We are very sorry to inform you that we will need to reschedule the Angela Pingel workshop, originally scheduled for September 24.  Angela has an unavoidable conflict requiring her to cancel.  However, we still have the library from 9 to 4:45  that day.  So we are planning a regular meeting and then a special demo/hands on sewing. 

Please stay tuned for detail. More to come soon.

August Online Activity

This month let's do a quick, simple block that will look amazing when assembled! Let's follow Twiggy and Opal's directions for a Shadow Block.

Let's take Jayne's block one step further and add a white sashing to the top and left side. At the end of her tutorial, we are left with a 5 3/4" square. Let's add a 1 1/4" strip of white to the sides that don't have the grey shadow strips, to end up with a 6 1/2" square (will be 6" finished)

Please use a bright modern "charm" (5") square for the center square, a medium-to-light grey for the "shadow" and white for the corner block and sashing.

Here are rules for submission and winning the block drawing at our September 2016 meeting
