PUEBLO EL MIRAGE NEWS
We have secured our previous meeting location! Beginning at our November 8, 2021 meeting we will meet at Pueblo El Mirage. Mark your calendars for the change in venue.
Our Charity Sew in September was a success. We now have 59 Diaper Bag Blankets and 35 Quilts for Casa (picture to the left) ready for distribution. Remember, contact Theresa for the Diaper Bag Kits and Marlene for the CASA quilt kits. We need to continue to support these organizations.
October: During the fourth Monday meeting in October there will be an Accuquilt demonstration. We will send out a list of dies for quilt appliques. If you are interested in using the dies for a quilt, bring fabric with on the back. Easy way to get rid of some of your stash. Start getting ready now!
November: On the fourth Monday in November there will be a class on Flip and Sew quilts. Fabric requirements will be forthcoming. This is a quilt method when you have to have a gift by Saturday.
