March 14,2016 Lori Buhler   English Paper Piecing

This will be a hands-on tutorial and trunk show all in one at our evening meeting.  Lori will be supplying some small kits of Hexies for each member attending.   She will talk us through paper piecing, so please bring hand sewing supplies, such as needle, thread, and scissors.

April 11, 2016     Members take the stage

There will be three options for this evening so there is something for everyone.  1) Looking for members to bring “the best gadget I ever bought” and take just 2 minutes to show and tell.  2) Several members have offered up showing a 10-minute technique.  If you have something, please let me know.  3)  A 50/50 fund raiser for Quilts for Kids.   Shirley Fuller will be bringing in her private stash of kits and books for sale.  Other members can also bring in items for re-sale.  We will do 50% of the income to you and 50% to Quilts for Kids.  

Be thinking about one or all three of these options to share your skills, ideas and stash
