Coffee Creek Quilters
These quilters teach quilting classes to women who are incarcerated at the Coffee Creek Correctional Facility in Wilsonville, OR. For the last 17 years, they have provided hands-on experiences to the women in an effort to give them an opportunity to practice some life skills. Representatives from the Coffee Creek Quilters will speak to us about their program. You can visit their website here. They will also gladly accept donations of whole pieces of fabrics (fat quarters or larger–no scraps, please), so you may consider going through your stash before you come to the meeting.
The Doctor is In! Sometimes, we reach a point in our quilt where we just can’t figure something out. It might be a technique, design element or fabric issue. No need for despair. Bring your quilt and your questions to our “resident expert”, who will be available as early as 6:00 before the meeting and during our break time. It’s always nice to get a second opinion…
If you have finished a project recently, be sure to bring it to show during our Inspirations segment.
Don’t forget that guests are always welcome to our meetings. The first meeting is free!
