The challenge is to make something using recycled materials. It can be fabric, jars, tins, boxes, paper, clothes, anything you like, but something reused to make a small gift, if doing for a swap. If you would like to get involved, you have until 28th of June to add your name. By the beginning of July, I will give sort out who will be sending to who and you have until the end of July to send out your item. (Please note, you will need to be a group member to participate.)
There is also a separate giveaway, all the details are in the pinned post in the group. There are two aprons made from shirts, so there will be two winners.
This fabulous card was made by Teri in our hexagon swap. You immediately see the hexagon pattern on the paper but have you noticed the flowers? They are hexagon shaped too. I love it. Would you like to know how to do it? I'm very happy to say that Teri will be doing a demo for us very soon.

This video shows how to clean under the needle plate, it's not as scary as it sounds. Why not do yours this weekend?
