2021 Meetings, Programs and Fun Events:

November 15

November 15–Make & Take project

At our BRQG meeting on Monday, November 15 we will have fun making a felted wool ornament to take home. Social time will begin at Tiara Yachts  (725 E 40th St, Holland, MI 49423) at 6:30, and we will begin our projects at 7:00. (Prior sign up is required.)


Here’s a list of supplies each of you will want to bring:

Paper scissors

Small sharp scissors for cutting wool felt

Straight pins

Sewing needle

Thimble (if you use one)

Embroidery needle

White sewing thread

Assorted spools of thread (Don’t buy any as we can share.)

               Turquoise, pink, red, cranberry, royal blue, sky blue, avocado green, gold, purple

Tacky glue or fabric glue to share if you have it 

Show and Tell:  We plan to have a special Show and Tell that features quilts or other items we have made that incorporate felted wool. So we have time to see everyone’s work, let’s limit what we show to what we can hold in two hands.

Ongoing Guild Projects

  • Paper Pieced “Sisterhood” blocks:  Patterns and directions will be available, one per person, at the meeting so that everyone has the chance to make a contribution to our quilt!  (It’s so cute!!!)
  • Placemats for Meals on Wheels:  Click Here for an info sheet with the particulars, shared at our last meeting. Pressing Matters Quilt Shop has kindly agreed to act as our drop-off spot for placemats and has already received some finished placemats!  Thank you to Pressing Matters and to the early quilters for their submissions!  

2021 Member Quilt Gallery Photos of your projects will be posted on the Big Red Quilters’ Guild website, kicking off our 2021 Members Gallery.  Please plan to email photos of your work after the meeting, including any other projects you would like to share to Janet.     

We welcome your suggestions for future programs and teachers.
