June 14, 2017:  Quilting Studios and Year End Meeting

7:15 pm At Harvey Wheeler Center, West Concord, MA

Have you ever wondered what other members’ studios look like? Can anyone be as messy as you are? Well, wonder no more. We will go on an imaginary bus trip to four Piecemakers’ studios, see pictures and have the owner discuss how she works. Good for some laughs and you just may learn something! Keep an open mind. You may be next!

Please Bring a Dessert or Sweet Something for Our June Celebration Meeting. All outstanding library books are due at the June meeting.  And don’t forget to bring your House Challenge quilt.

Fall Workshop

Birds, Birds, Birds! with Lynne Tyler

Workshop, Saturday, Sept. 30, 9:00-3:30St. John’s Lutheran Church, Sudbury

Come spend a day with Lynne Tyler and learn how to make your own flock of improvisationally pieced birds.  Learn new ways to look at your fabrics in order to create birds with attitude and wings that sing.  Once you make your first bird, you are off to the races.  It’s great fun and very addictive.  For more Bird Inspiration, check out Lynne’s blog:http://patcherymenagerie.blogspot.com/2016/01/the-last-bird.html

To register for the workshop, contact  Carol MacFarlane.
