Hi Everyone,
The next Charity Sew Day is scheduled for June 18th from 12:30p.m. to 4:00p.m. at the Jones Creek Library.  Save the date!  Come on out and help sew together the quilt top.  We made a lot of progress on our last sew day.  Hope to see you there.
Big thank you to all that have helped to make this project possible.

Sew Day for Charity Quilts is a success!

Today was the second sew day for the Charity Quilts at Sassi Strippers. 7 of us gathered to cut and sort last time. This time we sewed and cut background strips. Jessie. Linda and I ran sewing machines, Valerie V ironed, Valerie B cut, Merline laid out the pattern.

The pattern we are using is a mystery designed to be made for Charity Quilts. So we are in total compliance with the rules on this one! LOL.

We want to have these finished for the Annual Quilt Show in August at the Library. We have not decided where the quilts will be donated yet, but we have time to figure that out later!

SSQG May 19, 2011 Meeting

Hi Everyone,
Sorry for the short notice.  Yes, we are having a Sassi Stripper quilt guild meeting tonight at the Jones Creek Library at 6:30p.m.  Glenda is going to do a demo on "making fabric" from scraps.  So, if you want to bring some of those bits and pieces from the scrap bag please feel free.  I will also need a head count of who will be attending the charity sew day on Saturday.  Valerie will go over the next step in the mystery project. 
Please bring the usual, fat quarters (any type since short notice), can tabs, cards, strips for the exchange, and show and tell!
See you tonight,

Charity Sew Day

Hi Everyone,
Valerie has let me know that the Jones Creek Library is available on Saturday, May 21st from 9am-1pm for our charity sew day.  We still have cutting to do, so we need 2-3  people to volunteer to bring cutting boards, rulers and rotary cutters.  We also need 2 people to bring irons and ironing boards.  Bring your sewing machines, and basic sewing supplies some neutral thread and if several people can bring clean empty pizza boxes we can put the completed blocks in them to lay flat.  We will have a meeting on Thursday May 19th and we can go over any last minute details then.  Remember to put this on your calendar!
