You know I am your friend, right? Because I search the web for fun things to sew and share them with you every day in my Newsletter. And we sew all kinds of things together like our Mini Quilts of the Month? Well, I feel like I wouldn't be a good friend if I didn't give you a heads up about something totally awesome that you might miss if I don't tell you... Enrollment for the International Association of Quilters is open... but not for long!
Are you always on the hunt for a quilting group that fits your schedule?
Do you find that the even if the group fits your schedule you are often missing the meeting, project and sewing alone?
If you have answered yes to any of the questions-- let me introduce you to the International Association of Quilters.
They are on ONLINE quilt group. You'll find all the patterns, community, and more inside the online area.
And, because it's online, you'll have access any time during the day, night or whenever! Check in quick or spend some time getting to know the other members.
You get to choose how much you participate. You can pick from a variety of projects-- there are more than 50 in there!
This year they are working together on a quilt block sampler (the blocks have been chosen by the members!), a folk art sampler that is all about you and your life this year, plus monthly projects by guest designers. Yours truly was a guest designer last year.
This is the place to find members from around the world and designers that you might not know of or can't travel to where they are to take a class.
Here's a quick look at what you get when you join the group: Member's Choice Quilt Sampler, Folk Art Sampler Sew Along, monthly projects from guest designers, swaps, mystery quilts. Plus, there are over 50 patterns in the archives you can browse, download and sew if you'd like.
The patterns aren't all quilts either-- there are pillows, wall hangings, table runners, pincushions, bags, dolls and more. There is something for everyone in there!
Enrollment for the group is only open a couple of times during the year, so you won't want to miss out!
Right now is the time to join - they just added the Patchwork Planner & Journal to the members area and there's going to be an extra project during Sept that you can sew along with.
There. I'm done. Now, friend, won't you share with me what fun sewing projects you've been whipping up lately? Upload a photo to our Show Off Saturday Picture Party below.
