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
