It was great to have so many new faces at the meeting last night!
Just a reminder that dues are $20/year. And a $1 donation for every meeting to be given to Gloria Sews for use of her space — that’s something that can be paid all up front for $12 if you prefer.
We voted to purchase irons & ironing boards to be used during our sit-n-sew.
Show & Tell:
We had a discussion about the differences between Charm Packs, Jelly Rolls, and Layer Cakes. If you are interested in learning more about precuts, feel free to visit http://www.modabakeshop.com
Allie Johnson did a long-arm demo for the group. She went over a few important tips when submitting a quilt to be quilted on the long-arm machine and showed us how it all worked.
After the meeting, Rosie Summers presented a log cabin heart mini-quilt.
– Our next meeting will be March 9th @ 6:30pm
– The sit-n-sew will be a modern blue ridge mountain block — kits will be available to purchase. More info to come prior to the meeting.
– We are looking at a potential sewing retreat on a Sunday in May to be held at a farm in Roaring River. More to come on that as well.
