April 2019 Meeting Reminder

Our April meeting will take place on Tuesday, April 16th at 7pm!! Doors open at 6:30 if you would like to come early for some pre-meeting sew-cializing!

April Programming: Bring the quart sized bag full of scraps for the challenge. These bags will be swapped around to other participating members. Projects will be due at the July meeting. Use provided scraps + 1 solid of your choice to create anything, anything at all. A pillow, a zippy bag, potholders, a full quilt. Anything at all. We’ll pass out Chelsea’s awesome booklet, and show some great examples. Discuss (as a group) different ways to manage your scraps. 

May Programming: Scrap cutting party!! If you’re like me, your scraps are in a jumbled heap and need some serious attention. Usually, that attention involves cutting to precut sizes - so let’s make a party out of it. Or you can just hang out and chit chat, or cut for another project. 

Show and Tell: Make sure to bring your finishes for show and tell this month. Remember, each item you bring to show and tell in 2019 enters you into a special year-end raffle. Don't forget those WIPs too! We'll be pulling the winners (you heard that right, WINNERS!!!) at our May meeting.

Giveaways and Raffles: Our giveaway item this month is Three charm packs of Robert Kaufman's Valley of the Kings.
