From the national scene, Suzi Parron will lecture and give a workshop on barn quilt painting in August; Karen Eckmeier will lecture and conduct a workshop on Happy Villages in September. So don’t miss a meeting or a workshop, renew your membership today! Click here for a Membership Formmemapp18.pdf or click the Membership link on the right for more details.
2018 - Every month you will have an opportunity to freshen up your stash! This is a fun activity for those who wish to participate. Simply bring a fat quarter, 18” x 22”, and receive a ticket for each fat quarter (yes, you can bring more than one!) that follows the theme for the month. There will be a drawing before the end of the night, and the winner takes home all of the fat quarters that are brought to the meeting.
Thank you for all for all of the ideas that were suggested for this upcoming year! Check out September, we are trying something new!
2 ½ inch Strip Themes for 2018
I have taken your suggestions and incorporated them into this year’s drawings! You asked to have two color choices or a theme to be assigned to each month and you will see that there are many chances to participate. Simply bring a 2 ½ inch strip x width of fabric, and receive a ticket for each strip (yes, you can bring more than one!) that follows the theme for the month. There will be a drawing before the end of the night, and the winner takes home all of the strips that are brought to the meeting. Thank you for all for all of the ideas that were suggested for this upcoming year!
