Thursday October 24 Meeting

Our October Meeting will Thursday Oct 24 at 6.30 pm. The meeting will be held in Room B.  We are so excited to have Kitty Wilking (IG Nightquilter) as our Guest Speaker! She was recently featured in the AQS magazine.

The lecture will be Meticulous Magic: The Many Faces of Fussy Cutting.  Explore the world of fussy cutting and see the many ways you can apply it to your projects to take your quilting to another level. Fussy cutting, or the practice of intentionally cutting a specific motif from a fabric design, is a fun technique that can be applied to any project. There are many different ways to add a touch of meticulous to your quilting projects, whether traditionally pieced, foundation paper pieced, or English paper pieced. Kitty will show examples of the many ways fussy cutting can be applied to quilting, will show ideas on how to make your own planning templates, and will share tips and tricks on successfully cutting, basting (if applicable), and accurately stitching your carefully cut fabrics so that you can use some meticulous magic to transform your next project

Cost of the Lecture will be $10 for non members (unless you are a workshop)
