**Please note the different location!**

Our April 27th guild meeting will include a workshop. We will put our skills to use towards making clothing protectors for the senior care center residents at Shaw Mountain’s Memory Care Center. Clothing protectors are worn by the residents at meal time. The clothing protectors will be quilted cotton with a bias binding.

Materials required:

2 – 21” x 32” quilting weight cotton fabric

or
21” x 32” cotton terry cloth fabric
21” x 32” quilting weight cotton fabric

125” – 2 ¼” bias binding*

*Bias binding can be made or purchased. A 20” fabric square will result in approximately 160” of 2 ¼” bias binding. Binding can be made beforehand or instruction to make your own bias binding will be given during the workshop.

Before you come to the workshop
Quilt your fabric together (with the batting in the middle if using 2 pieces of quilting weight cotton fabric) before the workshop. Bring as many quilted squares as you would like to work on at the workshop.

During the workshop
The workshop will include cutting your quilted fabric from the pattern (provided at the workshop) and sewing on the binding. Snap closure will be provided at the workshop.

Additional requirements:

  • Sewing machine and related items (thread, rotary cutter, pins, etc.)
  • Extension cord
