Diary Quilt:

Consider joining a group of women who will be meeting monthly to show and tell blocks that we each make for our own Diary Quilt.  These blocks will be of your own design, or you can choose to use the block suggestions out of "A Quilter's Diary" book.  Each block will make up our traditions, heritages and things that are meaningful in our lives, to eventually tell our story.  Our individually finished quilts will be an heirloom legacy that you can pass along to your posterity if you wish.  If you would like to participate in a wonderful, meaningful experience to share with other quilters, then this is the group for you!  Contact Jody at Home Grown Quilts for more information, or to sign up.

Come and sit and sew with company and enjoy a hot loaf of raisin or banana bread.  Call us to book your place.
Thursdays of every month: 10am – 2pm
1st Friday of every month: 5pm – midnight
2nd Friday of every month: 5pm - midnight

Demo Wednesdays 10am-3pm:  a new demonstration each week of a cool tool, a block that rocks or chic technique.
