June 2017 Newsletter

 

QuiltWorks First Friday - Join us on the First Friday, June 2nd, as we celebrate our new exhibitors from 5 to 7 PM. We'll have a sale, goodies and door prizes.

July First Friday is actually going to be the June last Friday, June 30th because of a conflict with the Quilt Show the following Friday. Our Featured Quilter for July will be Patricia Roland.

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 June 10. 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.

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 24 kids in the program in the program at very stages and 16 mentors screened and trained mentors. 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.

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.

Longarm Promotion - We are thrilled to have two great quilters for our long arm, Vickie Minor and Karen "KD" Dougan. We offer edge to edge quilting and pride ourselves on a "Two Week Turnaround".
