Reminder - Meeting and Fabric Swap this Saturday (Sept. 12th)

Just a reminder about the upcoming meeting this Saturday...

When: Saturday, September 12th from 1-3pm

Where: The new Bernina Sewing Center

2310-A East North St.
Greenville, SC 29609

At the September meeting Cheryl will give an overview of Digital Quilt Design using three different methods.

We will also bring back the popular Unloved Fabric Swap.  This swap will be to trade some of your old, unloved fabric for some new fabric!  Bring in fabric you no longer love, you never loved, or has been sitting on your shelves for a decade (or two) without a purpose.

This swap will be super easy, just bring several quarter-yard (or larger) cuts of fabric to swap.  Here are the details:
  • The fabric can be in regular 1/4 yard cuts or fat quarters.  
  • Fabric must be "good" quality cotton quilting weight fabric.  Good quality means quilt shop quality or similar quality from JoAnn's, Hobby Lobby, etc.
  • Fabric can be any style: solids, prints, batiks, traditional, modern, floral, plaid, 30's reproduction, etc.
  • Fabric can be washed or unwashed.
  • We are expanding this swap to include any unloved magazines, books, or notions you have.
This swap is totally optional, but I hope everyone participates because it is such an easy swap and it will be much more fun. You might love some of the fabrics others are swapping so make sure you bring some to swap too.  Any fabrics that do not find a new home will be donated for charity quilts.

If you have any questions about the swap, you can add them as a comment on this post or you can e-mail Cheryl at cheryljbrickey (at) gmail (dot) com.

Remember to bring:
  • Show and Shares including your finished stars from last month's paper piecing workshop
  • Fabric for the Unloved Fabric Swap
  • Workshop fee of $15 if you are registered for the Silk Batik Scarf Workshop
The Silk Batik Scarf Workshop is coming up October 17th with Faye Jones.  See the blog post dated August 31st for details and how to register.  

See you September 12th!
