+Block Tutorials: We will be doing 3 block tutorials. The 3 blocks include:
  • Flying Geese block (with minimal scraps)
  • Improv Block Piecing
  • A "Quick Curve Ruler" block
    • The QCR was created by Jenny of "Sew Kind of Wonderful" as way to easily create quilt blocks with easy to sew curves.
If you would like to make the blocks along with the tutorial, you are welcome to bring your machine, cutting supplies, etc. However, sewing along with the tutorials is completely optional.

+2017 Membership Dues
  • We will be collecting membership dues for 2017
  • Dues are $35 (an increase from 2016 by $5)
  • Dues have been increased so that we can find a bigger and better location for our monthly meetings since our guild is growing!
  • If you have already paid dues for 2017 before Oct 30, 2016 you do NOT need to pay the extra $5. A reward for paying early!
  • You may pay by cash, check, or PayPal.
