Contact person: Mary Syme, Lead Bag Lady
When and where we meet: The 1st Tuesday of the month, 1:00pm at Bonnie Filgo's house, 1341 Elk Loop, Sequim. Or come find me any Wednesday at Club! I'm always ready to talk about making bags.
Our group is open to all Sunbonnet Sue Quilt Club members. Our goal is to improve on or learn new techniques and have fun while building bags of all kinds. These bags are wonderful for personal use, to give as gifts, or to sell. Several of us have signed up for the on-line Bag of the Month Club, but that is not a requirement. The club library also has great books on bag making, such as The Bag Making Bible by Lisa Lam. Be sure to check those out!
So if you have a pattern you would love to try, or perhaps a bag project you are stuck on, please contact me, find me at Club, or join us at Bonnie's house and discover what we are doing. We have many talented Bag Ladies who would enjoy sharing their talents!
FIRST STEPPERS FRIENDSHIP GROUP
Can't fit one more meeting into your schedule? Consider being part of the First Steppers Friendship group which is under the Community Quilts umbrella. We've never held a meeting but we all love to sew for little ones in need of everything from burp pads to underwear to pants or dresses. First Step in Port Angeles provides support for parents who are new to parenting or just in need of a "hand up" when the budget just won't stretch to buy much needed pjs, diapers, formula or training pants. Technically First Step is for newborns to 5 year olds but per the director, Nita Lynn, they won't turn down clothing for older siblings. The staff eagerly pounce on the handmade gifts from the First Steppers so Nita has to put them in her office to be sure all staff members get an equal chance to take that lovingly made item to one of their clients. For more information, contact Sharon Clayton or Marilyn Williams
Hexagon Study Group
Contact: Nancy Wilcox @ firstname.lastname@example.org
Meets at 10:00, the first Friday of each month
We share our progress with English Paper Piecing Projects or your current quilting joy. Currently we plan to do a circular city medallion and pass around these medallions to create additional borders. We are still in the planning stages for this project. Last year we started with “The Hexagon Book” by Katja Marek. The exchange was fun.
We meet at Nancy Wilcox’s home and share lunch. My table handles 8. Everyone
Cannot always make it so we welcome new Quilters as long as space is available.
