This Month's Happenings
JANUARY 19, 2023
The daytime program will be a Fidget Quilt Workshop with demonstrations. Noon to 6pm. Stay for an hour or all day.
We will have a few sewing machines set up to use but please bring basic sewing supplies and your machine if you want. We will have sew on your own kits or bring one you have started and/or team up for an assembly line so we can crank them out! Our goal is to make 54 fidget quilts to complete our order! This is a great way to earn points and it makes the guild money. The Assisted Living facility pays us $25 for each fidget quilt. Just think of the wonderful impact this has on the residents (and staff, too!)!
There will be several demos on making a pocket, envelope method, secure attachments, safety and machine quilting.
