Bayberry Quilt-In and Share Our Skills

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.

January 11: Jump-Start for your Scrap Quilt (West Dennis Graded Schoolhouse)
We will have samples, books and patterns for you to view plus a number of quilting magazines with scrap quilt patterns and ideas up for adoption.

February 8: Take Off Your Girdle - Freeform (not Maidenform) Quilting a la Gwen Marston (West Dennis Graded Schoolhouse)
