October 14th Program


Open “Sew”cial

October will bring all in-house activities.  After the Flying Geese workshop with our own Sue Rasmussen on Sunday, October 13, our Monday October 14 evening’s program will be a Community “Sew”cial.  With the help of the Veterans project and Quilters for Others, we will cut fabric hearts for pillows.  If you took home the heart pattern at the September meeting and have the hearts sewn, bring them to the meeting and we’ll have the stuffing to finish them.  

Bring your scissors and any fabric at is approximately 14″ square.  Using the heart pattern available at the meeting, you can trace and cut!  There will also be quilt tops from Quilters for Others that need to be tied.  Never tied a quilt before?  Now’s your chance to try something new.  They will provide the batting and backing.  We provide the willing hands.  Please bring needles, curved or straight, to do the tying. Jan Lauritzen says Dritz 30-50 quilters curved hand needles work well. Or, if you prefer, take a quilt home to finish.

As you all know lighting in the hall is not the best.  If you have any battery operated LED lights, please bring them along with scissors and sewing needles.  Many hands make light work.  See you in October.
