Loose Threads 2011 Strip Club Guidelines:

Who is Invited: All members of Loose Threads and their friends.

Where: We meet in Country Oaks Baptist Church Chapel. It has ten large round tables that have eight chairs each. Lighting is a tad dim, so you may need to bring an extra light. Electrical sockets are FAR from the tables so please bring an industrial length extension cord. You can enter the chapel by parking out front. I’ll have a sign on the door. We have a kitchen and bathrooms close by. We have assigned two ladies each month to provide dinner for the group since we meet during the dinner hour. This is working out great!

What: We are forming a Strip Club in 2011 planning to do six patterns over 12 months, introducing a new pattern every other month (See Schedule Above). We are NOT copying patterns. Everyone has to buy their own pattern. If you don’t know where to get the pattern selected, check the schedule above or talk to Sherry Perez.. Be sure and be prompt in letting her know you need one and in paying her back for her trouble if she (or anyone else) buys a pattern for you.

How: Loose Threads is free to anyone who would like to attend. The Strip Club will be, too. HOWEVER, if you wish to participate in the bi-monthly prize drawings for finished quilt tops, you must buy in one time per year at $20 (Cash only, please). It is too difficult to pro-rate or make exceptions. Consider it a Strip Club Membership Fee. We will be dividing the proceeds by 6 and using the money to buy quilt shop gift certificates for the winner of the random drawing. This is so you’ll be committed to the Club and so we can have prizes when the finished tops are presented. The membership fee is the same whether you join in January or July, whether you finish one top or all six. Once you have won the drawing, your name will no longer be entered so that someone else can win. Note, if we have more than 6 Strip Club members, you are not guaranteed to win anything. If we get a lot of ladies joining the Club and paying the fee, we can get more than one gift certificate as a prize and have more than one bi-monthly winner. If you cannot make a meeting but finished your top, send it with someone else so we can see it, cheer for you, and enter your name in the drawing (if you paid your membership fee.)

Who #2: Teachers: Sherry Perez, Teri Kanallakan, Mary Landon, Angi Wiggins, Julie Heaslet and Peggy Rosler.

Which Patterns: See schedule above.

When: We meet from 4-8 pm the third or fourth Thursday of the month depending on school holidays and the COBC Church Calendar. The room opens at 4 pm, teaching begins at 5 pm.

Organization: Sherry Perez has offered to coordinate patterns and teachers. Angi Wiggins will take care of communication/emails, calendaring and the facility. Peggy Rosler will be Sergeant at Arms (If you have a problem, come to her. If you are a problem, she’ll come to you.)

Why: Form a fun club to do Strip Patterns, learn more about quilting and visit with quilting friends.
