Simply a Pleasure Table Runner
- Feb 04, 2019 01:00 pm

This table runner is very attractive and actually very easy - so it matches its name - SIMPLY A PLEASURE to make! We will make the runner in class, but the pattern also has instructions for 4 placemats. If you want to make those as well, the fabric requirements for both the runner and placemats are listed below. PRECUTTING is optional - if you precut at home, you will be able to finish the runner in class and may be able to start a second runner or get a few placemats done. If you don't have time to precut, you can cut the materials in class and you can probably finish the runner in class! This pattern makes a runner that can be elegant or whimsical depending on your choice of fabric - a great gift or a nice addition to your own home!

Rag Basket
- Feb 09, 2019 02:30 pm

“Rag Basket” may be a misleading name for these lovely bowls! Rag bowls have been made since the beginning of time, it seems. They have found some form of bowls that are wrapped into a coil in many archeological digs, that go back for centuries. In more recent history, rag bowls were made in Appalachia along with rag rugs that were known to hold up over time. Rag bowls are sturdy, versatile and fun to make. This class will provide instructions for making a small bowl and hopefully have you leaving with your bowl and all you need to make more. Be careful - it is addictive, but if you are a quilter and/or sewing "nut", you know all about that!!! One very good thing is that it allows you to use up scraps of material that you might otherwise just have sitting around the house.

In some countries, girls are unable to attend school for up to a week a month because they don’t have access to sanitary supplies. Days For Girls is a non-profit organization that sends sustainable personal hygiene kits to girls around the world. Everything necessary is packed into a small drawstring bag that can be carried every day. Capital Quilts Cares has contributed to this project in the past by sewing the drawstring bags, and we’re asking for your help to do it again. Bring your machine and basic sewing supplies. All fabrics are included, but we ask you to bring a new, colorful, pretty washcloth or two to add to the bags. For more information about this very worthwhile project, see www.daysforgirls.org.
