This is the first of thirteen lines for the band sampler designed by the EAC executive for the membership!  This wonderful logo design was put forward by our EAC President, Beryl Burnett.  Very nicely done!

These sampler lines will be posted every two weeks for the enjoyment of all.  Please feel free to use as many of the sampler bands as you like in your Sampler, to leave any out that do not fit in with your own inspiration, and to add whatever designs of your own that you like.  Make this project your very own!

EAC is excited to see what you come up with as a finished Band Sampler and we will be looking forward to seeing the finished projects and sharing them with all EAC members. 


More on that later! 

Now get stitching and come back in two weeks to get the next three lines of the sampler!
