Loose Threads Summer BBQ on July 13, 2015
On Monday, July 13 we will have a special BBQ and Sew Day OFF SITE from 4-8pm. We are meeting at Sherrie Perez’s house. Details of where she lives was sent out via email. She has room for us to set up and sew. Then we can take a break and have a BBQ!
Food: Sherrie will be supplying the main course: meat. EVERYONE – Please bring a dish to share. Gals are sharing what they are bringing in our private Facebook group – please join the group if you have not already done so. So far, Margy is bringing baked beans, Cheryl is bringing GF macaroni salad (can’t wait to try it), Terri is bringing deviled eggs, Kris is bringing vegan bean salad and Cathy is bringing watermelon. What are you bringing?
Note: All the gals who signed up to bring food for June and July (Annette, Sherrie, / Roxanna, Margy, and Cheryl) can either sign up again for a different night (any takers for August?) or count this as your food night if you come to the BBQ and bring food. Thanks!
Also at the BBQ –
Bring your Round Robin – It is an exchange night! Someone gave me Pogie’s and mine, so I’ll bring them.
Show & Tell/UFO winners: We’ll be drawing for UFO winners so bring your finished quilt tops to share!
Row by Row Experience
Congratulations Kim Ross on being the winner of the Bolts in the Bathtub grand prize for the Row by Row Experience.
New Theme for the Second Half of 2015
At our annual Christmas party we usually have a drawing for prizes to award those that finished our challenge quilts for the year. This year at Christmas you can share February’s Mystery Quilt or the quilt you make from our Scrappy Block exchange. (Last year we had the Mystery, the Eye Spy and the Block of the Month to share.)
I was wondering if we want to call an end to Scrap Therapy for 2015 and have a new challenge for the rest of the year – The Row by Row Experience. Each of us could bring a Row quilt to share at the Christmas Party. See the California Row by Row Experience on Facebook for ideas.
Gals have already been collecting patterns. If you want to swap and share, bring what you have gathered to the BBQ or the next meeting in August.
Many thanks to Cheryl Johnson for the fabric dyeing class in June. – It was awesome. I can’t wait to see the quilts that come from these fabrics! Here’s some pics of the fun.
