Anne Stonecipher, 2022 SaddleBrooke Women’s Golf Association (SBWGA) President, started sewing when she was just 10 years old, making doll clothes for her younger sister. She has loved sewing ever since. She was lucky enough to have a wonderful junior high school sewing teacher. The 8th grade girls made shirtwaist dresses with a color, set-in sleeves, side zipper, gathered skirt, and a button front.

She minored in home economics in college but took only one sewing class. During her teaching career, Ann spent summers sewing clothes for the next school year. At that time, it saved a lot of money. She remembers sewing away while watching the Watergate hearings.

Ann always said she would take up quilting when she retired, and only two months after moving to SaddleBrooke, she attended the quilt show put on by our local quilting club. She was hooked and soon thereafter bought a new sewing machine. She then added an embroidery attachment to make attractive labels for her quilts.

She was part of the initiative to make masks for SaddleBrooke residents in 2019 and really enjoys sewing and embroidering for others. She’s had fun this year making kitchen towels with golf motifs to raffle off at the SBWGA general monthly meetings.

Sept. 20 is the annual LAGOS event. LAGOS is the oldest standing tournament in SaddleBrooke. This event combines ladies from the SBWGA-18 and SBWGA-9 golf groups. It is a nine-hole event followed by lunch and social time. Sign-up is located on the Pro shop bulletin board.

Our sponsors for September are Windows of Greater Tucson, Northridge Dental, and First Inspection. Thank you for supporting our ladies golf events.
