Hope's Journey Sewcial hosted by Sharon Coots

Come and join the camaraderie of a sewing bee! Sharon Coots will host our group on a monthly journey of small piecing based around the new release "Hope's Journey" by Betsy Chutchian. You can choose which blocks, how many, whether to make the small quilts and the big quilt or pick and choose blocks and projects as you go! Lots of options to create a quilt that fits your interest. The sampler style large quilt reminds me of the fabulous "Gone To Texas" quilt and is versatile in both size and setting layouts so you can really create a unique quilt that works for you. We'll have some added fun each month with history lessons, show and tell, a few guest speakers and lots of ideas to keep you sewing all year long!

A great opportunity to refine your sewing skills and enjoy the tradition of sewcial sewing. If you can't participate in our monthly sewcial, we'll be offering some fabric starter bundles and monthly small quilt kits for our long distance stitchers.

Circa 1880 Club at 2T hosted by Lee Glendening

This new program is based around some tiny blocks....made into a big quilt! Pam Buda of Heartspun Quilts has designed this project with a master plan for one big scrappy quilt and 6 smaller exclusive projects to create over the course of a year. Of course you could turn your blocks into smaller projects or arrange them in a different setting. Club members will have some additional perks like access to a private Facebook Group hosted by Pam Buda, some special guest speakers and product demos....and the option to trade blocks to expand your scrappiness!

If you choose to participate in the monthly block trades, each participant will have trading standards and use the same setting fabric so you'll have some consistency for your blocks while adding variety to the scrappiness. Lots of options for how many blocks will be traded, and we can even register to swap with other participating shops!

The project is designed to be created a bit at a time - Pam advocates for an hour a day, so you really can work this into your existing projects and enjoy the fun of fussy cutting fabrics, trading blocks and sharing the process with some like-minded reproduction fabric enthusiasts. What's not to love?!

For those of you who are long distance learners, this program can be modified to suit your needs as well - we'll have block trading options available for you and the Facebook Group will be accessible to all our participants!
