Stitching in Public

Finally, some wonderful weather on a Thursday! Today, my quilt guild, the Mountain Laurel Quilt Guild, is starting our summer sessions of "Stitching on the Green". 

Early spring on the Wellsboro Green

We started these informal gatherings last summer to coincide with the Wellsboro Growers' Market, which is located every Thursday afternoon one block from the Wellsboro Green. Guild members bring their hand-stitching projects (quilting/knitting/embroidery/whatever) and spend time enjoying the outdoors and oohing and aahing over each others' projects. After a couple of hours, we head on over to the market to pick up some delicious locally-grown and made goodies. I'll bet the strawberries sell out in minutes!

I don't have any quilting projects that need hand work, so I'm taking along a ruffle scarf WIP. I'm not a knitter, but I can knit these. Easy, peasy!

Sounds like a great idea...did you take any pix of you and your friends sewing in the park?

Anya - what fun!! That is such a lovely idea and the little park in Wellsboro is so charming.

What a great idea. I'm sure passers-by enjoy seeing all of you work, and it promotes quilting (or knitting). Very nice. enjoy

I'm sorry I have to miss out on the fun this week. Maybe next week...
