Measure Twice, Cut Once

What a great meeting this month! We’re slowly starting to get back to normal. Ten members were present in-person and ten members were watching via Zoom.

Guild members Susan Berteaux and Holly Santangelo provided demonstrations on using specialty rulers and ways to cut flying geese. Both presentations were well received and were found to be helpful in cutting and sewing more complicated pieces. For details and links to products and instructions, go to our EVENTS page.

In addition, the row quilts that members have been working on over the past 8 months were revealed. To view the beautiful and amazing end results, go to our EVENTS page.

Choosing the Right Thread & Needle

One of our members shared an interesting and informative article from the Aurifil blog Auribuzz about selecting the correct thread and needle combination to achieve the results you want. The article features Yvonne Fuchs who describes herself as a “former aerospace engineer turned modern quilter, designer, and technical editor.”  Yvonne has her own blog QuiltingJetGirl.

You may find this article very helpful when taking on your next project, whether it be machine quilting or taking on your first thread painting project.
