November Meetings

There is a change in meeting dates for November. We will be meeting on the 2nd Tuesday and 3rd Tuesday of the month.

November 12 - Our program will be provided by Pat Knoechel from Quilt in a Day.    Pat is Eleanor Burns' sister.  We have been fortunate to have Pat present programs to us in the past and they are always great!  She usually brings books, rulers, and patterns for sale.  The meeting is held in in Classroom 6. Park on the east side of the Church building and enter through the open entryway.

November 19 - Two reasons to enjoy this program.  Sue Williams, a past President and member of Nimble Thimbles, will providing a trunk show of her quilts.  She is a prolific quilter and it is always wonderful to see her quilts.

Additionally at the November 19 meeting, we will be having a Great Pumpkin  celebration:  Everyone is invited to bring his or her favorite pumpkin creation (one we can eat--not an artfully carved jack-o-lantern) and we will have a pumpkin patch feast!  As an added bonus, if each quilter who is bringing something yummy would email the recipe to Mary the week before, let's say the deadline is Thursday, Nov. 14, she will put together a copy of all of the recipes for everyone to take home.  Please write RECIPE in the subject line to make it easy for her to recognize.

Charity Sew In – Tuesday October 29, 2013

Join us for the fifth Tuesday in October (10/29/13) at the church for a Charity Sew In from 7:00-9:00pm. Please Note: The location has changed to Classroom 1 (Fifth Grade) and Classroom 2 (Sixth Grade). The location change is needed for this Sew-In as the church will be using the gymnasium. You will need to park at the East Side parking lot in the church complex. The classrooms are in the northeast building of the complex and entered via the courtyard from the parking lot. Bring your sewing machine - we will have lots of different kits available to sew or bring a project you are working on. Refreshments will be provided. This is our last Sew-In of the year - we hope to see you there!!
