Strawberry (Yum!) Festival

Monday, June 13th - 6:30!  (Note earlier time!!!)

 

It is time to celebrate the end of an amazing guild year! On June 13 at 6:30 pm the party begins followed at 7 pm with the Demos and Workshop portion of the evening. Don’t be late – you don’t want to miss a bit of it!

 

Gretchen Gibbons and Susan Albaugh will be leading us in a Wool Workshop. Wool is all the rage right now and after Gretchen’s inspiring quilts at the January meeting and Susan’s Best of Show quilt at our Challenge in November, we wanted our guild members to try their hand at a simple wool pincushion project that you should be able to complete (or almost complete – depending on how much chatting you do!) in one evening. We have kits made for you (through the generous contributions of Gretchen and Billijean) but would like YOU TO BRING: Chenille Needles (or something comparable), assorted sharp scissors for cutting both wool and paper. Please remember to label everything you bring with you! We would also like you to bring some patience and a good attitude!

 

While the Workshop is in progress we will also have 2 Demos. Barbara Harrison will teach us all about 18th Century Welsh and French quilting patterns and she will have a Show and Tell for us to enjoy and Gina Gempesaw will teach "needle felting".

 

Remember that Robin and Mary need YOUR help setting up tables and chairs at 5:45 pm. Please plan on coming early to give us a hand – it is much appreciated.
