Flash Quilt Day

March 23 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Please join us and help create the First Parish Harvest Moon quilts for 2024 and 2025!

>> Saturday, March 23, 10am – 3pm, in the First Parish Vestry.

Calling all quilters, sewists and interested folk!   We will sew together in the vestry offering two projects–\this is an opportunity for us to get a bit ahead of the Harvest moon Fair schedule.

1) Creating a brand new quilt:   We will be making a simple block.  These will be assembled and quilted for the 2025 Fall raffle quilt.  You will need to bring a working sewing machine (that you know how to use), sewing tools and thread.  We also need rotary cutting tools, rulers and mat (if you have them– and we can share!).  Extension cords and power strips are also a help.

2)  For Harvest Moon Fair  2024, we already have a completed quilt top (thank you Wendy Page) — this is ready for hand quilting–   we will prepare (sandwich) the quilt and begin hand quilting this quilt as our 2024 Harvest Moon Fair quilt.  This is an excellent opportunity for those new to quilting and willing to hand stitch.

Even if you don’t sew we welcome your company cutting and pressing.  Fabric welcome too (100 percent cotton please)–  we will also have a selection.  If you are unable to join us in person and want to help- please RSVP so we can include you too!

Questions? contact Carolyn Hodges (STAR@firstparish.info)

Rain date: Saturday April 13, same time and place.
