We are meeting at a new facility for the foreseeable future beginning with our September 1, 2020 meeting. It is called The Gathering Place (affiliated with Warrenton Baptist Church) and it is located at 650 Alwington Blvd. From the town of Warrenton, go past Wal-Mart and take the right that goes in front of Home Depot, which is Alwington Blvd. Follow that road all the way around, past Appleton and Campbell on the left, and past Brumfield Elementary School on the right. After stopping at the stop sign, continue on that road and it will dead end into the parking lot of The Gathering Place. It is a fantastic place, with lots of room and lots of light. If the weather is good, we can sit outside on the patio for our social time at 6:30pm and our meeting will be called to order at 7pm. Hope to see you there!
Unfortunately Bethel United Methodist isn’t currently available due to Covid-19, so for the time being we will be meeting at Jeffersonton Baptist Church, 18498 Springs Rd, Jeffersonton, VA 22724. We can’t wait to see you Tuesday, August 4, 2020. We will meet at 6:30 pm for social time (keeping social distancing in mind) and the meeting will begin at 7:00 pm. We are looking forward to being able to get together again while staying safe and please remember your mask!
Dee has donated this quilt which was to be raffled off at Retreat. Before going through with the plan, Sky Meadows was interested in some quilts for their buildings. This quilt now resides there with acknowledgement that is was donated by our guild.
One of our recent Community Service projects is making quilts for the Warrenton Dialysis Center. Several are ready to be delivered to the Center, and were shown at our November business meeting. More are on the way, and photos will be posted as they are finished.
On October 29 and 30 we will participate in the Fall Farm Festival at Sky Meadows State Park. The Festival is held every year on the weekends in October, with a different emphasis for every weekend. We are included in the history weekend. Come visit us there.
On Tuesday, October 18, and Saturday, October 22, Rachel Paul will teach a two-part “Floating T-Shirt Quilt” class.
The class is free for FCQ members and $25 for non-members.
The Tuesday class will be at our regular program meeting and will consist of an overview of the project, cutting the t-shirts, fusing them to lightweight interfacing, and cutting framing and sashing fabrics.
Saturday’s class will be at Bethel United Methodist Church starting at 9:30, and we will be assembling the quilts.
If interested in taking the class, contact Paula Lorfano for the supply list and instructions. There is some preparation needed before the Tuesday class.
