On the 4th and 5th Tuesdays of the month we put together study groups & workshops to learn new techniques, patterns, or handmade items for our Quilt Show boutique. There is $5 fee to attend these workshops to defray prep costs for the presenter unless otherwise noted.
NOTICE: Groups of 10 can meet in the church on the second and fourth Tuesdays to work on items for the boutique. Please contact Carol D. to sign up.
The insewingtimes.blogspot.com has a free pattern for a fabric basket with a different shape. You can find the free pattern by searching for “DIY Swing Fabric Basket”. This looks like it could be another good item for the boutique at the quilt show.
An email was sent out to all members with the pattern and directions on how to make these, or you can click on the above link to go directly to the site.

Diane Harris - Stash Bandit
Here is an internet link that our members may find interesting for the next few months. The website is stashbandit.net. The presenter is Diane Harris,
and she is an expert on scrap quilts. She is doing a weekly presentation.
Sharon Holland Designs Quilt Along
If you are looking for a quilt along, Sharon Holland Designs is offering a simple one. Her website has a number of free patterns including one for a simple needle case.
Lisa Bongean’s website also has a cute free pattern for a wool sheep pin drum.
The free patterns on both of these websites would be good inspiration for items to make and sell in the boutique.
