Hey Everyone. Remember, our meeting this month will be a week early AND a half hour early. So . . . we’ll see you Tuesday, December 19th at 6:30 pm. This will be our Annual Christmas Potluck and gift exchange — so bring that favorite dish and one gift to exchange.
On July 29th (Saturday) we will be having our scrap quilt workshop. The design we voted on was Trail Mix. Here is the link to the pattern:
Download the pattern, print it out and get your fabric baggies labeled and put some scraps laying around your sewing area in them. Seriously, this quilt is a great way to clean up that ever rising stash of small scraps that you just hate to part with.
It’s time for our annual summer salad and dessert potluck – come, visit, relax and enjoy some great food. With the whirlwind of finishing up quilts for the show, we could all use a night of social interaction with those that share our passion. Come early, if you please, and help set up and get the potluck rolling. Besides our dinner, we are going to have a brief presentation by Sherry Klepfer, who is the local chapter coordinator for Linus Project in Iredell County.
Our program for June is a relaxing, sit back, let the profusion of color and design delight your creative juices as Pineapple Fabrics indulges us with their options. Pineapple Fabrics is a family owned company quite close to us in Archdale, NC. They specialize in precut and packaging color sets sing five fabrics to begin that journey of less stress in designing your project as well as saving you time and energy. Come enjoy the presentation of how their company was started and how they have expanded into the quilting market to make an impact!
