Friday, Friday ...

Okay, I promise not to post any song lyrics. But I'm getting excited about Friday's meeting! It will be at Quilter's Corner at 6:00 pm. I sent out an email about the meeting this morning, so if you didn't get it, it means I probably misspelled your email address. Please contact me at if you joined but didn't get the email.

So, I'll be talking about English Paper Piecing. Catherine will bring some samples for next month's postcard swap. And we'll have lots of show and tell by members!

If you know someone who would be interested in joining us, please bring them to the meeting. We're always open to new members!

Now I just have to remember to bring my camera this time...

May meeting

The date for our May meeting is coming up! It will be Friday, May 20th at Quilter's Corner in Midlothian. We'll start gathering at about 6 pm, with the official meeting starting at about 6:30.

If you're new to our group, welcome! We'd love to have you join us!

What to bring? Well, there's always time for show and tell and snacks! And I will be doing a demo on English Paper Piecing. If you like to have a little hand work to do while watching TV, this is a great one. It's an old technique that can really be made modern with fabric choices. I'll have some supplies if you want to try it out, but if you would like to try it with your fabrics instead of mine, that's okay with me! We'll be using fabric (scraps are fine -- at least 2 inches square should do the trick), scissors, a hand needle and thread to match your fabric.
