Angle Play Table Runner Class

We excited to have Ken Casey teach us his traveling teacher angle play class.  Due to popular demand there will be two classes April 7th and April 21st from 9-4.  Sign up for one or the other at Nimble Thimbles (or contact Kathy K.)  Cost is $10 to buy the pattern. Please pay ahead of time at Nimble Thimbles.  The actual cost of the class will be paid for by Nimble Thimbles from money budgeted for classes - you only have to buy the pattern to take the class.  Kathy K will have a supply list available.  Both classes will be at the downtown Chandler police station community room.

Happy New Year!

   Every new year brings with it it's own expectations, opportunities, limitations and change. Some doors open, others close. Quilters are a hardy breed. We've known how to work within limitations, for that is where quilting has come from. Some call it frugality, or thriftiness. I prefer 'artistic challenge'.
   This year, both our Chapter and AQG will offering wonderful opportunities for learning,  creating and showing quilts. Be sure to check the AQG website and this blog for upcoming opportunities. Kathy Krieg and Becky Brown are putting a banner year of activities together, so let's enjoy their hard work, along with ours and have indeed, a happy new year.

your President,
Joanne Reiter
