Once a year, we hold a Community Quilts workshop and our 2019 dates are:
Thursday April 4 and Friday 5 – 9:30am to 4:30pm
Saturday April 6 – 9:30am to 3:00pm
The location for the workshops is:
St Andrews & St Stephens Church
2641 Chesterfield (same place where we meet each month)
There will be a sign-up sheet at the February and March meetings, or you can contact the CQ coordinators by email to sign up, too.
The gym will be setup with tables, chairs, ironing boards, cutting mats, rulers, rotary cutters, batting and tables heaped with fabric.
If you don’t want to bring your sewing machine there will be lots of other things to do. You can iron fabric, cut fabric for a kit, layer quilts, sew on labels, sew on bindings, help out in the kitchen and much more. You can stay for the day or a few hours. As we all know there are many stages to building a quilt, so even a few hours of your time will help us get there!
There will be coffee, tea and goodies for your refreshments. On Thursday bring a bagged lunch.
On Friday and Saturday sandwiches can be ordered from The Galleria in Edgemont Village – with help from a volunteer to pick up our order. You must place your order by 10:15 each day and prepay so please bring cash. Price TBA – about $6.
The workshop is a great way to meet other members, share ideas, share a laugh or two and feel good about contributing to those who are less fortunate.
As always we need help with transporting the supplies to and from the locker and with setting up the room. If you can help please let Karen or myself know as soon as possible. Your strong spouse, children or friends are welcome to help.
We look forward to your participation and please remember this is a Fragrance Free Event.
