FREE! Block Party Sew Party! (Sandi)
FreeSpirit published Block Party, a great book by 20 modern designers. It contains 40 modern blocks. FreeSpirit has donated ALL THEIR PROFITS for this book to charity. I am donating $8 per book to charity. If you buy the book, you can participate in any or all of the following:

Block Party Sew Party! Bring your scraps & sewing machine and come sew with friends for any (or all) of the Block Party sew day (11am til 9pm). All blocks returned to us will be entered into a challenge for best...categories TBD. Every time you participate (buy the book, bring in a block, come to a sew day) you get a raffle ticket. After we award prizes, there will be a Block Party Party, where we hand out raffle prizes and sew the blocks into quilts. All the quilts will be given directly to charity or used to raise money for charity. All for the good, every step of the way. But you can't play unless you buy the book.

The book is a great sampler of many different quilting techniques. Come learn the techniques for FREE, enter your blocks for chance to win raffle prizes, socialize with our great quilting community, AND build your karma!

Long time gone - weekday class
Long time gone 
Jen Kingwell's Long Time Gone is a unique quilt. Marti Michell has packaged 9 packs of templates, so no measuring or thinking needed. The good thing is that the templates make all sorts of great traditional blocks, so the cost is more justifiable. (They are Sets A, B, D, N, Q, Peaky and Spike, Pineapple and both small log Cabin templates). Sandi, who teaches the class, said the templates make all your points match, and make the construction super "easy." We will do it as a template/block of the week kind of class - 15 weeks. Cost comes to $20 per class - that is for 3 hours of instruction, pattern and a template set. What a deal.  Planning for all class dates will be done at the first meeting.
