July 2017 Newsletter


The Quilt Gallery - Our Featured Quilter for June is Pat Roland. Pat is new to Central Oregon but her work has been seen through the Central Oregon Modern Quilt Guild and it's very inspiring. Our group theme for July is "Portraits" and again, another fabulous exhibit.

QuiltWorks First/Last Friday - Join us on the First/Last Friday, June 30th, as we celebrate our new exhibitors from 5 to 7 PM. We'll have a sale, goodies and door prizes.

Sister Outdoor Quilt Show is coming up July 8, 2017. Always the second Saturday of July. All the shops in the area are at their very best; new samples, new fabrics, new patterns. A great time to be a quilter in Central Oregon.

Sew Teach Me - STM is non-profit that started at QuiltWorks. The vision of STM is to match mentors, competent sewers, with youth so they can learn to sew for free. Our first match was April 10, 2017 and we have 28 kids in or through the program and 16 mentors screened and trained. If you are interested in more information it's available at QuiltWorks. We always welcome new mentors, new students and donors for the program. There are many different ways to help out and to pass our love of sewing to the next generation.

Second Saturday Strip Club – Join the QuiltWorks 2017 Strip Club on the 2nd Saturdays of the month at 8:30 AM. Our next club is September 9th. We present projects made from precuts; exciting monthly Tease Bags; Show & Tell from you; shop announcements; door prizes and always a surprise performance from Marilyn! There is no Strip Club in July and August.
