June 2016 Meeting Recap

New Date! New Location!

Our June Meeting was held at our new location! The First Alternative Co-op South Store has allowed us to use their community room on the SECOND THURSDAY of each month for our monthly meetings and again on the FORTH SATURDAY for our sew days!  

Modern Hexagon Quilting with Caroline

Big thanks to Caroline for sharing her love of hexies with us! She shared her tips, tricks + supply list, how to make the hexagons and how to prepare and quilt your top! 

If you were't at the meeting but would like a hand-out please see Sarah and she can get you a copy!  THANK YOU CAROLINE!
