Come share a morning of  creativity
 Quilters meet in member's homes on the fourth
 Thursday of the month at 9:30am until noon.
 Any member, novice or expert, is welcome.   

Our meetings have a combined focus, we share our work, motivate each other, 
 problem solve together and provide opportunities to learn something new. 
 Those opportunities have included structured hands-on classes, such as 
paper-piecing, fabric dying or flying geese on a curve; or demonstrations, such as, using scraps for a new block design, or a new cutting technique, sewing circles,  stack and slash, redwork and Sashiko.  

This year, the group has decided to build on last years' block discussions to make a sampler quilt to donate. Each quilter will select a block structure, and make one block to donate and one or more to keep for a personal project.  One block will be part of a quilt to donate to the Children's Hospital.  Programs will focus on how to use blocks in projects other than quilts, i.e.  runners, wall hangings, bags. As always, your participation is at your discretion and comfort level.  Happy Quilting.
