Quilters are Givers
Have you contributed your sewing skills during the quarantine to help anyone? We’d love to see pictures! I know many of us are doing masks, headbands, and more in addition to our normal quilting charities. Send pictures to email@example.com.
Quarantine Quilt Along
In case you missed it, our scheduled May speaker, Gudrun Erla did a live “Quarantine Quilt Along” of her Elvira pattern on Sunday, March 22. The sessions were recorded and posted on YouTube. Go to GE Designs to get the pattern (it was free but may no longer be), and then follow along the five sessions on YouTube below:
