Old enough to remember “The Mod Squad”? Young enough to think it sounds intriguing? Then we have a group for you. Yes, the modern quilting movement has grabbed The Calico Shoppe by the hand and we are not even kicking or screaming! Instead we are loving every thing about this "new" way to look at fabric, colors and patterns.
So, if this has caught your fancy too, come join us every other month starting in March. Each session we will discuss things like new designers, new patterns, blogs to visit, "empty" space, and anything else that will help bring you along on this journey with us. You will receive a pattern each session that can be made with 12 fat quarters and a background fabric. We will have fat quarter boxes of Kona solids for you to choose your 12 fats from. And, meeting every other month gives you plenty of time to finish your quilt so you can bring it for show and tell at the next meeting!
$30.00 for all 5 sessions
The Mod Squad will be meeting the first Monday of every other month starting March 4th at 9:30 am
the first Saturday of every other month starting March 2nd at 9:30 am
