March Events

1.) Lucky Rainbow Charm Swap

Rainbows do make dreams come true!  I am so excited we are having this swap, so here all the details.  On March 21st come with two yards worth of 5 inch squares.  You will come in with one stack of one color and leave with a rainbow!  How cool is that?

If you are unsure the best way to cut charm squares check out this tutorial by Elizabeth Hartman.

  • A through E:  Reds (from Burgendy to the Hottest Pink)
  • F through J:  Yellows (from Sunshine Yellow to Tangerine Orange)

2.) Spring Time Pin Cushion Swap

In April, we will be swapping pin cushions.  For the love of spring, try to incorporate bright colors into your pin cushion.  Bright colors may cheer up your fellow guild member as they reach for the seam ripper. ;0)  Also, check out the Guild Pinterest board for pin cushion inspiration.

3.) Sew Into Spring Sew In

This event is still in the pre-planning stages.  It is our hope to secure a location and time for this event.  All details will be discussed in the next meeting.

**If there is an event you think will interest us, such as expos, upcoming classes, fabric store sales or anything fun or free.  Please send all event details towamquiltguild@yahoo.com.  We want to be in the know and give everyone an opportunity to join in on the fun!
