Here’s what will happen in November:

polka-dots Fat Quarter Swap is Polka Dots.

Bring a fat quarter and receive a chance to win all of the fat quarters.  For every fat quarter you bring, you will receive one chance to win.

A fat quarter of fabric is a one-fourth yard cut that usually measures 18″ x 22″. To create a fat quarter, cut a half-yard of fabric first (18″ along the fabric’s lengthwise grain) and then cut that piece in half at its midpoint .

pincushionThe Challenge is to make a pincushion.

Gift giving seasons are approaching and we would like to suggest some ideas for gifts.  Pin cushions are great for your friends who sew.  Make some pincushions and bring them for show and tell in November.
