The next Mudsock Quilt Guild meeting will be on Monday, June 12 at 9:30 AM at the Community Health Pavilion at 146th Street and Cumberland Road. There will be a demonstration of paper piecing, and you are invited to stay for sewing in the afternoon. We will be making this Christmas tree in a workshop together. The attached list includes all the pieces you need for the Christmas tree, so use some of those small pieces of fabric that you have been saving to cut the pieces before you come to the meeting. The paper pattern to complete the project will be provided at the workshop.
You are welcome to stay to sew in the afternoon even if you do not want to make the paper pieced project, Hope to see you all there.

Each month members donate fabric, sewing supplies, patterns, yarn and miscellaneous sewing and quilting tools. At the regular monthly meeting members are given the opportunity to buy these items at a greatly reduced price. The items that are not purchased go into storage. Members are asked to price their items with suggested prices of $4.00 per yard of fabric, $1.00 for fat quarters and other items at 25% of the original price.
This year’s sale will be held on September 9th at the Fishers United Methodist Church.
All the items in storage are displayed on tables and arranged by price in a fun-filled shopping event open to the public.
The 2016 Tag Sale and monthly sales totaled over $2,000. This is our biggest fund raiser and helps tremendously to support our guild educational presentations.
Quilts will be distributed to patients in Community North Hospital on Christmas day.
Donated fabrics are used for table tops and funds are available from the Women’s Auxiliary at the hospital for batting and backs. Just turn in your completed quilt with your receipts with your name on both.
