Program:  Sharon shared what they had learned in the class they took from Anne Bright and
provided hands on training for the group.  Sue shared many stencil marking tricks with chalks,
pens, corn starch and different types of papers and plastics. Ways to show the customer how the
actual quilting will look on their block by tracing the quilting pattern on heavy clear plastic was very
helpful.  (Submitted by Nora Brant)

Program: Nancy started our meeting with a fashion show of a inspirational sweatshirt jacket made
on a domestic machine by a friend.  The jacket was made of three layers of scrap squares of fabric,
raw-edge appliqued to the base sweatshirt.  Our duty was to duplicate it on the longarm.  Nancy
used a lining to baste the sweatshirt to, and cut lots of scraps up for us to play with!  It was alot
of fun for all.  Customers and schedules were discussed, and we had a demo of the newest ruler -
an aid to adding your binding on the longarm - by Sue.  Thanks to Janice for the great photos and
to Nancy for the wonderful food!  Bobbi, Kathryn, and Nancy all had show and tell, as well.  Great
fellowship was had by all.   (Submitted by Linda Miller)
Meeting THREE
Date:  Saturday, November 11
Time:   11:00 am
Hostess:  Jodi Robinson
Location:   Jodi Robinson's studio, Enon Valley, PA
Attendees:  Jan DeZee, Sharon Gostlin, Jackie Gritziner, Sue Palumbo, Jodi Robinson
Program:   Some of the threads we use were discussed.  We also talked about business and
customers.  The OLAQ group is great because everyone is so willing to share ideas.  For Show &
Tell, we were all impressed with Jodi's beautiful jacket made of  denim with a wool batt and  
flannel lining.   The pattern is  The Wild Onion Jacket by Susan Conn Italo.
Jodie did a fantastic job on her demo of allover fillers including lots of fabulous feathers.  She
showed how to mark across your quilt and use the lines as a guide.  You can use diagonal lines,
curves, and circles. It's a great  alternative to doing pantograph patterns.    We learned some
great ideas and had an enjoyable time, as did Zeke (Jodi's dog).  Thanks to Jodi for a yummy
lunch and all the info and sharing.    (Submitted by Jan DeZee)
