Ready for some fun? Upcoming events!

October Meeting

Date/Time/Place - To Be Determined ASAP
The October meeting will be held at a different location due to the library needing the space for early voting.  Complete details will be coming shortly.

October Swap
The holidays are just around the corner, so the October swap will RED & GREEN FAT QUARTERS.  To participate in the swap bring:

     1 Fat quarter that is mostly RED
     1 Fat quarter that is mostly GREEN

The fabric does NOT need to be holiday themed but should be "modern" and read as mostly red or mostly green.

October BOM
The block-of-the-months are a fun way to try different online blocks and tutorials.  Try your hand at this month's BOM and let's have a great collection for the drawing.  Bring 1 block for 1 chance to win, 2 blocks for 2 chances...

The block this month is Broken Spiderweb and the tutorial can be found here at House of A La Mode.  Our color theme this month:  Bright & scrappy with a light colored center.
