March 15, 2021, 6:00pm  Meeting: Virtual Visit to a Local Quilt Store--Cotton & Chocolate

We are excited to have local shop owner Marilyn Peterson from Cotton and Chocolate joining us. Her shop moved to the new location last year (address listed below) and is amazing with new inventory, new classes and a large classroom/meeting space. She will do a walkabout for us discussing her shop, new tools now available and quilting ideas. She will also demonstrate new rulers including

“Fold a Corner Clipper" for making snowballs, flying geese, and more!

 

Please join us for this informal, informative session.

New shop location:

WORKSHOPS

Workshop cost (unless otherwise stated): $45 members/$55 non-members

Zoom Workshop - Sat, March 20, 2021, 10:00am - 4:00pm (no cost)

Our Workshop this month will be our annual Philanthropy Sew-In. How easy it will be to sew from your home?  No lugging your machine and supplies to a meeting site! We thought it would be fun to have us all work on the same project together. Our group project will be the “Zig Zag” pattern; a simple and fast project that requires no matching of seams! You can sew one row, a whole quilt top or even a complete quilt. For every row you complete you will go into a drawing for fabric prizes and there will be a grand prize drawing for those who complete a quilt. Rows, tops or completed quilts should be sent (or dropped off) to Kathy Dobner before the April 19th meeting so we can do the drawing at the meeting.

  • Join us when you want and stay as long as you wish (you don’t have to arrive at 10 or stay all day).

  • This pattern requires 2 1/2” white strips and 5” squares.

  • Kathy Dobner will have kits available to make one row or you can use your own fabric. If you want a kit, please let Kathy know and she will make arrangements for you to have a contactless pick-up on her doorstep.

Free pattern provided to help support our philanthropy efforts. It will be in our weekly update email or contact Kathy Dobner (kdobner@yahoo.com) or Alison Rowe (alisonrr@yahoo.com) for a copy. The current recipients of our quilts are:

  • James Storehouse (quilts for kids in foster care)

  • Many Mansions (low-income housing)

 

Philanthropy has been an integral part of our Guild’s mission since it’s inception. Since we’ve been spending more time at home why not use some of that time to support those less fortunate in our community?  

 

Thank you!
