fabric YARDage SALE --  fabric YARDage SALE  -- fabric YARDage SALE!!
Come one, come all to the Pueblo West Quilters March 5, 2012 meeting
and help support the club’s activities by purchasing fabrics donated
to the club for just such a purpose.  There are yardages available
from 1 to 6 yards in a variety of colors and patterns from makers like
Cranston, Markus Bros and RJR, a few batiks, and some Christmas
prints.  All fabric will be sold as is, at $4.00/yard.  We will not be
sub-cutting any of the yardages, so if you don’t want as much as there
is in the bundle, then find someone to share with.  Bring cash, small
bills appreciated, or checks and help support your club.  We are
earmarking the funds from the fabric sale for our annual Christmas
And a great way to use some of this fabric would be to help support
the Alzheimer’s Association
Memories In The Making fundraiser.  PWQ participated in this worthy
program last year.  Artwork by Alzheimer patients has been chosen by
the Association and is being auctioned off for fundraising on April 5,
2012.  The Alzheimer’s Association has asked if PWQ members could
translate some of the artwork into a matching quilt to also be
auctioned off at the same time.  8½“ X 11” color copies of the artwork
will be available at the Mar. 5 meeting for you to challenge your
creative and sewing skills (remember the STEP-UP personal challenge?)
Turn in is March 16th.  Admittedly that is pretty soon, but we did it
last year and I know there are several of you over-achievers out there
capable of meeting this challenge.  If you want to get started on a
project before the meeting, please contact me to get a picture of one
of the artworks prior to the meeting,

Did you have fun doing “Out of the Box” hands on black and white
project at the Feb meeting?  If you’ve finished what you started, be
sure to bring it to Sew N Share.  Could this be your STEP-UP personal
challenge entry?  Extra STEP-UP personal challenge pledge forms will
be available at the sign-in table throughout the year.  Turn in of the
pledge forms is at any time, and the finished challenge projects will
be presented at the November 5, 2012 meeting.
Our program for the Mar. 5 meeting will be presented by Lorraine
Glach.  She will be demo-ing her published apron pattern, and showing
us some other things as well.
