We will have precut and ironed strips of fabric in a variety of colors for you to use. These can be used to represent Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwansa, or even Springtime. If you’d like to bring your own fabrics, just precut strips at 4″ x 13 1/4″ and then iron them lengthwise with the raw edges inside. The strips will then measure 1″ x 13 1/4″. Bring at least 4 strips that compliment each other.
Some other supplies that would be helpful for you to bring include, scissors, tweezers, several medium binder clips, fabric glue, a small iron and ironing mat, and Best Press.
We will be sitting around tables in groups of eight or so; and we’ll have time for a mini show and tell with our table mates. Bring along your favorite holiday craft or quilting project that you enjoyed making to share just with those sitting around your table. These could include ornaments, wall hangings, tree skirts, or table runners/placemats.
For our Inspirations segment, bring your favorite holiday quilt to show.
I don’t know about you, but I’m really looking forward to leaving my Thanksgiving preparations behind for a couple of hours to enjoy a very inspiring evening with my MPS crowd. If you can’t wait until the 26th, check out this YouTube video from Portland’s own Mr. Domestic.
Don’t forget that guests are always welcome to our meetings. The first meeting is free!
