March Newsletter from the President

Hello Pueblo West Quilters,

2008 is already going quickly -we are ready for our March Meeting!

Monday, March 3 7pm Liberty Point Recreation Hall

971 Tolstoi Dr.

One of our local quilters, and past president and treasurer of PWQ, Joey Snow, will demonstrate The Disappearing Nine Patch block and also teach different techniques to make a traditional Nine Patch Block. This will be a fun class and the possibilities are endless using a variety of fabrics. This is a demonstration only, so don't bring your sewing machines, but if you have any nine patch blocks laying around in your stash, bring them and we can show you how to make them disappear!!

Thanks to Evie Sheldon and Patsy Morris for making us a blog on the internet.

Club Batting - Just a reminder that the club is happy to provide the batting for LUV quilts that you make. Its the least we can do since you are providing the fabric and time to make them. Just remember, if you take batting, then bring back a quilt!

Hope to see you all at the meeting.
