July 2018 Sew Day – Join Us

When: Saturday, July 28, 1 pm – 4 pm
Where: Library at Bown Crossing, 2153 E. Riverwalk Dr.*

**Note different location! You may want to bring handwork

This month we will be working on individual projects so bring your sewing/quilting projects to work on. You may want to bring handwork, as the room we are using at the library is a bit smaller than we are used to.

As always, please bring your completed modern projects to share with the group.

If you have them, it’s always a good idea to bring a power strip and/or small extension cord as well.

Not familiar with how our meetings work? We typically follow this format:

  • Quick announcements
  • Show and share
  • Sewing on individual projects, and of course conversation (or tutorial/presentation if one is scheduled)

This month we will continue to work on our quilts for the Boise refugee community. Remember – we kindly ask that members provide the batting and backing fabric for the quilt(s) they make. We can’t wait to see your progress!

Backstory: Last month participants were given a bundle of fat quarters that were donated by Massdrop, as well as some coordinating solid fabric. Members then started making simple, quick quilts to be finished at following meetings.
