2013 - 2014 Quilt-In and Share Our Skills Activities
Join your quilting sisters at a Saturday "Quilt-In" to learn new techniques, help make items to be sold at the Quilt Show’s Boutique, or get help on a difficult project. We provide, patterns, coffee, tea and snacks. We also have table risers to elevate tables to a comfortable position for pinning or basting your quilts. For new members, the Quilt-In is a great way to meet new people and form new friendships.
Quilt-Ins are held on the second Saturday of each month, at the West Dennis Graded School House in West Dennis. Doors open at 9:00 am and the workshop or demonstration starts at 10:00 am.
Saturday, September 14 - "New Member Tea"
Each year on the second Saturday in September, join us for the New Members Tea at the West Dennis Graded School House in West Dennis. In the morning we will be working on New Member name tags. Members are asked to contribute a sweet or savory dish for the 1:00 pm afternoon tea.
“Why did I buy this?” A discussion and demonstration of rulers and gadgets. Bring that item that you bought but forgot why or bring your favorite ruler or gadget and share what you can make with it. We will have lots of different items for you to discuss.
Please contact Diane H. McGuire with any questions or if you want to volunteer to help with the New Members Tea event.
Saturday, October 12 - "Needles and Pins and Thread, oh, my!"
Sample and charts of different pins and needles will show you how to use them. Lots of samples of decorative threads will be available for you to try. If you took the workshop on Victorian Crazy Patches this is a good time to try some decorative stitches using the sample threads. Dr. Bob’s Threadology DVD from Superior Threads will be available to view.
Saturday, November 9
November Demonstration: Ellie Held will show us how Cindy Needham suggests sandwiching a quilt Come and work on your own projects, bring questions and ideas, or just see what others are doing. If you bring a top to sandwich, please come early if possible. Table leg risers will be available.
November Workshop: small wool pin cushions. Participation in the workshop is always optional. After our lively discussion of pins and needles last month I was asked to do a workshop on making the ground walnut shell filled wool pincushion. Batting stuffed cotton pin cushions are pretty, but if you leave pins and needles in them for any length of time they will absorb moisture and your pins and needles will rust. Since wool and shells do not absorb moisture they are safe to use even in humid conditions. Thanks to a generous donation by Barbara Fitzpatrick, we have wool to share and I will provide the walnut shells.
We always welcome members who just want to drop in to visit or to work on their own projects. It is a very relaxed environments with members coming and going all day. Several member just stop in to visit.
If you have any questions, see the Bayberry Quilter's membership book to contact Diane McGuire.
