We have a variety of small groups that meet during the month. Some groups have full membership but many others are still open and are available for you to join. Consider joining one or more of these small groups or get a new group started. Our Small Group Coordinators for 2019 is Karen Cyson.
2019 Mystery Quilt - The 2019 Mystery Block of the Month Quilt program will begin in March. Sign-ups will be at the February and March meetings. Cost per participant will be $3 (for the entire year, payable once when you sign up) to cover the usage fee from the designer and the cost of copies. You will receive fabric requirements the first month along with cutting instructions. Months 2-11 will be quick clues for blocks and month 12 will be the assembly instructions. The quilt uses 3 fabrics- light, medium, and dark and can be done in any fabric style of your choice - moderns, florals, reproductions, solids, or whatever. The quilt can be made in lap or twin size (yes! I found one with both sizes!) and you could even make both if you choose.
Featherweight Group - This group does fun projects throughout the year. To be part of this group, you must own and bring a Featherweight sewing machine. Julie Johnson is the facilitator. They meet the second Thursday of the month at 9:30 am at Messiah Lutheran Church in Sartell, MN. Contact Julie to be added to the email list for meeting notices.
Undercolor Club - This group meets the last Wednesday of the month at 5:30 pm at Dunn Bros. Coffee Shop in the Coborn's on Cooper Ave. S. This group works with the "Color Play" book. Make a small project or bring fabrics to illustrate the color combination. Contact Marlyn Anderson firstname.lastname@example.org
Stearns History Museum Club - This group meets at the history museum on the first Friday of the month beginning at 9:30 in the morning. The group gets together to hand stitch pre-made little quilts that were made in honor of the Iran war. It is a huge project. All these little quilts were safety pinned to each other and donated to the museum. The museum can’t display it with pins so this group is whip stitching the mini quilts together. They are about half done with the project and are on year three. Interested members contact Marjorie LaTour or Sarah Howard.
