March Meeting Date - Friday, March 15th

We are planning an exciting Quilts of Valor meeting this month – and it’s only one week away!  My, how times flies.  We will have time for some of our normal activities (see below) and then we will have a special demonstration of an easy  Quilt-As-You-Go technique.  You won’t want to miss this meeting!

We will meet as usual at the Crafty Threads Quilt Shop on Racetrack Rd on Friday, March 15th at 10:00.  Everyone is welcome to attend – no sewing skills required.

Ø      We will be having some quilt tops and some quilted quilts coming in, so we will need to:
Ø      Iron and prepare a few backings,
Ø      Machine sew on bindings of quilted quilts,
Ø      Hand sew bindings if time permits,
Ø      Cut fabrics into blocks for kits including light colors,
Ø      Make up more block kits to keep the basket full,
Ø      Prepare labels for at least 2 quilts,
Ø      Possibly sew rows for a quilt top,
Ø      And that ever popular category – Misc!

When we stop for our lunch/snack break, we will reconfigure the tables and Pat will begin the QAYG presentation using a serger.  This technique is just as easy when using a sewing machine, so we expect you will want to try it yourself no matter what machine you use!  We will have batting available if you want to give it a go.

Circle March 15th on the calendar right now … see you there!
