Time to wrangle that fabric stash!
We're going to provide solutions to one of the biggest problems sewers face when member and long-time quilter Jenny Draper presents “Stash Management Strategies” during our monthly public meeting from 1-4 p.m. September 21 at the UAW Local 2209 Union Hall, 5820 East 900 North, Roanoke, IN (near the GM plant). The talk will feature ways to sort, organize, and tame fabric yardage, scraps, and notions.
What sewer doesn’t have a fabric stash? The larger the textile collection becomes, the more difficult it is to store and to keep track of its contents. Draper will show how to keep fabric neat, visible, and ready to sew at a moment’s notice. There will also be a Brown Bag challenge with participants selecting scraps from brown paper bags sorted by darks and lights. They will sew their quilt block at home.
There is no admission charge. We always have a free table of sewing-related goodies and invite everyone to bring one or two items for Show & Tell.

Mystery (Quilt) Solved!
The 2023 rendition of our popular Annual Mystery Quilt Event was a hit again! The fun began at 10 a.m. on Saturday, February 11 when the first of four clues - with printed instructions and a video - was emailed to participants, with another following every hour. By mid-afternoon we were still guessing, then came the big 'reveal'! See our version of a Chandelier quilt pictured at left. Click here for the instructions and a link to the videos or go to our Events tab and click on Mystery Quilt. We have past quilts with instructions and videos there, too. Happy quilting!
