2020 Birthday Club

We will be running our guild birthday club again this upcoming year. Birthday club sign ups will be taking place at the August and September guild meetings. At the October meeting, you will receive your group members information and their FQ requests. You will bring back your group’s FQs in a designated bag at the November meeting. Then, on your birthday month in 2020, you’ll receive a bag of FQs from each member of your group!

If you wish to join in on the birthday club, you will just need to fill out the short form at a guild meeting. As part of the birthday club, you will be in a group of 12 individuals and on your birthday month, you will receive a bag of fat quarters based on your indicated likes from the sign up form.

*It’s fun and easy – shop your stash or purchase to meet your members wishes, and of course keep it modern.*

Does the idea of sewing curves scare the heck out of you? Don’t let it! In this class, students will learn different methods of sewing curves and lots of tips and tricks that will make it FUN and EASY! We’ll talk about how to square up blocks and sew them together with beautiful matching points. Students will leave addicted to curves wanting to make all the quilts. These blocks are some of the ones we will learn how to make!

Jen will also be teaching a hand sewing class, Curvlets on Sunday, September 15th from 11:00-3:00 at Quilt in a Day. The cost of this class is $50 and does not include lunch.

Curvlets Class Description: Slow down, take a seat, quiet your mind and start stitching. In this curvy hand sewing class you’ll learn how to prep your project, use templates for marking, and tips and tricks on cutting sewing. We’ll be working in small scale, 1 1⁄2”, but if you’d like to go bigger the technique is the same and will be accommodated. You’ll leave this class in love with hand sewing and eager to bring it with you everywhere!
