Rag Basket
- Mar 22, 2020 01:30 pm

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.

Second Saturday Club
- Feb 08, 2020 09:00 am

Kim Jalette will lead Second Saturday in 2020, and will teach the Tara BOM from Linda McGibbon of Lakeview Quilting. This BOM focuses on precision piecing, and is intended for the intermediate to advanced quilter. Kits featuring Windham's Tara fabric line by Nancy Gere will be available. This BOM is inspired from an actual quilt that has been handed down from one generation to the next in The McGibbon family household. Every block holds a special meaning near and dear to Linda and she is ready to share it with the world. The original quilt was entirely paper pieced. This new BOM pattern is designed and written with traditional piecing methods in mind. Because Linda has a love for paper piecing, she is also including a copy of the paper patterns as a free added bonus. Paid club members may ask to join our FaceBook group for additional discussion!
