Here are some projects I've worked on in 2009, but certainly not all of them!

Most of the projects require only moderate skills and experience. Whatever your abilities and interests, there are plenty of project ideas to get you started and keep you busy.

AEC 2009
Belinda Burger created this year's AEC logo design. I put it on a bag so I'd have a place for my "stuff" at the show. It sewed out great! Unfortunately, Belinda was unable to attend this year, because she and her husband were in the process of moving. As usual, the Pajama Party was a blast! The pictures (left to right) are Denise and Clay, our friends Jean and Larry (Clay too), and Quirky Kim with Clay.
