March Class -- Sunday, March 14, 2021
Glam Clam Quilt
9am to 3pm
The clamshell is a classic quilt shape. Glam Clam takes this classic quilt shape and updates the size and piecing techniques to make it modern and fun to put together!
This pattern is a rewrite of the ever popular Glam Clam Pattern. You asked for an acrylic template – and you got them – The Clammy’s in 6″, 8″, 10" and 12″ sizes. This pattern includes six size layouts for all three clamshell sizes.
It includes all the cutting instructions for all the shapes needed to make the Glam Clam quilt. Also included are coloring pages and row labels.
It’s a fun pattern that is easier to put together than you think!
The Desert Guilds Quilt Show is just a year away, but the show challenge is being launched this month. The theme is Fortune Cookie. Buy a packet with a fat eighth of Hoffman red material, a fortune cookie, instructions, and application for $5 and create a small quilt based on the fortune in your fortune cookie! Stretch your creativity.
Robert Tucker will be selling the packets outside Monica's on Thursday, February 25 from 10 to 11am. Please wear a mask and bring exact change to purchase your packet.
Can't make it to Monica's that day and would like it mailed to you? Click the PayPal button and pay $6 ($5 for the packet and $1 for mailing to USA or Canada) and it will be mailed to you. Please order your packet by Tuesday, February 23 so we can organize to get it to you.
The entries are in and were shown at the February guild meeting, Saturday, February 13. They are posted on the website so members can have a closer look and be ready to vote at the March meeting on Saturday, March 13. Click here to see the quilts.
Watch for information on the next Sew What Table in 2021! Even more great bargains are coming!
Stitches For Kids have been at it again. They delivered 38 quilts to Olive Crest at the end of January. Great job, ladies!
And there was more by Stitches For Kids!
Linda Jones delivered these quilts to Olive Crest on behalf of the Friendship Group, Stitches For Kids. A big thank you to all the ladies in that group -- Stella, Suzanne, Nora, Beth, Eleda, Ruth, Linda and of course their leader Pat Page. What a wonderful job you are doing!
Marcia Ulrich has delivered over 700 surgical caps to Linda Evans of Desert Regional/JFK Hospitals for use by their staff. What a wonderful effort from many of our members. The work is continuing and you can pick up kits to sew into surgical caps or drop off finished caps on Thursdays between 10am and 11am outside Monica’s Quilt and Bead Creations. Don't forget to wear your masks. Any questions, just contact Marcia Ulrich at email@example.com
