Friday, Feb. 17 - Crystal Quilters Workshop.  10 a.m. until ?? at the Mountain Villa Mobile Home Park clubhouse, 1099 Mountain Villa Dr., Enumclaw, on the lower level.  We will be learning how to make crumb blocks using the leftover scraps from the quilt show.  This will also be a potluck, with soup provided by Barbara.  Please bring your own bowl and spoon and you may bring a dish to share.  Come for the whole day, or for just part of the day.  You can also bring your own project to work on, volunteer to iron or square up blocks or just come to learn/watch and egg us on to use up those scraps!  Please bring your usual sewing kit, including fabric scissors.

* Keep working on your bowls (fiber or otherwise) for Empty Bowls.  They need to be turned in by Saturday Feb. 4, 2012 at either the Arts Alive Gallery or Green River Community College.

* Are you doing the Pet Robin?  Step 1 for February is Applique, Step 2 for March is Fabric Manipulation.

* How is your Quilt Challenge coming??  Go to Quilting Arts (click here) for inspiration.  (It is the first item in the second row, "Doorway to Imagination".)  You need to join QA (which is free and easy to do) to download the pdf file, which is the magazine pages showing the quilts that were made for this reader challenge.  You will need the Adobe Acrobat reader to read this file, which is also a free download.  Click here to get the Adobe Acrobat reader.
