April Meeting Date - Friday, April 19th

This month we will have a "Cutting Extravaganza" at our Quilts of Valor meeting.   We have lots of bundles of fabrics already identified as to their best use and partially prepared to cut into various size squares, bindings and borders.  Come and bring your cutting mats and favorite rotary cutting tool.

We will also need to work on some of our on-going projects, like the following:

§         Taking care of what will be coming back in:
¨       Quilted quilts - these will need to have bindings machine sewn on - then the bindings hand sewn – then the labels hand sewn
¨       Quilt tops – these will need to have backings ironed and sewn so they can be sent off to be quilted
¨       Blocks made from kits – these will need to be sorted into sets for tops
§         Taking care of our stash of block kits:
¨       Making up kits for “A” and B” block kits

So, you say you’ve never been to a Quilts of Valor meeting?  Well, you are very welcome to join us and we’ll supply the tools and show you how to cut, or you can choose another task from one of the above or just join us and see what we are all about.

We will meet as usual at the Crafty Threads Quilt Shop on Racetrack Rd in Tampa on Friday, April 19th from 10:00 – 2:00.  Everyone is invited – no sewing skills required.
