Come and sew for as short or as long as you can. We have many projects that need to be layered, quilted and bound. Six machines can be set up or you can bring your own. We have lots of batting and can spray baste in the garage!

Potluck for snacks and lunch meal. (I will put together a big crockpot of chili!)

Please let me know at janquilter@charter.net or send me a pm if you plan to join us.

Teams will be formed, given a mystery basket of supplies, and then will have 90 minutes to produce a quilt top (don't worry nothing crazy, minimum dimensions are 24x36"). There will be new challenges and twists to keep you on your toes!

We can't wait to see what gets created!
