What are YOU doing this Saturday, June 15th?

So what are you doing this Saturday, June 15th?  You could join the Capital Area Modern Quilt Guild for a community service sewing project at one of our local quilt shops!

We will be holding a Bags of Smiles (for Caitlin's Smiles) assembly workshop this Saturday, from 9:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.  Both of our LQS's (Smile Spinners and Quiltmakers Cottage) have been gracious enough to host if we have enough volunteers to "staff" both locations.  However, if we are not able to confirm a minimum of 7 for each location, we will host the event at Smile Spinners.  We will notify all participants by Thursday as to which location they will be sewing at.

Please RSVP by Wednesday, June 12and include which location would be your preference....please take into consideration that if we do not have enough to "staff" both locations, Smile Spinners will be the main location for the event.  Again, all participants will be notified Thursday of where they should "report" for the sewing day.

No matter which location you end up sewing at, you will need to bring:
  • Your sewing machine and basic supplies
  • A neutral and a dark thread (poly or 100% cotton ok)
It would be great if you could bring:
  • Pre-cut fabric, according to the attached directions
I have attached the directions for the bags...the directions for cutting are at the top.  Again, we will be sewing these bags production line style on Saturday.  If you are unable to attend but would like to still participate, please feel free to make your own bags (just following the basic guidelines for Caitlin's Smiles) and contact me to arrange drop off.  Any questions, please let me know.

Looking forward to sewing and wishing you happy stitching in the mean time!

Meg and Jill
