January Sew-In cancelled

Our January Sew-In that was scheduled for tonight is cancelled.  But while you are home keeping warm, fill out the sign up sheets for these great  upcoming programs!
It’s not too late to sign up for the Tiled Background Workshop on Feb 25th. This is a Monday class! Kits are all claimed so if you sign up, sort through your fabrics for some that will work. Commercial batiks work too!
Feb 25th evening program will feature Kelly Kindt, owner of Pressing Matters. Learn about how fabrics and patterns are selected for her shop!
March 26, 27 and 28 is retreat week so there will not be a sew-in.  Attend as your schedule permits and leave all your sewing stuff at the retreat location. Enjoy beautiful views as you sew at the Tiaria Yacht S2 headquarters on Lake Macatawa.   You do need to register in advance for meal planning. The deadline to sign up for this retreat is Monday, March 4th.

2018-22-Oct Show N Tell Pics

Here are some pictures from our members show-n-tell.  I didn’t get pics of everyone’s work. Sorry about that.  And, what a job taking pictures of moving quilts in low light! (so there is some blur). Thanks to all who participated!


These last ones are charity quilts. Talking about taking  giving to new heights! DSC04843DSC04844DSC04845
