Block of the Month (also called BOM)
A block of the month allows you to work on a quilt with other quilters who are all
doing the same project at the same time. Some like to get together at our many
open sews so they can work together. Does that sound like fun? Read on!
Each month, you'll receive a kit containing fabrics & pattern you'll need to make that
AND it's more than just stopping by to pick up your monthly block kit. We also give
you an informal presentation relating to the specific theme of the
block-of-the-month, including a recipe to try that hails from the era being discussed.
See below for specific details.
If you can't make it in to our shop, we can always mail the kits to you. Phone

|Our Historical Block-of-the-Month Series
The Victorian Lady: Walking in Her Shoes
beginning Saturday, September 7th.
Focus: The American Victorian Lady from all walks of life
from 1876 - 1920.
This era saw rapid & dramatic change - it started with
most people living in the country & ended with most
people living in the city.
How did the Victorian American woman deal with these
changes? What was going on with fashion, colors,
etiquette, child rearing, & relationships? We'll find out
about her artistic contributions & other aspects of her life.
Each month for 12 months we will cover all of this along
with interesting history, a recipe & tasting from this era
and (of course) blocks in various sizes using colors popular
in the era.
Cost: $18.87/month (when tax is added, that's one twenty
dollar bill) each month for a year.
There are 2 extra additional fee months:
blocks & all of the connecting blocks for the entire
quilt. This gives you a head start & you've the entire
year to work on these blocks!
We had a great start! You can still join us
at the next meeting--October 5 at 10:30a!
