Kids Summer Quilt Camp
July 13-17, 2015
9:00 a.m. - 12:30
Coastal Quilters Workshop
Nine Patch Delights
You haven't lived until you've sewn a few nine patches, then cut them up in different ways for a whole look to your blocks... only there's more than one new look the way Sheryl Milner teaches it...
When: Saturday, April 18
Where: Scotty Culp Auditorium
565 Cassia Blvd., Satellite Beach
Meeting Time: 9:30 -3:30
Bring: six 10" squares of light fabric, six 10" squares of dark fabric, rotary cutter, sewing machine with quarter inch foot, general sewing supplies, and your lunch.
This is a technique class so you do not have to be too particular about your fabrics. They can be the same fabric or different fabrics for a scrappy look.
Raffle Quilt Proceeds Purchase shoes for Brevard kids
Funds have been delivered to Cambridge Elementary in Cocoa, and Riviera Elementary in Palm Bay. The schools gratefully accepted the checks which were used for shoes, socks and underwear for children in need. Thanks to all of you who participated.
The WINNER of the beautiful tulip garden raffle quilt is Louise Repath. A second winner was drawn, and Irena Moore was given the opportunity to select her quilt from our floral collection. Louise purchased her ticket from a member, and Irena bought hers from Quilting Folks. The real winners are the children who are wearing new shoes...
QAKH (Quilters Against Kids Homeless/Hunger) quilt-ins will resume in June and continue throughout the summmer. Community members are welcome to join us - there are non-sewing jobs such as ironing for people who don't want to bring sewing machines and sew.
Click on the video below for the August 2014 quilt-in. Though the woman at the beginning is identified as Sheryl Milner, QAKH's coordinator, it is actually Margie Engel. Margie will quickly tell you that Sheryl is much better looking, and younger too! The real treat is seeing Lydia Howald, one of our senior campers.
