Fridays at The Quilt Patch

Fridays here at The Quilt Patch are pretty fun! We host a 'Sew With Flo' day each Friday from 10 - 4. For $15, you can spend the day sewing your little heart out!
The idea behind our Sew with Flo days is that sometimes people need a little help finishing a project, and there's no class for that, or they just need a helping hand getting started on a kit they bought. Or they just want to come out learn a new technique or spend the day laughing and enjoying some companionship!
And because Flo is such an amazing quilter, and you just can't possibly stump her, she is our Friday leader! And she is here to help you in any way you might require. Periodically we have theme days for our Fridays and today was paper piecing day!

Which means you can either bring a paper piecing project you require help with, or just come and get a lesson on how to do the technique. Or you can choose to just sew on whatever you like!
No pressure!

Even Jeanne was up there sewing away today! Quilting a brand new baby quilt we'll be offering! The quilt is called Bunny Hugs and we've whipped up a boy version and a girl version! Jeanne was quilting the boy one!

I ALWAYS go upstairs on Fridays, to say hello to all the ladies who come - some are regular Friday gals, others come and go depending on their time constraints....but the one consistent on Fridays.....THE FOOD!!! Oh my goodness! Look at todays treat!!

I know!! Sooooo delicious! There's always a huge amount of laughing going on up in the classroom, and these ladies are managing to get a lot of quilting done and able to move onto other projects. Our Sew With Flo Fridays have proven so popular that starting in the next session (watch for the newsletter around the end of the month) we will be holding some Sew With Flo Saturdays!
