May 30th - Community Service Sewing Night

We would like to focus on quilting some of our many pieced tops, so bring your sewing machine and any items you use to sandwich and quilt.  I know some of you prefer piecing over quilting, so we will have some kits available to piece.  if there is anyone who would like to put together kits using some of our pre-cut squares and rectangles, please let Penny know sot hat we are sure to have some on hand.

Change to Sunday Sew-ins

It was announced at last night's meeting that there has been a change to the Sunday Sew-in.  The Chandler Police Substation has had a lot of demand from quilt groups for use of the room.  So, they have decided to have the room open on the last Sunday of each month from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. for any quilters that would like to use it.  This is a longer time than we used to have available.

So bring your project, maybe meet some quilters from other groups, chat with folks from our group, and have some fun.  This can be a good time to get other opinions on a project or pattern with which you are having some difficulty. You don't have to stay for the entire time.  You can arrive and leave whenever you want between 8:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m.  Be sure to clean up after yourself before you leave.

Note:  The Police do have the right to cancel the Sew-ins at the last minute if they need the room for a meeting.  This does not happen often.
