Wow! What a fun signup day. The lines were as long as ever, but moved quickly. We completely filled our 3 sessions in the 1st hour! That's never happened before. So, what happens now? If you didn't come or call on Saturday to get a spot and still would like to be a member of Scrap Tamers, we will see if we can fill one more session. Right now we are taking a waiting list to see if we have enough interest to schedule a 2:30 session. If you are interested, call the shop and get your name on the waiting list. We'll see what we can do.
So what makes this club so popular that some quilters showed up at 5:45 to register at 9:30? I think it must be all about having fun, being the first to know what's new at the shop, sharing with a group of quilters and learning to make quilts more efficiently and accurately. Maybe something about using up your stash too!
This is going to be a fun year. We're working from a program called Stash Pot Pie. This is a fun program with monthly quilt patterns that work really well for scraps. We'll offer tips for piecing these fun quilts.
We'll also offer a mystery quilt as part of the Scrap Tamers Club. This lap size quilt will also be scrappy. You can either use your stash or pre-order one of our specially chosen bundles. If you weren't at signup to see the 2 bundles we picked, we took photos on Saturday.
The first is the Black and white bundle with a red accent. The second is the batik bundle with dark and medium batiks and a soft turquoise accent.
You can look at the signup sheet with all the information on our website at www.gladcreationsquilts.com. So let us know if you are interested in a 2:30 session and we'll see what happens.
