It's 2018! Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season.
Time flies when you are having fun! Do you remember when you were younger, your mother telling you that time goes by fast as you get older? You probably laughed. But, boy was she right!
We are excited about the Programs Schedule and look forward to the demos, speakers and workshops.
Three comfort quilt demos will be shown and kits will be available for members to make for a child or adult lap size quilt. The kits are precut for the top.
This will be a nice change of pace as we have Spice Merchants of Falmouth showing their variety of teas, culinary spices and rubs and proprietary spice blends. What a great way to be comfy and cozy in the winter!
A demo by Marge Overholtz for crayon painting on fabric. At the Holiday Luncheon, Marge showed us the creative child's quilt that she made, using crayons.

Many of us have seen her booth and purchased items at various quilt shows. Quilt-ish sells Cape Cod and North East themed panels and fabrics. Some of the proceeds of her panels go to worthy causes at the Cape. The items at Quilt-ish are fun, colorful and different and give us that wonderful Cape Cod vibe.
