Quilters Day Out

Saturday January 18


 Stay tuned .. Future Dates for

Quilters Day Out

will be posted.

Karen is back with three new Quilters Day Out projects for 2020.

Our first Quilters Day Out will be Saturday, January 18.

The block is large and fun to do. You can use a layercake and background for a scrappy look or pull three fabrics from your stash and make each block the same for a more controlled look.  Six blocks plus sashing and a border will make a large baby quilt. Twelve blocks will make a twin. If you want to learn the block technique but don't want to commit to the quilt I will have block kits cut and ready for you to sew. These blocks will then be assembled into a community outreach quilt.  Cost is $5 to defray the cost of the room rental.  Signup at the December meeting or email Karen.

TAKING A CLASS - IMPORTANT THINGS TO KNOW AND DO!

We have had a great influx of new members and I've been fielding a lot of questions so I thought it might be timely to publish information on our classes and what a student should bring to class.
  1. Unless stated otherwise - your sewing machine in good working order.  All accessories (especially the power cord!) and your manual is also important.
  2. Basic sewing/quilting notions to include - needles (new machine and hand), scissors/snips,  rotary cutter, cutting mat, rulers, marking tools, pins, etc.
  3. Iron and ironing surface
  4. Utility power cord with multiple plug-ins.
When you sign up and pay for a class you will receive a supply list with all pertinent information from the instructor.  If you sign up at a meeting you will be handed a hard copy of the supply list.  If you sign up by email you can either pick up the hard copy at the next meeting or you can receive it via email.  Prior to class I try to email everyone with updates and another copy of the supply list but that is not guaranteed.  The supply list is NOT available on the web as it is proprietary property of the instructor and should only be available to those who have paid for the class.  I will always gladly email another list to you.

It is important that you read the supply list well in advance of class so that you can procure all of the required materials for a successful class.  If you have questions please contact the Guild Programs Coordinator directly, or through the "contact us" page, and we will contact the instructor.  It is not good policy to have many different people contacting the instructors.

Preparation is the key to having an enjoyable and successful class experience!!
