April 2017 Meeting Recap

Chelsea brought our meeting to order at Louden Nelson Center in Santa Cruz at 6:38 p.m.

Stay tuned for next month’s meeting place.

East Bay Modern Quilters and East Bay Heritage Quilters are hosting a Community Sewing Day on Sunday,  April 9th.  Have fun attending a day of making charity quilts for The Children’s Quilt Project.  Bring your sewing machine – or not.  Fabric kits will be provided.

Our question of the meeting was :  Let us know about your favorite rotary cutter

The general favorite boiled down to whatever rotary cutter you really like 🙂  Lots of Olfa 45 mentioned.

Our fall retreat is completely full.  If anyone is interested in joining in all the fun, be sure to get your name on the waitlist.

Barbara Cuseo presented a demonstration on curved piecing and bias tape applique.

 

 

 

Door prizes were won by Lori, Anna, Tami  & Linda.  Happy faces all around.

Pam Rocco workshop:  6.17.17.  $35 for members.  Community Foundation in Aptos is location.

She gave us our choice of three patterns for us to learn and we chose Cheap Thrills.

Next month be sure to bring your completed blocks of the month, the “h” block, or chairs – name is your choice.
