BLOCK OF THE MONTH 2020 -TreeMendous Joy Tree
We will be doing a 6 month Block of the Month, starting Feb. 1, 2020 at 9am. Sign up now to be able to start in February. We will need time to prepare the kits and get patterns ordered. The fee is $10 to start, then $16.50 for each of the 6 months. You can choose one of 2 color ways for your project. If you keep up with the project, you will have a lovely Christmas wallhanging measuring 50" x 60" ready to be quilted in time to hang, or gift to someone special, at Christmas. The presentation usually lasts about 20-30 minutes. It entails questions and answers about that months assignment. We encourage everyone to show and tell about projects you have completed. When you show projects you have purchased from The Village Mercantile, you will receive a free fat quarter of your choice (1 per meeting). I announce the schedule of upcoming events, show new products in the store, and encourage everyone to keep sewing!!! I usually share a joke at the end of the presentation, which seems to be a favorite part of the morning. You are welcome to stay after the presentation to shop, or even stay and sew on the mezzanine if we don't have a class or meeting scheduled. It can be a great day of sewing and visiting with other quilters!
