In the Spring of 2009, I organized an EGA Regional retreat (embroidery guild) for 40 people. I never would have been able to do it without my wonderful committee. I made these needle keeper kitties as a thank-you present for them.  I thought they would be "quick and easy" to make. Hah!  The cats are made from muslin. The fabric for the dresses came from my stash.  Each cat has a pink felt heart that holds a needle. They were a lot of work but were worth the effort. My committee ladies were very surprised!
