Summer Highlights from the Marcus Crew

With Labor Day behind us and summer “officially” over, we thought we’d recap some of our favorite moments of the summer season, from big family events to culinary discoveries!  Enjoy…

Stephanie:  “Building sandcastles and leaving Island Beach state park at sunset with my hubby and good friends in our VW Thing”

Lisa: “I bought a new travel sewing machine (a Janome Jem Gold) for my Colorado mountain retreat. I chose to skip the Amazon route so I could support a local dealer, ending up at Paramus (NJ) Sewing Center (www.paramussewingcenter.net). The owner turned out to be the previous owner of the old Singer retail store  (remember those??) where I learned to sew at age 12!  So now I’m friends with all the ladies in the shop, and I’ve been invited back for one of their impromptu sip ‘n sews.  Amazon never invites me for cocktails...I also got excellent service a great price  ; )”JanomeJem

Brandy:  “I discovered that you can add raw steel -cut oats to your green smoothies, making it more filling by adding calories and fiber. Not to mention more nutritious. I use spinach in my green smoothies. As we all know, dark leafy greens are some of the most nutrient dense foods you can consume.”

Regina:   “I gave my niece a bridal shower gift of a beautiful short nightgown and wrap robe.  Instead of wrapping it, I made a fancy hanger, stitching lace to create a garment bag that became part of the gift.  It was a hit and she loved it!  Shown here are the bride, Courtney, with her niece, Susie.”

Indra:  More wedding news!  Indra & family celebrated her son’s wedding on 7/22/16 in Queens, NY. Shown here standing are Indra, her husband, their daughter, and (seated) their son with his beautiful bride. “The back drops were done with metallic tulle and satin backing, making the back drops was one of the many chores given to me; now my friends and family claim I am the queen of sewing – I learned to sew at age 14 in high school.”

We hope you’ve all enjoyed some great memorable moments this summer, too.  And now, onto some Great Autumn Quilting  ; )

  2. Gee, my calendar sites September 22nd as the Autumnal Equinox, and with hot, hot, hot, and humid weather, it’s still summer here in NH. Can’t wait for snow and winter’s chill to be under my warm quilts! Vic in NH
