Sewing Machine Repair


Friends, I hope I'm not the only one limping along with needed repairs to her machine. Thanks for the reminder (and encouragement). Here is the repairman I've used. He is a very kind, retired machine salesman/repairman and very quick to come TO YOUR HOME! I will also call him (to tune up my machine) and see if he will come to a meeting this session to sharpen scissors for the group.

Bird Swap Rules

Going along with our flying geese theme, Session 11 includes a bird fabric swap, should you want to participate. Sign ups for this will close after September's meeting. Here are the rules for this particular swap:


  • Please check our instagram hashtag #ucmqgbirdswap to make sure the bird fabric you have your eye on hasn't been used yet. We will only allow 2 duplicates of any fabric. 
  • Post a picture of the fabric you purchased, and use the hashtag.
  • Any size or color bird print, please choose current quilt shop quality fabric. (We are hoping to avoid Angry Birds, or any hunting type theme. Think current and Modern and you'll be fine.)
  • Buy 4 yards of the same print, and cut it into 16 fat quarters - put them all into a bag with your name on it.
  • Bring your 16 fat quarters to our Modern meeting in October.
  • Anna will swap the fabrics and return them to everyone in November.
Any questions, let us know! So far the fabrics I'm seeing on insta are awesome!!!

July: 3 Vets of a Different Kind



This month we spotlighted three women who have been with us since the beginning: Elisa, Jill & Connie. They make such beautiful things and it was so fun to see their versions of the themes we've studied together over the years. Unfortunately, I was so enthralled with their quilts that I didn't realize my camera settings were off until half way through the show, so sorry.




We also talked about next session, Session 11, where we will delve into flying geese together, have a pincushion swap, exchange bird fabrics, and try something new with a hoop display for the store. Sign ups will begin August 1, and our August meeting will be outside under the big tree again, so bring a camp chair.

April Meeting

Friends, thanks for so much fun in April. I hope you are continuing to make new friends and feel like you have a place here each month.

For those of you who are participating in the large floral swap, Anna collected them on Saturday and will stack & swap and bring cute bundles to our May meeting.

May's meeting is back to the regularly scheduled 3rd Saturday.

May 14 will be this session's Open Sew day, free to members. This is not an after class Sew Day, so make a note of the date and let one of us know you want to come if you didn't get to sign up already.

May 17-18 is our Kathy Doughty Workshop & Lecture/Dinner/Book Signing. Visit quilt-bliss.com for more information and to purchase tickets. We will not be having QuiltBliss in 2016 so this is your only chance to have fun with us retreat-style!

Also as a side note, some of my camera's photos were corrupted somehow and I had a hard time getting anything edited and online this time. I know I wasn't able to save all of them, so if your quilt isn't in the Show and Tell feed on flickr, please know it's not personal, it's just Estrogen.

See you all in May!
