Sew and Tell
In response to the wildfires occurring in California, several organizations are collecting quilts to be given to those effected by the wildfires. Eternity Quilt Events is collecting quilts to be donated to those impacted by the Camp Fire in Northern California. Sewing Arts Center in Santa Monica is also collecting quilts that will be donated to those impacted by the Camp Fire as well as those impacted in Southern California by the Woolsey Fire.
We will be collecting quilt donations at this Sunday’s (11/25) sew-in at Quilt in a Day, as well as at our holiday party on 12/2 that will be sent off to help with these relief efforts. Quilts can be dropped off with Kristyn at these two events and if you have any further questions, please email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
More information about the Eternity Quilts Effort can be found here.
Come and join us this Sunday at Quilt in a Day for our end of month sew-in. November 25 from 11-4. Hope to see you there!
This is just a reminder that we will not have a general meeting in December, since we have our Holiday party!
Have a fantastic holiday season, and a safe and Happy New Year! See you on January 13, 2019!
Libs Elliott has shared her supply list for those enrolled in the December 9th workshop. The workshop begins at 9am at Quilt in a Day and lunch is provided!
We will be playing a fun game at the holiday party! You can win A BAJILLION Fat Quarters. It’s really easy, and TRUST ME. You want to play.
To play, all you have to do is bring two sets of Fat Quarters (Quilt store quality, please).
