September Meeting

Just a reminder that our September meeting will be from 1-3 this Saturday at the Franklin Mill Store.  Hand-quilter extraordinaire Natalie will be presenting a big stitch quilting workshop this month.  If you didn't see her amazing hand quilted Single Girl quilt in person at the Lowell Quilt Festival you can check it out here.

Ready to give the hand quilting a try at the meeting?  Please bring:
  • A basted quilt sandwich at least 24" square for trying out some stitches.  You can use scrap fabric, solid or printed, for the top and bottom.  Please use a low-loft cotton batting such as Warm and Natural or Quilter's Dream cotton.
  • A quilting frame or hoop, if desired (not required to practice some big stitches, but can be helpful depending on personal preference). 
  • Size 8 perle cotton thread. 
  • Size 24 chenille needles. 
  • Scissors. 
  • A can-do attitude! 
As always we will have show and tell so bring your latest finish, work in progress, or anything else you'd like to share.  Sancks are welcome.  As an added bonus the fabulous folks at the Franklin Mill Store are offering a 20% discount off everything in the store for all attendees:-)


  1. Bummer. I wish it was closer to Boston. Hopefully I can finally make next months.

  2. I'll be bringing Natalie's quilt with me on Saturday, so we'll all get to drool again.
