Programs

The following is snapshot of what our Programs team has put together so far for the year.

Mark your calendar now for these upcoming events so you don’t miss any of the fun.

Charity Quilt Block Pattern for 2021

In years past we have picked a particular designer’s quilt pattern to use for our guild’s effort to put charity quilts into our local community. This year we have selected a block put out by the MQG called The Corner Block.

The individual block with some options of layout.

In the past we have held charity open sew days in person to work on these projects. Now we ask you to go the website and login to retrieve the free pattern and create a quilt in your own design, to support our local charities.

You can submit a complete quilt or just a quilt top. We have batting and backing fabric available to help you finish your quilt.

Sign up today so you can be part of the fun reveal next fall!
Decide your own palate!

Programs also asked us to come up with our 21 Crafty Goals for 2021. It’s never to late to start, so begin your list today. Include things you’d like to accomplish, try, add or delete in all your crafting adventures. Then you can share them with us at our meetings throughout the coming year.

Show & Tell

Thanks to all for another great meeting!
