We will be having a day full of demos and treats! Here is your chance to fill out your Christmas Wish List and pick up those little gifts for your sewing friends!
ENGLISH PAPER PIECING (EPP) CLUB
First Friday of the month at 10am in the classroom
Ready to explore the world of English Paper Piecing? Or have you already caught the bug and want to learn more? Then come join our English Paper Piecing (EPP) Club. If you want to learn, Nancy Austin will help get you started and she also helps us research new patterns and design trends for today’s quilters.
From the classic Grandmother’s Garden blocks to today’s beautiful millefiori fabric patterns, English paper piecing has appealed to quilters for several generations. Perhaps because it is portable and relaxing or because of the popularity of today’s “slow quilting” movement, EPP is once again being embraced by quilters. There is no charge for the meeting.
First Friday of the month at 12pm in the classroom
And for our wool enthusiasts, our Wool Club meets at noon on the first Fridays of the month. This is a fun group with no limit to their excitement and enjoyment of wool work! Hand stitchers of all levels are welcomed. There is no charge for the meeting.
Marcellus MODERN Quilt Club
Second Sunday of the month at 1pm
The Marcellus MODERN Quilt Club (MMQC) meets on the second Sunday of the month to explore the modern quilt movement. Its 25 members inspire each other, always encouraging to “think out of the box”, and share new ideas and resources. Guest speakers and workshop teachers teach new techniques like improv piecing, color placement and using contemporary fabrics to update
traditional blocks. Times and meeting locations change occasionally. Contact Cindy Wells at email@example.com for more information. Visitors are always welcome!
CLUB (Tuesday Embroidery Club)
Check the newsletter for dates. If you are stuck on an embroidery project, have a question, or just want to embroider with a group of friends, our TEC Club is for you! Our embroidery specialist, Michele, will be in house to lend a helping hand. $10.00 per session.
QUILTS FOR VETERANS
Third Fridays 10 – 12pm
We will have open sew days at the shop on the third Friday of the month to sew quilts for the VA Medical Center caregiver program. We’ll have some starter fabrics available but feel free to bring any patriotic fabric that you might have along with your own quilt pattern. Quilts should be approximately 42-45”W X 50-54”H. Stop in to sew and receive a 10% shop discount on all your purchases on sew days.
We will deliver your quilts to the Syracuse VA Medical Center for their In-Home Respite Caregiver Support Program.
Help us support Make-A-Wish as it provides hope, joy…and comfort…to families. Let’s bring together our community of quilters to provide a warm, huggable quilt to children in our local Make-A-Wish program.
Quilts should measure approximately 50” X 60”. Receive 10% off your purchases on sew day.
Make-A-Wish sew days: Thursdays Sept 23, Oct 21, Nov 18, Dec 16
