Fall 2014

    WELL WITH THIS CRAZY MIXED UP WEATHER YEAR I THINK WE ARE HEADED INTO FALL. FROM WHAT I HEAR OUR FORECAST FOR WINTER IS NOT MUCH BETTER THAN LAST YEAR, SO BE PREPARED, THAT MEANS YOU SHOULD HAVE PROJECTS READY TO START OR FINISH SOME OF YOUR UFOS. READ AHEAD AND I THINK I CAN HELP WITH BOTH OF THOSE SITUATIONS.

SIMPLE WHATNOTS—SMALL WONDERS

    DESIGNER KIM DIEL HAS DESIGNED A GROUPING OF SMALL QUILTS THAT RANGE IN SIZE UP TO ABOUT 28” SQUARE. THIS SERIES WILL GO OVER A 6 MONTH TIME PERIOD WITH HER PATTERNS AS WELL AS A FEW OTHERS TO FOCUS ON SMALLER QUILTS. THIS IS A GREAT WAY TO TRY DIFFERENT TECHNIQUES OF PIECING, APPLIQUE, QUILTING BY HAND OR MACHINE, EVEN SOME EMBROIDERY, WE WILL TRY IT ALL FOR YOU TO FIND OUT WHAT YOU ENJOY DOING. KITS WILL BE OFFERED IF YOU SO CHOOSE. WE WILL MEET ON THE THIRD FRIDAY OF THE MONTH AT 1 PM, $30 FOR THE SIX MONTHS. CALL TO REGISTER AND JOIN THE FUN OF QUILTING. 723-1213

SHHHHH!!!! IT’S A MYSTERY

    I’M GAME IF YOU ARE. HERE ARE JUST A FEW OF THE CLUES THAT I CAN TELL YOU. THE KIT WILL BE IN KANSAS TROUBLE FABRICS, IT IS 60” X 70”, IS ALL PIECED BY MACHINE, WILL GO OVER A 5 MONTHS PREIOD. KIT AND FIRST CLUE WILL BE AVAILABLE ON LAST SATURDAY OF THE MONTH STARTING ON OCTOBER 25 WITH THE REST OF CLUES ON LAST SATURDAYS AS WELL. I CAN’T SAY MUCH MORE OTHER THAT IT IS BEAUTIFUL.

QUILTERS BUCKET LIST

    THIS IS SOMETHING WE ALL NEED TO TAKE A LOOK AT, BECAUSE ANY QUILTER, NEEDLEWORKER I’M SURE FALLS IN THIS… LET’S CALL IT BEHAVIOR. THIS INVOLVES PROJECTS THAT ARE UNFINISHED, OTHERWISE KNOWN AS UFO’S. I THNIK WE CAN HAVE SOME FUN WITH THIS AND GET SOME OF THOSE UFO’S DONE AND OFF THE TABLE. THE FIRST MEETING WILL BE ON WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 1 AT 1 PM. IT COSTS NOTHING TO JOIN OTHER THAN FOR YOU TO LIST 10 – 12 PROJECTS ON A PIECE OF PAPER AND TURN IT IN TO ME AND LETS SEE WHERE IT WILL TAKE YOU, AND HAVE SOME FUN DOING THEM. IT ALSO MEANS YOU MAY HAVE TO CLEAN THE SEWING ROOM, YOU KNOW GET ORGANIZED. HOW IT WORKS IS I WILL PULL A NUMBER ONCE A MONTH AND THAT PROJECT ON YOUR LIST WITH THAT NUMBER IS THE ONE YOU WORK ON, FINISH IT BEFORE THE NEXT MEETING AND YOUR NAME GOES IN THE DRAWING FOR FAT QUARTERS OR CHARM SQUARES. LET’S HAVE FUN WHILE FINISHING. HELLO, MY NAME IS SHARON AND I AM HERE TO WORK ON MY UFO BUCKET LIST!!!!! SEE YOU THEN. 10/1/14 1PM

A PATCHWORK YEAR

    SOON TO COME IN NOVEMBER WE WILL BE STARTING KATHY SCHMETZ NEW REDWORK BLOCK OF THE MONTH. DONE IN REDS AND CREAMS WITH EMBROIDERED BLOCKS THAT TIE IT ALL TOGETHER TO MAKE A BEAUTIFUL WALL HANGING. I HAVE MOST OF THE BLOCKS EMBROIDERED, SO STOP IN AND TAKE A PEAK. THERE IS ALSO A NEW WAY OF GETTING THE PATTEREN ON THE FABRIC, SO NO MORE TRACING, IT WORKS GREAT. MAY REGISTER AT ANY TIME, JUST GIVE ME A CALL. 723-1213.
