April 21: Fun Day is coming!
Sign-ups begin this month and continue till February 16th for the fourth biennial Fun Day scheduled for Tuesday, April 21, 2015. This year’s workshop is all about the fun of fabric and getting to piece a quilt top in a day. For just $60 the board will select (based on your input) and pre-cut all the 5 yards of new fabric for your fun-filled day of sewing. You won’t know the pattern ahead of time, but you will go home with a 60x70 inch quilt top that all you had to do is sew together! And because quilting is so much about the fabric, we’re opening the list of possibilities from which participants can choose. Consider selecting from the following fabric designers: Kaffe Fassett, Laurel Birch, Jo Morton, or Paula Nadelstern. Or how about one of these themes: batiks, birds, chickens, florals, oriental, patriotic, or western. Because color is so very important, your input will certainly be considered. You might even want to go with something like black and white and _______? The class is limited to 20 participants. See the program chairs Sandie Allen and Lois Fox, or any MTQG board member.
More information on upcoming programs for 2015 may be found on the Programs page.
We will have a class in making placemats, presented by Lorraine Owen. The sign-up sheet will be at the ECHOS table in January
Remember, there are no fees for these classes –they are presented to us by the skillful members of our own Guild. So just come and get lots of new ideas and learn some interesting tips and quilting skills.
For more workshop information, please see the ECHOS page!
