Sew days to make quilts for veterans

Second and fourth Fridays at 10am

 

 

Lisa Gualtieri visited the shop on Saturday, May 19 to tell us about the Syracuse VA In-Home Respite Caregiver Support Program.  Lisa says, “When I visit the Veteran and their family for the first time with their volunteer, I give them a quilt and tell them that someone made the quilt to say ‘Thank you for your service’.

 

Beginning Friday, May 25th, we will have open sew days at the shop on the second and fourth Fridays of the month at 10am to sew quilts for the VA Medical Center caregiver program.

Stop in to sew and receive a 10% shop discount on all your purchases on sew days.

20% off batting and backings for VA quilts

 

 

ENGLISH PAPER PIECING (EPP) CLUB

Ready to explore the world of English Paper Piecing?  Or have you already caught the bug and want to learn more?  Then come join our new English Paper Piecing (EPP) Club.  Bring your project and enjoy the company of other hand-stitchers.  If you want to learn, Nancy Austin will help get you started and will help us research new patterns and design trends for today’s quilters.

 We will meet the 3rd Fridays of the month from 10am-12pm.   Begins May 18th.

There is no charge for the meetings. 

From the classic Grandmother’s Garden blocks to today’s beautiful millefiori fabric patterns, English paper piecing has appealed to quilters for several generations.  Perhaps because it is portable and relaxing or because of the popularity of today’s “slow quilting” movement, EPP is once again being embraced by quilters.
