Be sure to bring a chair, a name tag, your bunting and something to show and tell!
See you then.
Thank you to Beth Rowan who shared with us her Quilt Con demo, Sew Many Substrates. We loved learning about how to use other fabrics besides quilting cottons in our projects. We also loved all the gorgeous samples.
We also had a special visitor, Janita’s sister, Berene (happy sew lucky) if you want to add her to your instagram accounts and be inspired.) She graciously brought some door prizes with her. Lucky Us.
As always we had amazing Show and tell from our very talented guild members. And quite a few charity quilts were added to be given away.
Spring is in the air and what better way to celebrate than with bright and lovely bunting!
This month we’re swapping whimsical bunting flags to decorate our space with some spring inspiration.
– Use the tutorial found here at Pink Stitches to create your bunting flags
– Minimum of 10 triangles/flags on your bunting
– Flags can be any type of fabric
– Leave enough ribbon/trim at each end of the bunting to hang the banner (bias tape also works in place of ribbon)
– Use spring colors/patterns/theme
– Bring your bunting to the April guild meeting and you’ll go home with a bunting of your own
Just a friendly reminder that we have a meeting this Thursday at 7PM at Rock Paper Scissors in Montclair.
Bring a chair, a name tag and something to show and tell!
We have announcements, a new swap to introduce for April, and a program by popular demand!
We are very lucky that Beth Rowan of Rock Paper Scissors is going to give us her demo from Quiltcon called “Sew Many Substrates.” (We were supposed to get a sneak peek in January before we got snowed out!) She’ll show us samples of quilts made from substrates like voile and jersey knit, and pass along some tips on how she made them. Get there early for good seats!
See you then!
