A (snowy) month has passed and it's time for our monthly meeting.

Another month has passed and this Wednesday, March 1 is our monthly meeting at 7:00pm.

Carly will demonstrate quilt-as-you-go, we will have a show/share/chat about this weekend's Krista Hennebury workshops.  

We have planned a magazine challenge (no need to bring anything but your curiosity) and you can sign up for the next sew-in which is on Saturday, March 25.

There will be an update on the Spring postcard challenge.

Bring your show and share to let us know what you have been doing - always great to see.

Everyone welcome.

See you on Wednesday!

What a weekend!

This was the weekend that Krista Hennebury taught us how to "Speed Date with Improv" and the "Square Peg Round Hole" with the elusive scant 1/4 inch.

It was a great weekend of learning to let go of our piecing and cutting inhibitions as well as becoming very precise with the scant 1/4 inch. For some of us it was the first time that a block actually ended up at the dimension required.

See the happy faces as we learned, laughed, made mistakes and laughed some more. 

Thanks you Krista and everyone that participated in the workshops.

Mary, happy with her improv!

Pressing is important!
