Scrapper's Collide Mini-Group - The Group is just starting to meet at Quilty Pleasures most Monday afternoons at 1:00 pm. Their first quilt will be "Fun With Bricks" from the website quiltville.blogspot.com. If anybody wants to join, check out the pattern and bring 2" cut width of fabric pieces of medium value prints, their sewing machine and BSS and just show up. If you have any questions, give Chris McDonald a call at (805) 522-0205.
Prayers & Squares Group - The Group was kicked off January 28th.Being
that we have so many wonderful quilters that are members of different
churches and faiths, we have decided to create a community chapter of
Prayers & Squares.
Prayers & Squares is an interfaith
outreach organization that combines the gift of prayer with the gift of a
hand-tied quilt. Unlike many other groups that make quilts for
charitable causes, the purpose of Prayers & Squares is not to make
and distribute quilts, but to promote prayer through the use of quilts. Their motto is: "It's not about the quilt; it's all about the prayers."
Quilters interested in creating quilts
to promote prayer are welcome. We will make quilts for anyone in need
and the quilt can be taken to a specific church, group, or be tied
within our chapter. If you have any questions about the organization you can take a look at their website www.prayerquilt.org.
Another new mini-group will be meeting at Quilty Pleasures on the 4th Thursday of every month at 6:00 pm. Join their first meeting on January 24th. The point person for this group is Melody Myers. Call the shop for details.
Quilty Pleasures is happy to provide a meeting place for mini-groups. So, these new groups are taking advantage of the opportunity to make new friends, talk, snack, show-and-tell, etc., and of course sew. Give us a call to book your group today!
