Coastal Quilters Workshops Convene Saturday, Sept. 20

Meeting Site: Scotty Culp Auditorium
565 Cassia Blvd., Satellite Beach

Time: 9:30 - 3:00

It's Fall! Forida's falls aren't yellow leaves and frost on the pumpkins, but they ARE wonderful days to stay cool sewing. September's sewing will center on small items which will be sold in our Marketplace Booth at Satellite Beach Founder's Day November 1 Celebration. We have group quilts to complete; we have selected some super QAKH-type quilts which our audience treasures; and we will have useful items such as neck coolers, fabric coil baskets, phone carriers, poinsettia sculptured "bowls," snap bags, small zippered "keeping bags" for coins or IPods...and anything else you come up with.

You can participate by simply coming with your sewing machine and general sewing supplies... we will supply patterns, fabrics, etc. If you would like to sew at home and need fabric, contact margie@cfl.rr.com. CQ owns a great deal of good fabric for these purposes and would love to see it used.
You can also come with your walking foot and quilt some quilts!

Not a member but want to "check out the group?" Feel free to come an participate.

QAKH Focus Continues

Yes, we are still working on QAKH quilts for our homeless and hurting Brevard children. We have kits that need sewing and quilting. Distribution begins in October when we will welcome COOL weather!

Click on the video below for the August quilt-in. Though the woman at the beginning is identified as Sheryl Milner, QAKH's coordinator, it is actually Margie Engel. Margie will quickly tell you that Sheryl is much better looking, and younger too! The real treat is seeing Lydia Howald, one of our senior campers.

 

 


Satellite Beach Founders Day is coming...

Look for the fun of a parade and a Marketplace at the Schecter Recreation Center on South Patrick Drive... we will have goodies for sale. This is where you do your Christmas shopping for those one-of-a-kind items.
