For September’s meeting please bring:
The remaining fee for our October retreat ($100 if you've already paid the $50 deposit)
The fee for the Mister Domestic Workshop (Saturday the 22nd!) if you haven’t already paid. There are a few spots left!
A donation for the birthday basket if you're a September baby.
If you are sharing a skill during the Round Table Skill Demo, please be sure to bring your supplies and be ready to share!
NOTE: There is not BOM for this month, but the charity committee is in need of donations of backing and batting.
See you there!
We have some exciting events coming up soon!
Monday, September 10th we will host an Evening of Handcrafting at Metronome Coffee in Tacoma. Bring your current, portable WIPs and make some progress while chatting with friends. This would be a great event to bring a potential new member to, as we will have membership information available. 5:30-8PM More information can be found here.
Saturday, September 22nd we will have Mister Domestic in town to teach us how to weave with fabric! This event costs $40, and includes a $10 food voucher and a WEFTY Needle (the tool necessary to make these fun weavings!) You must RSVP to our Vice President of Programs in order to attend. (Sadly, he will not be at our monthly meeting.)
Saturday, September 29th we will have a Sew In! More information is available here.
October 12th - 14th is our Fall Retreat! We are opening our registration up to non-members at this time. Contact our Vice President of Programs to reserve your spot! Please find more information here!
Finally, it is time to start thinking about our Holiday Party! Please contact our Vice President of Programs if you would like to join our planning committee!
August's block of the month will be the Bird Block. Your bird should be 12.5" unfinished, but as always, please leave the final trimming to the wonderful ladies sewing our blocks together!
For colors: you can use any color for your bird bodies, but please use plain white for the background.
The tutorial can be found here at the Patchery Menagerie, and Karen has taken some photos of the assembly process for us!
