April Meeting

Our April meeting will be at Woodcreek Community Association (1991 Woodview Dr SW, Calgary) 7-9pm on Thursday April 18th 2019

This month we're going to be looking at techniques to quilt on your domestic machine. We tried to plan this programming last year but we just didn't have enough room - now we have plenty of room to spread out.  Several members will be participating in demonstrating techniques on domestic sewing machines.

Don't forget we're alternating North and South locations so next month we're in Hawkwood. For these locations we need to bring indoor shoes or slippers so we don't have to mop up after ourselves. We also have to set up / tear down at these locations so if you're available to show up early or stay late to help out that would be appreciated.

Coming up (and subject to change):
  • May 16th - TBA (Hawkwood)
  • May 25-26 - Heritage Park Festival of Quilts
