Next Meeting Next Workshop

The next meeting is Tuesday, May 5, at 10:00 am at the Georgetown Public Library.

The program for the meeting is "Not Just for Mother's Day" by Eleanor Levie -- a trunk show of unusual antiques with special meaning for moms: Broken Dishes, Dresden Plates, Mending Fences, Wedding Ring....plus slides of award-winning quilts.

This collection of top-tier quilts celebrates women, capturing the joys, tribulations, and memories of family life, or commenting on social pressures. Some are deeply sentimental, others wild and quirky as all get out! She promises many more laughs than tears!

For the Show-and-tell portion of the meeting, share the quilts you made for your mom, or the quilts she inspired, or the quilts you made for your children or grandchildren.

Table Runner

The next workshop will be "An Extra Leaf for Your Table" by Eleanor Levie, on Wednesday, May 6, 2015 at the Georgetown Public Library.

You'll create an easy table runner with a single, large motif. Choose a long skinny shape (a giant leaf, a fern or palm frond, a banana, zucchini, chili pepper, ...). For more ideas, see her webpage. Your fabric choices can coordinate with your decor, or result in a fabulous seasonal room accent to celebrate a particular time of year.

If you hate lugging your machine around, then this is the class for you! Your sewing machine is optional! Workshop participants typically spend the time planning, designing, ironing fusible web to chosen fabrics, making templates, and cutting out their original appliques.
