Meeting Details for June 16

Hi Everyone, we're going to have a great meeting this Thursday night! But be sure to read this, we're at temporary new locations for the next few meetings. (So sorry your planning committee had no idea what was going on in that department!)

This meeting will be at 6:30 at the LDS Church in Ankeny, 721 E 1st St, Ankeny. It's where Sewing Days are held, if you've been to one of those! Thank you, Leila, for arranging that!

Eva Marie will be our presenter and she will demonstrate "skinny strip/curved piecing/slice and insert"...some of the fun techniques she learned while taking DMAQG workshops!

We need some people (but not everyone) to bring:
  • sewing machines
  • cutting mats and rotary cutters (NO rulers needed)
  • heavy duty extension cords

Everyone who wants to try the techniques should bring their own:
  • piece of background about 10" square or no bigger than a fat quarter
  • some contrasting strips at least as long as your background is wide and between 1.5" and 2.5" wide
Erin will be introducing the details of the Summer Swap and opening the sign-up for participation.

We will also be saying "Bon Voyage" to long-time member Leila Gardunia with some extra pot-luck treats. 

See you all real soon!

p.s. Be sure to go to the DMAQG meeting this month too!! Angela Walters will be our guest speaker!  Her workshops are jam-packed, hope lots of our members got signed up in time to get to go!
