Tips, Tricks and Techniques

DO YOU HAVE a quilting tip to share?

What about a special or favorite tool, or perhaps a trick to doing something quilty?

If you do, don’t be shy.

Please bring your tool/trick/technique to the September 6, 2016 meeting.

This is just a casual sharing. If it’s a tool, please bring it and tell us why it’s special, or if you want to show us a technique/trick and bring an example.

Our meeting program will focus on sharing each member’s tool/ tip/trick for the group.

The board will lead off with some of their favorites to get it all going.

See you at the Tuckahoe Public Library, 1901 Starling Drive, Henrico, VA 23229!
