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!!!
