Mini Quilt Workshop

On February 22nd, we have an awesome opportunity to make mini-quilts with our speaker from the night before, Phyllis Thornton. Here are some really great things about this workshop:

  • Bring only basic supplies – no fabrics to choose and cut ahead of time
  • Pattern and fabric will be provided
  • You will get to select your own project from about 75 or more possibilities
  • Choose the level of difficulty you’re comfortable with
  • Get tips for making minis from Phyllis
  • Enjoy the day in the company of friends

All this for the low price of only $30 for guild members!  Sign up at the January meeting.

Sewing Room Cleanup Sale

Members of the FWQG are ready to de-stash! We all know that quilters and sewers tend to build up impressive stashes, and sometimes they just have to let some of it go. This is your opportunity to pick up one sewer’s “Trash” and turn it into your “Treasure.” All items on sale will be quilting or sewing related. March 21.

Panel Palooza!

Do pre-printed fabric panels catch your eye, but you’re just not sure what to do with them? Patti Carey from Patti’s Last Resort will share ideas for making quilts with those beautiful panels. Whether it’s adding simple borders to a cute novelty panel, or using the panel as a focus for a more intricate layout, you’ll get plenty of inspiration.

If you have some quilts you have made from panels, please bring them for show and tell. This month’s meeting is Tuesday, January 17.
