Reminding you of our upcoming meeting this Saturday, August 17th, from 1:30-4:30 at Capital Quilts, 15926 Luanne Drive, Gaithersburg, MD 20877.
We'll start with a paper piecing tutorial from Meli (Thanks, Meli!) after which we will hand out block kits to any who would like to volunteer to assemble them at home for September's charity sewing event.
There has been talk of a block raffle on Flickr for October's meeting, so I'd like to finalize our color/pattern choices for that, and then of course there will be time for sewing and socializing and shopping!
There is room at Capital Quilts for about 12 of us to bring sewing machine projects. If you would like to bring your machine, I encourage you to do so and make the best use of your meeting time, but please drop me an email to sign up for a machine slot. That way you won't be disappointed if you shlepp all your supplies to the meeting and you end up without a space.
Current members should have paid their dues or should come prepared to do so at the meeting. ($40, cash, check, or PayPal) New members are always welcome and may attend 2 meetings before deciding to join. If you are planning on requesting a scholarship, you should contact Heather before the meeting.
Can't wait to see everyone! Comment if you're coming and feel free to bring snacks! (CQ already has cutting/pressing stations for our use.)
