Rug design champs!
Yes, DAFA came up the winner in the recent rug design competition sponsored by Vecco DIY Rug Decor products, bringing home a total of $7,000 for the guild treasury. A team of 25 DAFA artists made rugs of their own design and posted them to a Vecco Pinterest board, earning the first $2,000. Then when the DAFA Pinterest board earned more “Follows” than the boards of competing organizations, DAFA took home another $5,000. See pictures and learn all the fun details on the DAFA blog.

The general meeting begins at 6:45 p.m. During the 5:30 Mini-Workshop hour, Beth Swider will teach participants how to create Japanese-style Furoshiki knotted bags. Click for details.
DAFA “rock stars” in Houston
The Houston International Quilt Festival at the end of October found many DAFA members joining in the excitement. Several of us had work in the quilt exhibits, and others participated as vendors or as teachers. See the Houston story in the Rock Stars section of the DAFA website. President JoAnn Musso served as one of the judges of the wearables fashion show, Stitch in Time. She tells all about the adventure in her new President’s Message.
