October 3- Small Quilt Auction Fundraiser: Join us for our annual fundraiser. Please consider donating a small quilt or quilted item (bag, potholders, place mats. etc.) to be auctioned off on this fun night. Likewise, please invite a friend or two who might appreciate purchasing items. This is a great time to grab a one of a kind gift and it happens right before the holidays!
You can drop off your donated auction items early if needed to Debbie Ament. She is also seeking some help with the auction.She is looking for volunteers to help check in quilts, auctioneer, display quilts in the room, notating auction results, and cashiers. Please connect with her at Tuesday's meeting or at Debbie's email.
October 17th Meeting Toothbrush Rag Rugs.
Debbie is hosting this hands-on class learning how to make Toothbrush Rag Rugs. It's fun and easy and requires only 2 supplies- fabric strips and a tool Nimble Thimbles will be supplying.
What do you need to bring:
- A pair of scissors
- 1 inch wide by WOF (with of fabric) strips in your choice of color. Bring as many as you like since you can add later to make a bigger rag rug. We will bring extras for guests.
