June 17th Sew-in

We’ve got a Friday night sew-in coming up in three weeks and there are still spaces available! Sign up and join us from 6:00-11:00pm on Friday, June 17th at Holy Trinity Anglican Church (details below). You can register online using our PayPal button below.

At this sew-in, we’re inviting you to join us in making blocks for quilts that will go to people affected by the recent fires in the Fort McMurray area of Alberta. We’re making large XPlus blocks and will collect them at our June 20th guild meeting in lieu of a block lotto. Of course, you’re also welcome to work on your own projects, I know I will be doing both!

Enjoy open sewing time with your VMQG friends! Baste a quilt on the large raised table! Cut out your next quilt using the large cutting mat! This is a great time to work on any of your own projects in the company of fellow quilters.

We supply the tables and chairs, irons, cutting mats, and tea. Donations of treats are always welcomed!

You need to bring your machine (don’t forget the foot pedal!), supplies for your projects, extension cord, power bar, tools, and dinner.
