Guild Sponsored Workshops
The September and October workshops we be held at the Living Water Church of Spring, 26910 Aldine Westfield, Spring, TX 77373. It’s a good idea to bring a sack lunch as our lunch break is generally a quick one. Registration for members is $30 and due upon signup. If there are openings one month prior to the workshop, non-guild members may register for the workshop for a $40 fee. All interested parties may contact Debbie Walters at firstname.lastname@example.org or 281.610.2543. (Workshop Fees do not include patterns or other supplies.)
Community Quilts will be hosting our 3rd annual Community Sew Night at the August meeting. Here’s a brief preview of what we’ve got planned:
- Construction Workshops to put together pre-cut kits
- Design Studios to create top kits from donated UFOs and panels
- Quilters’ Palettes to organize pre-cut scraps by color and size
- Master Scrappers to trim donated scraps into squares (cutting accuracy critical)
The next time you’re working on a quilt or organizing your stash/studio, set aside anything you might be willing to bring along and donate to the cause! Leftover project squares, rectangles, half-square or quarter-square triangles, blocks, jellyroll strips, binding and larger scraps of fabric will all add to our fun.
If you have a portable design wall you can lend us for the night (Wednesday August 1st), please contact me. We’d like to have 4 or 5. We’re looking for design walls with freestanding frames.
Our Community Quilts group meets regularly from 9 am – 3 pm every 2nd Friday of the month at the Community Center. Please feel free to join us anytime!
