Community Day for Stitch Modern 2014

Calling all scraps!

We have two main activities planned for Community Day (aka Kid’s Day). We will repeat the card making idea using random fabric scraps. People can play around with design and will get to go home with their own hand made card. We will provide blank card stock and some cards with simple shapes printed on them to provide the younger ones a guide.

We would also like to continue with the community theme by donating a quilt to a charity. Here, we will have pre-cut squares and rectangles that people can use to build a 12 inch block. If we have enough pre-cuts then we would like to have this be an ongoing project during all gallery hours. At the end of the show, all blocks will be assembled into a quilt and donated.

To make this a success, we need your help! If you are able to, please bring to the next meeting on November 26 any of the following:
-fabric cut into 3.5 inch squares and 6.5 inch squares.
-fabric cut into 3.5 x 6.5 inch rectangles and 3.5 x 12.5 inch rectangles.
-If you don’t have the time to do the pre-cuts, but have some scraps large enough, please bring it in! We have people willing to do the cutting!
-batting cut into 12.5 inch squares for people to build their blocks on.
-I have found that we do have lots of fabric scraps for the cards, but we could use more novelty prints to make the cards more fun for the younger crowd. Any size is ok.
-an easel.

If you are not able to come to the meeting, but would like to donate, please let us know!
