The July Chapter Sewing Challenge
If you like to decorate your yard with summer flowers, bird baths, and cute statues, you may also choose a seasonal garden flag. These flags generally welcome guests to your home or garden.
Have you ever made a garden flag? Have you always wanted to make one? Well, now’s your
chance. Your July sewing challenge is to make a personalized garden flag. It can be
embroidered or appliqued. It is your creation. Send photos of your completed project to Sue
Knudsen to be placed on our chapter Facebook page. Please send me a photo. I would like to
write a little feature article about your flag for the August bulletin.
