Tangled Threads Quilt Club 2021
Thank you for your interest in our Tangled Threads Quilt Club for 2021. Our current club is holding strong despite all the chaos 2020 has had for us. Covid has put a halt to any and all club meetings, but hopefully we will be able to hold small gatherings in 2021. Notes on how and when this could be happening is at the end of this letter.
This year we will be featuring the Block of the Month “Crossed Section” by Wilmington Prints. The pattern is $25 but club members are given a special price of $20. The pattern is for a twin-size quilt but can easily have a border added to create a perfect full or queen-sized quilt. (The pattern is written with two different finishing techniques both measuring the same size.) The samples were created with Black/White/Red/Grey colors, but you can create your own quilt using many different fabric options from monochrome, three tones, scrappy, or anything in between. Fabric kits to make a quilt like our in-store sample will be available for purchase.
Those who would like to make smaller projects, will be offered other featured items from the book Tabletastic by Doug Leko. Each month 1-2 different runners or toppers will be highlighted. Throughout the year all 20 of the items will be featured at some point.
Members are challenged to sew each month at their home on either the quilt or on the featured project. If they bring back one of the items from the previous month, they will be given a Fat Quarter/Quarter Yard Token. Even with the absence of the meeting, we will continue to take pictures to share with others; and possibly posted on our Facebook page.
Until we can hold gatherings, we will continue to have the monthly newsletter and recipe available anytime after the 2nd Tuesday of each month. We also have monthly sales that are also for members only. When you visit the shop each month, you can pick up your newsletter, token (completed project required), and recipe. We will share with you the featured items for that month and help you with any questions you are having. Samples of the monthly recipe will also be made and given out… until they are gone! Your monthly newsletters will be placed in your folder each month on the 2nd Tuesday of . If you do not make it in one month, it will be there for you the next time you visit!
WHEN we start holding club gatherings they will be conducted in the same way we have held classes in the past. Each gathering will be scheduled, but limited to eight in each session. Gathering times/dates will be scheduled at a future date. We are not making any reservations or plans at this time for any specific dates.
Membership fees are $40 annually.
