Jean and Alison Ruvel exhibited quilts at the Quilt Fest of New Jersey in March. We’re very proud of our fellow quilters, and are thrilled for them that their talent is being acknowledged at these regional shows!
So sorry to do this again, but due to the inclement weather forecast for tonight, the meeting is being cancelled. May Watson’s class for Saturday WILL BE HELD, and there is room in the class. If you are interested in signing up, or need information, please contact Gilma or Laura.
We’ll be sending out an updated schedule for the end of the year. In the meantime, keep working on those UFOs and the Spring Fling Challenge!
See you in April, hopefully by then we’ll see some flowers blooming instead of all this snow!
At our March 3, 2015 meeting, we will have May Watson as a guest speaker. She is a local quilter who teaches a technique called fabric collage. She is teaching a workshop, Whimsical Fish/Butterfly based on this technique onSaturday, March 7, from 10:00-4:00 at the East Northport Library, 185 Larkfield Rd, East Northport, NY. The price for the class is 35.00 plus a 10.00 materials fee.
There are still spots left in the class. Please email me, Gilma Simeone, email@example.com, or Laura Catlan,firstname.lastname@example.org, if you are interested in taking the class. Please bring your payment on the night of the meeting, March 3rd. There is a book based on this technique called Serendipity Quilts, by Susan Carlson. You do not need to purchase the book to take the class.
Also, if you signed up to complete a UFO, they are due for the March meeting. There is still time to finish, so get towork!
The Evening Star Quilters is hosting Karen Gloeggler, the author of Jane Austen Quilts at our March 5th, 2015 meeting.
