As you know, our membership year and fiscal year both go from the 
beginning of March to the end of February.  Again this year, we 
are spreading our membership drive over February and March

need to submit a registration form along with the dues

Hello again,  
Hope you are doing fine and haven’t lost your sew-jo like a few of us! 
 I’m not sure what I want to make next.  I think I’ve exhausted all my friends and relatives with quilts and have done lots of donation quilts.  Now I have to figure out who is next!  
So maybe I need to concentrate on new techniques with new teachers. 

Speaking of that, we have our Carolina Oneto class on April 24th; please join us.   Remember April 1st is the deadline, and we will be
opening up to non-members if we don’t reach the limit.  


Saturday, April 24, 2021
11:00 am - 3:00 pm 


HOW MUCH:  $42.00 
deadline for payment is April 1, 2021

Sew modern quilts that illuminate your life with the help of ombré fabrics. Easy large-scale piecing shows the entire ombré gradation, while smaller-pieced quilts let colors dance and glow in hundreds of hues, tints, and tones! With a single fabric containing subtle shifts from pale to dark, color feels exciting and new again. Jennifer Sampou shows you how to make the fabric work for you, with eight brilliant quilt projects featuring her Sky Collection fabric.
Baby Quilt Project

March 15 is the final day to either bring your quilt to Exchange Day or make arrangements to deliver to Sharleen. March 25 is the last presentation to Summit. 
Sharleen reports “The Pastor did say today that all but a final few (of the previous quilts) have been given out and the families have been so grateful.”
Charity Quilt Story from Julie Parrott
I recently received a heartwarming note from one, Guardian ad Litem Friends of Children of Brevard, letting me know that the music theme of one of our quilts ended up being the perfect quilt for a teenage girl accomplished in music who they have taken out of an abusive home to help secure her a safe home with a loving family.
