Plans Plans Plans!

Hello Quilting Peeps!

We had a delightful meeting on Wednesday, and got a lot of planning for future meetings and events done. We got to see the results of our “Make Something Out Of Something You Normally Wouldn’t Make Something Out Of” and got to see some awesome fabric bowls and an Origami Kimono quilt. We also got to see show and tell, play some games, and had a demo on couching yarn in spirals.

We are going to be having a quilting day at Westmount Community League at some point in November: thanks to Teresa for organizing this! The date will be announced very soon! In the meantime, we are exchanging some community involvement for the quilting space there, so if you have ideas let us know! 

Our challenges for the upcoming month are:

1) The Ugly Fabric Challenge: Make something out of the ugliest fabric in your stash, see if you can’t make it into something beautiful!

2) The Challenge Challenge: Come up with a challenge that can be used in the future!

We also have dates and demo’s for our upcoming meetings!

Tuesday November 9th, Demo TBA

Wednesday January 12th, Demo by Sacha on Applique

Wednesday February 9th, Demo on by Karen on Fabric bleaching without bleach

Wednesday March 9th, Demo by Teresa on Fabric Baskets

Wednesday April 13th, Demo by Darlene on Fabric painting with Stencils

Wednesday  May 11th, Demo TBA

One week until the next meeting!

Hello all!! 

I thought that I would just sent out a quick reminder that our next meeting is October 20 at 7:00, Quilters Dream North!

Some of our members have been inquiring about various community leagues for us to sew in, so we will definitely be making some decisions about where and when we all want to sew together!

Don’t forget this months challenge- to make something out of something you normally wouldn’t make something out of. Wether that is a quilt out of old shirts, a bag out of mens ties, or whatever else your creative minds have come up with. If you worked on the challenge, but can’t make it to the meeting, email your pictures, or post them to our flickr page! We still want to see what you are making!

Bring your other show and tell too! We all want to know what you have been working on for the past month!

If anyone wants to demo a technique please email me! Or, is there anything you find interesting and would like a demo on? Email that too, or post on our blogs or forum!

At any rate, I’ll talk to you all soon! 

Happy Quilting

Kathleen.
