The response to the Girlfriends design has been overwhelming! Thank you!!
I have been asked for some variations, so there is now a design with 5 women along with the first design which has 4 women.
The design was inspired by my long time GFWC (General Federation of Women’s Club) friends and mentors, so yes, GFWC Girlfriends was designed as well.
And the design looks great on Aprons!
Pillows – $15.00, Aprons $12.00
Here are a few more color options.
Thank you again! Wendy
Girlfriends are the sisters we choose for ourselves! This is so true of my best friends.
They are family, and I cherish each of them!
This design is for those dear friends that are sisters, family!
Stitched on a cotton dish towel, and made into a pillow. The pillows sell for $15.00 each and are available in many color options. The design also looks great on an apron.

Toilet Paper. Yes, toilet paper. All jokes aside, these are a cute little gift item that will get the job done. They are for decoration (even though it is a real roll of toilet paper). Only the outer sheets are embroidered. The sayings are endless….BUTT here are a few:

Cleaning out and rearranging can be a daunting task. While straightening up my dresser, I realized that I do have many, many pins from my years participation in the General Federation of Woman’s Club both in North Carolina and Nationally (www.gfwc.org OR www.gfwcnc.org). So what to do with all of the pins? Make a quilted wall hanging and display them!
I started with two shirts to decide on the main colors. One from 2000-2002 when I served as the GFWC-NC Director of Junior Clubs, the other from 2012-2014 when I served as the GFWC-NC President. Add more fabric, using the puzzle piece pattern since our theme was all about “Connections”
Then I did “some” machine stippling.
Added the pins and a rod for hanging, and here it is 25 plus years of Clubwork all in one place.
Christmas is just around the corner, well sort of. Here are some of the new designs on sale today at the Main Oak Emporium, Mount Airy, or by contacting me for more information! Ho-Ho-Ho!!

After serving at the General Federation of Woman’s Club of North Carolina State President from 2012-2014, the 50 GFWC State Presidents formed a National Club: GFWC Laister’s Phoenix Firebirds. To celebrate, I embroidered a dishtowel with a Phoenix and our club name for each of the State Presidents, and an Apron for our 2012-2014 International President, Mary Ellen Laister.
Rather than use my towel as a towel. I made it into a pillow.
I took the finished Dishtowel, and added a few strips of ribbon.
Then folded the towel into thirds, using a inexpensive Travel Pillow to be stuffed inside, using an envelope type fold.
By sewing a seam about 1 3/4″ from each edge, the pillow then slips in the bottom of the envelope fold. You can slip stitch the bottom flap closed, add buttons as decorations, or just leave it as is. Mary Ellen Laister with her Apron and towel!
