SEPTEMBER AT THE COUNTRY QUILTER
We have been planning a busy, fun September for everyone!
The monthly groups will be reconvening, sign up to make sure you are included.
Scrappy Quilters (usually the first Friday) This is a group of quilters who donate their time, once a month, to make quilts for the shelters, the hospice and for others in need. All materials are provided. Consider joining this group for a morning of sewing and friendship.
Friday Stitchers and Knotty Girls meet the second Friday of the month, except in September when it will be the 22nd.
Stitch Club meets once a month on Saturday. There are a variety of projects to inspire you, or you can choose to bring your own project. Lots of show and tell and sharing of ideas within this group.
Stick Together is a class for fusible projects. Why not finish, or start your Canada 150 patterns. There are lots of ideas to make yours unique. McKenna Ryan or any fusible projects welcome!
Touch Quilts: This is another way that you can donate your skills to help others. All supplies are provided, just bring your machine. These quilts are donated to dementia patients in long term care facilities. Children with a sewing knowledge are welcome with an adult. Donate a quilt and the class is free.
September 14th and 15th are Sew Days. A time to enjoy working on your projects with friends. Come for one or both days. You can leave your sewing set up for the second day.
Fabric Collage September 20th and Designing a Landscape, September 21st promise to be inspiring days!
Beginner Quilting starts Saturday, October 14, from 1:00 to 3:00. This is the perfect way to get started, or to refresh your skills. There are lots of hints to be shared!
Don’t forget that the Richmond Fair is asking you to participate by entering a quilt in the Fair.There will also be a display of quilts from The Country Quilter at the Richmond Library during the month of September.
What a busy month!
