January Meeting

Hey Friends!

We are planning ahead for the new year and want to hear from you about what topics you would like to learn more about.

A few suggestions I've received are:

  • hexies (english paper piecing) 
  • machine binding
  • zippered pouches
  • thread school (exploring the various types, brands and uses) 
  • quilt block demos (Y seams, 10 minute blocks, disappearing 9 patch) 
  • challenge modern BOM
  • pattern workshop
  • EQ / Quilt Pro lesson
  • basting techniques
We are looking for someone to teach a mini lesson on hand quilting for our January meeting. If you can hand quilt and would like to share your knowledge,  please contact me ASAP!

If you have other suggestions or just want to chime in on the ones above, please let your voice be heard! I would love to know what you are interested in. Sign ups for teaching the mini workshops and topics above will be available at the January meeting.

Have you picked out your pink OR red fabric for the fat quarter swap in January? Bring your two fat quarters to our next meeting for some fun swapping. Modern, quilt-shop quality fabric please.

Mark your calendar for our next Sew-In Saturday, February 18 from noon-4:00. We will be bringing our machines, snacks and projects to complete. We'll also put together our two charity quilts using the habitat blocks. I hope everyone will join us!

See you soon!

  1. I would love a lesson about designing your quilt. I have photoshop that I use to scrapbook, but I haven't tried to design a quilt on it. I think I was talking to Amanda at the last sew-in about it and that's what she does. I just think that's a great idea!
