April Program Newsletter Blurb… (from Cass G.)
We are all working together to slow the spread! Brita has been rescheduled for February of 2021. For those who signed up for the class in March, your class fee will be refunded shortly.
April: In April, we have a Sew for the Show workshop scheduled at noon and our Challenge and Anniversary Party is in the evening. The Covid-19 guidelines right now are requesting that we not to be in a group of more than 10 people so we may not be meeting in April. I have no idea what things will be like in a few weeks but my guess is we will still be socially distancing…but you should keep working on your challenge entries because we will be naming that tune at some point. For now, work on boutique items…work on your challenge quilt and show quilts and wash your hands.
May: Fingers crossed that we will be meeting in May for Mickey Lawler’s 2-day class. We still have spaces available so if you are interested in taking this class, let me know. This class will open to non-members after the April meeting date, whether we meet or not. The cost for members is just 20.00 because there is a kit fee of 30 payable to Mickey the first day of the workshop. Mickey will bring fabric for you if you would like. It’s 9.00 a yard and I need to give her a count at least 2 weeks before she comes so let me know if you are interested in ordering fabric from her by May 1st. We’ll be meeting at the Darcy Lodge in Frenchtown both days.
June: I was intending to bring Sarah Bond’s Pickled Geese sign-up sheet for June to the meeting this month. If you want to take this great class from a wonderful and generous teacher, let me know. We’ll start signing up via email. You can send a check to me at 16 Harvest Hill Drive, Stockton, NJ 08559. Cost is 30.00 for members and 45.00 for non-members. Non-members will be added after the May meeting date. (I already have one non-member on the wait list) Below is a picture from Sarah’s Instagram feed. Looks cool, right?
July: Penny will be teaching Quilting with a Walking Foot-Part II. We have spaces available for this class although almost all who took Part I are already signed up for Part II. The class is from 12-4 but there is a ton of info packed into those four hours. We learned a LOT in Part I. Cost: ZERO! Please let me know if you have questions or want to sign up for any classes. Social distancing does not apply to emailing so keep in touch with your quilting friends. Happy Quilting!
