2015 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. Come and welcome new members and have a chance to socialize with friends. Door prizes will be awarded for wearing your name tag (or a temporary one available at the door).
Quilt-Ins are held on the second Saturday of each month. The doors open at 9:00 am and the workshop or demonstration starts at 10:00 am.
Please contact Diane McGuire with any questions.
