For the workshop – please bring your magazines (can be the same as you used last month), a pair of paper scissors, and a glue stick.

Since we don’t have many people signed up for set-up & clean-up if someone wants to help out by bringing coffee time snacks that would be appreciated.

Come for the workshop, stay to sew in the afternoon.  Watt a great way to spend a cold January Saturday.

Rainbow heart

Somewhere over the Rainbow…

Reminder of our theme for the 2017-2018 quilting year.  Fabrics come in such a variety of colours, hues, and tones it’s good to learn and refresh on basic principles of colour theory.
