Quilting Tip of the Week 4.16.15

Sometimes you run out of storage for your larger yardage pieces. If you store them in another area other than your sewing room, try using index cards in a file box.

Mark the total yardage, place of purchase and date, if washed and a sample of the fabric glued on the card. This is especially good for those larger yardage pieces saved for quilt backs. I also mark the number of the storage box it's in for quick access.

Pine Needles Quilters of Norway/So. Paris will be hosting an Area 3 meeting on Tuesday, May 5th at 9:00 am. to be held at the Norway Second Congregational Church, 218 Main St., Norway (on the corner of Main and Paris streets).
We will be serving a light breakfast followed by the meeting. The theme for this event is “Spring is Sprung” and we will be accepting a 12 1/2” pieced block of any flower design (quilters choice) on an unbleached muslin background for the drawing.

This block can be any style, pieced, applique, paper pieced, as long as it is a flower. The speaker will be Kim Hamlin from Fiber & Vine in Norway.

There will be a gift for everyone attending, a sale table, door prizes and time for show and tell.
Mark your calendars now!
