where two of my instructors, Beth Jones and Pam Capen taught, they had a delicious luncheon. Marion Piehler, Boots Breden and Mary Kennedy - 3 of the charter members, were present and shared their memories of the guilds humble beginnings. Long time member, Rachel Kaufman, shared a display of all her antique notions and sewing machines. Very cool! It was so good to see this event well attended.Kudos to the ladies who organized the event...thier favors of quilted wallets and fabric cupcakes were adorable! I have in my heart a soft spot for the Heritage Quilter as that is where I learned all about quilting! I wish them another 30 + years! Happy Anniversary!

Despite the torrential rain we had a great turn out for a rainy morning at 8:30 am! The other highlight was that several ladies had their quilts done from last month! Way to go! This month the quilters were treated to Pumpkin Pecan waffles. Delicious! They also recieved a pattern by the same name! Next Breakfast Club meeting is Saturday, Nov. 14 at 8:30 am. Why not join us for breakfast, enjoy the demo and then sit and sew the day away! Next month: Mexican Fiestas Eggs and pattern.
Didi's Eggs Benedict
Linda's baby sized portion!
More waffles anyone?
This month's pattern: Pumpkin and Pecan Waffles!
