"We're Enchanted With Quilting!"
Following the March Membership Meeting, the FuNdraising Committee will host an in-person sew-in and demo. There will be craft kits available to work on - Jar Openers, Microwave Bowls, Small Wall Hangings…. Just bring your sewing machine, various colored threads, and basic tools.
You are also invited to participate in a Simplified Landscape Demo using the NMQA Night Magic Pattern as a jumping off point. Night Magic finishes at ~ 36” W x 40” L. Kathy McLaren will show a simplified landscape technique, with a discussion of balloon techniques, assembly, landscape, and quilting. No freezer paper or drawing supplies needed. If you are interested, you can purchase the NMQA Night Magic Pattern for $5.
There are two options for landscape fabric: use NMQA fabric or bring your own. If you use NMQA fabric, we request that your finished (or unfinished!) item be returned to the Fundraising Committee so it can be made available to sell.
If you bring your own fabrics, the item will be yours to keep. If you bring your own fabric, you'll need: 1 yd - Sky, 1/4 - 1/2 yard pieces of landscape type fabrics - mountain, grasses, dirt, water, etc. 1/2 yard needed for border, 1/4 yard for narrow sashing. Gradation Solids also work for this project.
Bring your sewing machine and basic tools, including a variety of colored threads.
And bring your lunch too!
