First of all, I thoroughly enjoy show and tell. It is so inspiring to see what other people are making. We welcome all show and tell projects, big or small. I love hearing the stories behind the projects.
The fellowship is second to none. Quilters are amazing people. We know that, right? My customers have become my dear friends. Some of my dear friends have become customers. I truly believe that anyone can learn this awesome art form! Many of these women have been friends for decades. Some of us just met. One thing is for sure...ALL are welcome!
Our service projects are good for the heart and soul! Looking for a way to de-stash? We are always up to something! These incredibly generous women have made and donated hundreds of pillowcases. This year, we will pass the 1000 pillowcase mark! In February, we asked these gals to make a 12 1/2" block for a raffle quilt. One month later, a beautiful stack of blocks emerged. One talented club member volunteered to put them together. On Friday, one lucky ticket holder will take it home. The proceeds are going to Relay for Life. Isn't it breathtaking?
These people are eager to teach and eager to learn. We share tips and techniques every meeting. I enjoy learning little tricks to make quilting more efficient and/or more accurate.
Sound fun? It is! Material Girl Quilt Club turns 1 year old tomorrow. Join us for show and tell, fellowship, service projects, education, and FUN! We meet on the second Wednesday of each month at 6:00. We would love to have you.
Did I mention we have snacks?
