We are very grateful to all who have participated in this endeavor in the past. Hundreds of quilts have been given to people who really need them over the years.
The next Sewing Club meetings will be held Saturday, February 2nd at 10 a.m.; and Tuesday, February 5th at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. Jamie and Pam will demonstrate special projects and techniques using mostly easy patterns and simple notions, and will also show a variety of things that can be done on our machines. Club members, your reservation for your preferred time helps us plan for seating and refreshments. Feel free to bring your show-and-tell items, as we are all inspired by what you are doing, too.
The featured Class is Easy 9 Patch Quilt. This is good for beginners as well as more experienced quilters. Techniques include rotary cutting, joining pieces with a 1/4" seam, working with different layouts, and seaming blocks together.
