Hi all! I hope you are enjoying a warm, family-filled December. Before I turn off all my electronics for Christmas, I wanted to remind everyone that our first meeting of the new year is coming right up. On January 3, 2015 at 10 am to 12 pm at the Wiggin Memorial Library in Stratham, NH, we will be meeting for show and tell and a quilted bag-making tips and tricks workshop from our own Jess.
This is a sewing-machine optional meeting. If you would like to sew along with Jess, please plan to pack along your machine and watch your email for Jess's supplies list. She'll be asking you to pre-make two specifically sized quilted panels, and gather the rest of your bag components.
In between show and tell and our workshops in the coming year, I've been asked to provide an opportunity for people to bring in Gathering quilts-in-progress and have them "workshopped" by the group. To get this rolling, if you have a project going and you would like the group's feedback, please feel free to bring it in January. We may aim for a more structured system in February--stay tuned.
Have a safe and happy New Year's, all!
