World Wide Quilting Day
Saturday, March 21, 2015
A “Scrap Crazy Stash Swap” will be hosted by Village Fabrics & Crafts at the Community Center in Paradise. Several entirely different quilt designs can be made using this method. Bring your leftover 2 1/2” strips, 5” charm squares, 10” squares and fat quarters to swap. Make your quilt entirely scrappy or color themed; it is your choice. With all the sharing, you will have lots of color choices! A continental breakfast, dinner and snacks is included in the $35.00 fee and preregistration by March 1^st is required.
We have fun, complete lots of projects, reduce our stash and it is FREE! These are open classroom days for you to come and stitch together. Knit, crochet, quilt, embroider or sew the project of your choosing. We have coffee, tea, fridge and microwave; come for the day or as your schedule permits. Bernina sewing machines are available for rent. Call in advance to reserve a sewing machine.
Dates for the remainder of the year are available at the shop and will be posted here in future emails.
A limited number of Bernina sewing machines are available for rent if you would like to sew or quilt and can't bring yours. The charge is $6.00 for up to 4 hours and $10.00 for the day. Please call ahead to reserve one.
The regular dates for Stashbusters are the *2nd Saturday, the 3rd Thursday and the last Wednesday of each month and available year round. Occasionally dates may need to be changed due to holidays, etc. If so, the new dates will be posted. Stashbusters starts at 10 am and continues during regular shop hours.
