The May meeting will bring an opportunity to choose your favorite volunteer job for Quilt Plano 2018. Sign-up sheets will be available for a variety of different activities. In addition, you can see a demonstration on how to put a sleeve on your show quilt, plus preview several of the demos that will be happening at the show.
Michelle Dorsey has been teaching sewing and embroidery classes in the Dallas, Texas, area for many years. She gravitates toward tote bags and purses and has been called the "Tote Bag Queen" once or twice. She will be conducting two workshops for us in May:
Friday, May 11th - Sassy Screen Tote BagCompleted size is approximately 12 ½" wide x 11 ½"tall x 4" deep. This is a GREAT beginner pattern. No zippers or embroidery.
Saturday, May 12th - Happy Bag
Need a quick project that's easy, Fat Quarter Friendly and can be used for multiple things? This adorable bag is 7" wide x 9" long.
For more about Michell Dorsey and for details and supply lists for her May workshops, see the Programs page.
There is a new tutorial, complete with pictures, on the How To... page (under Resources) - Machine Binding in Four Simple Steps. This is a great way to bind those community service quilts, or any other quilt that needs a quick, sturdy binding.
