This sew-in is a perfect time to baste your quilts that you’ve entered in the VMQG Showcase to be held on August 27th & 28th! At this sew-in, we’re inviting you to join us in making heart blocks to contribute to the Quilts for Pulse effort. We’re making 10″ heart blocks (instructions at this link) and will collect them at our July 18th outdoor guild meeting. Of course, you’re also welcome to work on your own projects, as usual!

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.

The Details

Holy Trinity MapWhen: 1:00pm-11:00pm,
Friday, July 15th, 2016

Where: Parish Hall, Holy Trinity Church, 1440 West 12th Avenue at Hemlock Street, Vancouver. Enter through the main doors on the south side of West 12th and go up the elevator to the second floor.

Cost: There is a $10 fee per sew-in if you pre-pay before the sew-in day (you can pay via PayPal if you like, see button above) and a $15 fee at the door (cash or credit card). Members get first opportunity on the 16 or so spaces available. If you are not a VMQG member, consider joining or email us to see if there is space available for you.

There is a kitchen at Holy Trinity, so you will be able to heat up your dinner if you wish.
Parking: There is a small parkade off of West 12th Avenue with about ten spaces however most of them are marked small car only. Parking is limited on street, more spaces open up at 6pm. There are three spaces in the alley behind the church and they access the Parish Hall through the alley (a phone number will be posted on the door if the doors are locked). As this is our first sew-in with an afternoon component, parking will be more of a challenge and we encourage people to carpool if possible.
How do I sign up? You can sign up for this sew-in by paying $10 via PayPal (see above), or by paying $15 at the door (email Holly first to confirm that there’s room for you!).
Please contact Holly (holly@vancouvermodernquiltguild.ca) to register or with any questions.

See you there!
