We are replacing the stockings for soldiers sew-in with a sew-in for comfort quilt squares, neo-natal quilts, or making something for the quilt show boutique. Bring anything you would like to work on. Sewing is from 10:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. on Thursday, August 2nd. Lunch will be on your own or brown bag it. Come for a day of sewing and fellowship and stay as long as you like. There will be a business meeting and show & tell at the usual times.
Thursday, July 5th: DIY Patriotic Celebration of Quilting
Program at 1 and 7 pm
We all have created patriotic quilts, wall and table decorations that we display throughout the year on patriotic days. Since we already have many July 4th pieces out of storage, let’s share your favorites with each other today. Please bring your patriotic items for a special Show and Tell. Today’s program also includes a DIY patriotic pattern swap and a red, white and blue fabric exchange. We will be sitting at the round tables today. You bring some table decorations and we’ll provide the ice cream.
DIY instructions for July 5th:
- Bring favorite decorations
- Trade patriotic patterns
- Swap holiday fabrics
- Celebrate with your friends
We will still end our meeting with the regular Show and Tell.
