When Fall starts to come around, the kids have to start thinking about going back to class. But they aren't the only ones. You can start thinking about taking a class with us! We are offering Free Motion Quilting class that will be on August 26th from 1:00-4:00. And if none that class isn't what you're looking for or just doesn't work with your schedule then just stay tuned because we are in the process of thinking and planning more classes! We would love to hear what you would like as a class.
I'm sure you have heard about the Farm Girl Vintage show and tell on the second Wednesday of each month. And if not then let me tell you. Every second Wednesday the ladies in the Farm Girl Vintage block of the month group meet here and show and tell about what they have been working on. They can show the blocks they have finished from the group or they can choose to show and tell something else they have been working on. These ladies also get a sticker on their report card when they come to the meeting and show something of theirs. Once the block of the month is over they can turn in their report card and the number of stickers they have determines the prize they receive. These meetings help others get inspiration for future projects or can help motivate them to finish their blocks or other project they are working on. Sadly this block of the month group is almost over but we are all excited to see everyone's finished quilt.
With most patterns now they come on big pieces of paper and sometimes there is more than one piece of paper! And sometimes when the patterns are that long they can tend to go on and on instead of getting straight to the point. That can get frustrating when you just want to know what you have to do and be able to do it. Well someone must have felt the same way because they made new patterns that are only the size of a 4X6 photo! Now you might be thinking if it's that small then the print must be tiny. That's what is nice about these patterns, the directions are a very readable print and are very clear and easy to follow. The patterns even have pictures to help you out. These pocket size patterns are simple and easy but look like they took a lot of time. They are also organized by the fabric requirements: fat quarters, 2 1/2 inch strips, and charms. There are so many to choose from and the best part is they are only $2.50 so if you can't choose you don't have to - You can buy them all!
Since March people have been picking up four blocks every month for Farm Girl Vintage. And every 2nd Wednesday they meet to do show and tell. If they show their blocks or any other project they have been working on they get a sticker on their report card. They can turn in their report card once the club is over and the amount of stickers they have on their card determines what prize they receive.
These are some of the things they have shown and told us about at this last meeting:
