Deadline for completed calendar quilts or other items is September 15. We hope to have photography and printing done in time for the November meeting. An order form will be distributed in August so be thinking about the quantity you would want to order.

Midwest Fiber Fest Trip

At the Diva's meeting the other night we discussed having a group outing to the Midwest Fiber Fest on July 19. It will be held at the McHenry Co College, 8900 US Hwy 14 in Crystal Lake IL from 9AM-7PM. Admission is $7. There is an art exhibit as well as at least 40 vendors

Anyone interested in carpooling can meet at the Hobby Lobby parking lot at Rt 64 and 59 in West Chicago at 8:30 AM. Sharon Malec is willing to keep a list of those interested in attending, so we know who we are waiting for. Please email me (Cheryl) for her contact info if you need it.

July Meeting Info

Here's what we decided to do at the July meeting.
July meeting: Art design/fusing.
Background fabric of your choice. Minimum size 9 x 12.
One 8 x 10 piece of fabric with fusable web already on the back. This fabric should be or should "read"
as a solid. Any color.
We'll need a few irons and ironing boards.

We will pass the solid pieces around, cut a geometric shape of our choosing, pass fabrics again, cut, etc.
When done cutting we'll design & fuse the pieces to the background. You'll have the start of a masterpiece.
