Upcoming Programs

March 11 at 9:30 at Cornerstone Lutheran Church

Member participation in “First & Last”.  We are asking each of you to bring one of the earliest quilts you made and one of your more recent finishes. We will each share a little about our own quilting journey. We will assign individuals into groups of 10 so that everyone isn’t standing up holding their quilts during the program.

April 9 – All-day Workshop, Rediscovering Your Stash, with Weeks Ringle. Community North Pavilion, 146th Street and Cumberland Road, 9 a.m.–4 p.m. Cost, $50.

Gain color confidence and plan creative ways to use your stash in one day! Mix a big dose of color theory with an in-depth discussion of combining patterns and a pinch of working with large-scale fabrics and you’ll end up with a plan for projects that you want to make from the fabrics you already have. In addition, you’ll have consultations about how to freshen up your stash while learning how to use fabrics that you love but find perplexing. You’ll see new possibilities for working with your stash and leave the workshop with beautiful palettes and plans for your next few projects. Bring patterns you love and fabrics you’d like to use or are unsure how to use and you’ll be amazed at how you’ll be able to pull it all together. Each student will begin work on a project of their choice during class.

  • Student supplies needed: An open mind and as large an assortment of cotton quilting fabric as you can haul! Try to include different values and hues, small-scale prints, tone-on-tone prints, solids, stripes, batiks, large-scale fabrics, and especially fabrics you love but find challenging to use. Small quantities are fine. You’ll also need a sewing machine, rotary cutting equipment, extension cord, thread, seam ripper, notebook or journal, and any supplies you like to have handy when quilting. 
  • Skill level: Adventurous beginner to advanced
