May 2013 Meeting Details

Our meeting for the month of May will be on Wednesday, May 1, 2013 at the Milhopper Branch Library, Meeting Room A at 7:00pm. We have some fun things planned!

1) As usual bring in your current WIP (works in progress) or finished projects for show-n-tell. 

2) You DO NOT need your sewing machine/supplies for this meeting. {We are planning a fun workshop for June’s meeting so we’ll ask you to bring it then.}

3) Eileen has offered to demo a very popular quilting ruler – Hex N More Ruler by Julie Herman of Jaybird Quilts.  Be sure to attend the meeting to see the ruler live in action and learn more about it including where you can purchase one for yourself if interested.

Let’s have some quilty fun! If you would like to participate in this swap here are the details:

1. Bring a small UFO (unfinished object or project) that you can’t or don’t want to finish.
2. You will swap UFOs with another member.
3. Each member will then have the choice to continue, reinterpret or repurpose the UFO into a finished project and return it back to the original owner at next month’s (June) meeting.

*Note: Try to choose a small UFO so that we will be able to do something with it before our June meeting. Some ideas include: an extra {lonely} quilt block, small paper piecing project, a mini quilt, scrap project, etc.*

This is sure to be a lot of fun so I hope you will join in!   See you on Wednesday!
