Coastal Carolina Fair is Returning

The 2021 Coastal Carolina Fair will be open from Friday, October 28, through Sunday, November 7.  The Guild, along with other local crafts organizations, has a table in the Creative Arts Building every year. We “man” the table during the Fair in order to promote the art of quilting, which is part of our mission statement. Volunteers are encouraged to bring quilting projects to work on while there.  Machines are allowed and an electrical drop will be provided. Information about the Guild, and our upcoming quilt show, will be available to distribute to visitors. Volunteers will be given a pass for each day they volunteer. Arrangements to get passes to Guild members will be planned as we get closer to the Fair dates.

Normally, sign up sheets are available at our meetings. Since we are still meeting virtually, sign up will be by email on a first-come, first-served basis.  Anyone interested should contact Pat Schneider at dditchquiter@gmail.com. Following are the times/shifts available for Cobblestone members to volunteer at our table.

Workshops

2021-05-03 Posted on Facebook by Julie Beam Sander- Friday, July 9, 2021 Sulky will present a workshop making the “Pumpkin Market Tote.” 

As I mentioned at last week’s meeting, sign-ups are now being taken for the Pumpkin Market Tote Virtual “all day” workshop with Sulky for Friday, July 9th beginning at 11:00 AM. The workshop (including the kit containing all the necessary supplies) will be $40. Please send a check written to “Cobblestone Quilters Guild” to my home address: Julie Sander, 2643 River Bluff Lane, Mount Pleasant, SC 29466. We will need to send in the check in early June to give time for Sulky to ship the kits and for me to distribute them in time for the workshop. So, I would like to set the deadline for registering and payment for the workshop of no later than May 31st. Please contact me (If you haven’t already done so) to register for the workshop and all registrants should send your checks out ASAP. I look forward to working on a Fall project in July, and our Virtual Sew-in last month was so much fun! Sulky has indicated that there will be prizes given during Thursday’s program and Friday’s workshop! I hope you will consider joining us for this fun workshop!

Quilters Day Out

See the new page on the menu labeled

Quilters Day Out/Quilters Day In

for details of upcoming sewing day programs.

During our Quilters Day Out our members gather to sew together, usually on a Saturday. These occur three times a year. There is often a planned activity, but sewers are welcome to bring their own projects. Contact Karen Kendo directly, or through our Contact Us page, for any questions.

TAKING A CLASS – IMPORTANT THINGS TO KNOW AND DO!

We have had a great influx of new members and I’ve been fielding a lot of questions so I thought it might be timely to publish information on our classes and what a student should bring to class.

  1. Unless stated otherwise – your sewing machine in good working order.  All accessories (especially the power cord!) and your manual is also important.
  2. Basic sewing/quilting notions to include – needles (new machine and hand), scissors/snips,  rotary cutter, cutting mat, rulers, marking tools, pins, etc.
  3. Iron and ironing surface
  4. Utility power cord with multiple plug-ins.

When you sign up and pay for a class you will receive a supply list with all pertinent information from the instructor.  If you sign up at a meeting you will be handed a hard copy of the supply list.  If you sign up by email you can either pick up the hard copy at the next meeting or you can receive it via email.  Prior to class I try to email everyone with updates and another copy of the supply list but that is not guaranteed.  The supply list is NOT available on the web as it is proprietary property of the instructor and should only be available to those who have paid for the class.  I will always gladly email another list to you.

It is important that you read the supply list well in advance of class so that you can procure all of the required materials for a successful class.  If you have questions please contact the Guild Programs Coordinator directly, or through the Contact Us page and we will contact the instructor.  It is not good policy to have many different people contacting the instructors.

Preparation is the key to having an enjoyable and successful class experience!!
