There's a restaurant within walking-distance for lunch and/or snacks. Supper???
So what do you think?
Last year Rob brought a Wanzer machine and it was really interesting. So building upon that tradition, I thought this year I could display Singer machines with centennial badges (I have more than 10 different machines/decals represented) or I could display machines with world's fair/special anniversary badges (I have more than 6 different machines). Which display would you like to see this year?
TOGA exchange blocks
6 1/2" block with chain stitch design
Use a dedicated chain stitching machine or any machine that has a chain stitch or spider attachment. Choose black fabric for the block and any thread as long as it shows up well on the fabric.
The design is also your choice.
Use a second 6 1/2" block (your color choice ) for the signature information.
Please mark your calendars and I'll see you in Bangor.

Arkansas TOGAis Oct 5-8, 2017, in Mena, Ar.
Thursday Oct 5 is a fabric shopping day at the Bargain Shack in Poteau.
We usually meet up in Mena and then carpool or caravan to Poteau which is just under an hour away in Oklahoma.
The Bargain Shack carries a nice selection of quilting cottons, as well as some garment and upholstery fabrics.
Friday through Sunday we work on and with the machines, including a few tailed types. We have a Yahoo group called Arkansas Treadlers & TOGA, and I am seeking those who want to do a few demos for the TOGA.
Accommodations range from campgrounds to motels and B&Bs.
