Weather Delay/Cancellation: If there is ever a last minute delay or cancellation of a meeting due to weather, it will be posted right here. So, if you're unsure, check here before you head out. We'll do our best to post information at least 60 minutes before a meeting starts.
We need your toppers by the August Meeting, August 27th, 2018. It is a day meeting. Please make sure they are turned in before the meeting if you can't be there.
Take as many as you can do. Do don’t over achieve. One is perfect. More is a bonus!
There is a roster in the bag. Write the number down that you took by your name. If you are not on the roster, please write it in with your contact info. Email and phone is enough for me.
When you bring them back there is a bag to turn them in. Make sure that your name is on any that you turn in. I don’t want to bug you about them, when I already have them.
We need 72 more toppers! These are so easy to make and fun! A bonus is getting to finish something quickly!
It is the perfect way of doing a thread out, testing your fabrics for another applique (on a smaller scale). Testing out that fabric painting, quilting of a new pattern. Practicing your machine applique. Paper piecing patterns can be shrunk down to scale. Same as applique patterns. If you need a pattern, let me know and I will provide you with something. Beading is also perfect for these, so if you want to learn or practice your beading on fabric. What about learning Wool Applique? These would be perfect!
We are well known for our ribbons, so take your time. Think of the categories your ribbon topper can go on, if this helps you. Please refrain from doing a series of them. Make them individual pieces of art. If you have a pattern you like, change the background fabric, change your colors. Have fun with them. Remember that the rosettes are red, blue, white, yellow & purple. Use fabrics that will look good with them. We want them to shine!
You can pick up the stabilizer at any meeting. You can pick them up at Santa Fe Quilting on Monday, Wednesday’s or Fridays. You can turn in your toppers at all the same places, but you can turn them in on any day. There is a bag at SFQ to turn them in. Make Sure you have your name on them, please!
There will be a workshop on ribbon toppers at the Retreat. Time to be announced by the Retreat committee, in case you won’t be at retreat and want to come.
