August Meetings

Thank you to Berta and Pat for our wonderful July meetings.  The Westalee Ruler demonstration was wonderful and don't forget that Mulqueens will give you 20% off any rulers if you bring in your AQG/Nimble Thimbles membership card.

August 2 meeting
Join us for a trunk show and discussion by Barbara Janson, a local quilter who has made a study of African quilts and their influence on modern American quilts.  This is a 90 min presentation so the business portion and show and tell will be 30 min.

August 16 meeting
A wonderful trunk show by Andi Stanfield about Monochromatic quilts.  She will be offering her book.

August 30 - NO MEETING
Due to the facility being used for election there will be no charity sew day on August 30th.

Camp is coming up October 20-23rd.  Talk to Colleen to reserve your spot.

July Meetings

Our first meeting in July was a lot of fun as our members presented their PUP (Poor Unfinished Projects).  The group chose which project the member needs to complete during the next year.  I am looking forward to seeing the end result of these projects.

If you want to participate in this activity, feel free to bring your 3 projects and share during the show and tell portion of the meeting.  We will be more than happy to choose the one that you really don't want to finish.

July 17th - Sunday Sew in.  Feel free to join up with other Nimble Thimbles members for a free sew in day at the Chandler Police station.  This is a come and go event so come on down for any amount of time you want to devote to getting some projects done.

July 19th is our next meeting and the topic is quilting with rulers.  Our talented members will be actually showing us how to use rulers on our domestic machines and allowing us a chance to play.  This is a great opportunity to try this new way of quilting.
