March 2018 Newsletter

The Quilt Gallery - Our gallery exhibit for March has Ruth Kinane from Sunriver for our Featured Quilter. And our theme for the group exhibit is "Applique". We have about 35 to 40 beautiful quilts in the gallery to inspire you!

 

Second Saturday Strip Club – Join the QuiltWorks 2018 Strip Club on the 2nd Saturdays of the month at 8:30 AM. Our next club is March 10th. 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! Every time you come your name is entered in a draw to win one of three $100 gift certificates.

 

Novel Idea Quilt Exhibit - Every April the library selects a novel, invites the community to read it and they have programs and presentations related to the novel. QuiltWorks invites customers to make a quilt based on their own inspiration from the novel. Our exhibit will be up for the month of April. Book or craft clubs are invited to hold their April meeting in the gallery. Contact marilyn@quiltworks.com to reserve your spot.

 

Sew Teach Me is non-profit that started at QuiltWorks. The vision of STM is to match mentors with youth so they can learn to sew for free. Our first match was April 10, 2017 and we have over 70 kids in or through the program and 27 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 ways to help and to pass our love of sewing to the next generation.

 

April Quilt Gallery - The Novel Idea Quilt Exhibit will be up from Friday, April 6 until Wednesday, May 1.
