Loose Threads – January 2015

Many Thanks to Diana Mauldin for hosting our Christmas Party.  It was a blast!

We’re doing a Mystery Quilt in FEBRUARY – here are the instructions from Laura Newbry so you can prep.

Loose Threads Mystery #2

What’s happening in January?

We are scheduled for a Friday Night in January.  You can make the Queen Bee Bag OR work on your own projects! If you’ve already made the bag, please bring your bag for a sample for everyone to see.

January 16, 2015 – FRIDAY

Friday Night Sew-a-thon – Free Sew from 4:00 pm to 10:00pm – Make the 120 Minute Queen Bee (Mat and Ruler) Bag (shown above) – Instructions here! or just bring your own project to work on.

Queen Bee Bag samples will be available and those that have already made the bag may be able to help you with your questions. Download instructions and buy your materials and other supplies in advance. There will be no teacher. Suggestions for the project – get a stiff liner/interfacing to help bag stand up better; cut before you come and if you’re using charm packs, sew your patchwork together before you arrive.

Themed Show and Tell

In order to build excitement for next month’s Mystery Quilt, let’s share a Mystery Quilt (2002, 2008, 2014) you made with Loose Threads or bring a Mystery Quilt you made with another group.

UFOs and Dues

No UFO Gift Certificate Winners in January.  What is this UFO Gift Certificate drawing? We collect dues, but then in order to encourage you to finish projects we offer them back to you in the form of gift certificates to quilt shops. To participate, please pay your dues of $20 for 2015 in January or February. Each month (March through December) you  finish a quilt and share it with us you can be in our monthly drawing to win a gift certificate to a quilt shop.
