December's meeting includes a tasty potluck dinner and our wonderful Holiday Bazaar. This year we're changing it up a bit. Please see the November newsletter for all of the important details. If you are planning to donate an item for the silent auction please attach one tag to EACH item you donate. There are four tags on this pdf document which you can print and fill out ahead of December's meeting.
On January 14, 2016 join us for a Whistle Stop Tour where some of our member will be sharing their skills with us. We have a cross section of methods that I am sure you will find very helpful.
We would like to hold a free sew day on Friday, January 15, 2016 at Nino Salvaggio, located at 17496 Hall Road, Clinton Twp. Please sign up for this event. There will be a blue clip board on the Programs Table. If response is not sufficient, we will have to cancel this day.
On February 11, 2016 Betsy Koss will be leaving her wonderful home in Boyne City to join us. Betsy’s trunk show is titled “Every Quilt Tells a Story: 1850-1960.” This should be very interesting as Betsy is a very talented quilter. She is a former member of GLHQ.
March 10, 2016 brings us Pat Sloan. The title of Pat’s Lecture is “Quilting with Expresso - Quilts Creating and Fun.” She will be presenting two workshops.
Friday, March 11, 2016 the workshop will be “Wild and Free Applique.” During this class you will learn to construct a background using many different and interesting fabrics and Pat will help with the choosing of appliqué fabrics and touch on her method of appliqué.
Saturday, March 12, 2016’s workshop is “Medallion Magic.” This is a class she is no longer teaching, but she agreed to do it for us. It’s a beauty and I’m sure you will love it!
Both workshops can be viewed on Pat’s website: www.patsloan.com
Registration for both workshops will begin in December. Registration forms can be found on our website. Cost for each workshop is $55.00 for members and $60.00 for non-members. Registration for non-members will begin on January 15, 2016.
Classes are limited to 22 participants so that Pat has sufficient time to spend with each person. Registration forms can be found on the Workshops tab.
