New Block of the Month Ready to start!

This week on Tuesday at 1PM and Friday at 6PM we will be having the introductory meeting of BOM at Frank's Sewing Center in Waukesha.  Anyone can attend.  There is no cost for the meeting.  You will have an opportunity to find out the details on the next BOM program.  If you are not able to attend here is the information:

Block of the Month Program

Frank’s Sewing Center

The new Block of the Month Program will begin at Frank’s Sewing Center in October 2010. The group meets at the store on the second Tuesday at 1PM or the second Friday at 6PM. Each month you will get a block or section of the quilt to make. The program will run through Nov of 2011. There will be no meeting in July and August of 2011 and the last meeting is a celebration meeting. At the meeting you receive instructions on how to make the block, there is show and tell from the members and Wendy will talk about what is new in the store. There are often discounts that are available in the store just to Block of the Month members on the day of the meeting. Wendy occasionally has other surprises like a little pattern or she organizes an exchange of fabric within the group. This is a picture of the Quilt as done in the pattern and  in the color way the Wendy has chosen (Pictured here in its unfinished state!).

The pattern is from Wing and a Prayer Design. This is a queen size quilt, 96” by 106”. There is additional information on the website, http://wingandaprayerdesign.com/images/king-size-BOM.pdf to make it a king size quilt. The cost of the pattern is $24 and includes an 8” by 10” color picture of the quilt. The pattern is available at Frank’s Sewing Center. You must purchase the pattern to be a part of the program. You may choose to buy the pattern and use your own fabric and the cost of that is $45. If you want to use the fabrics Wendy has chosen the cost will be $180. There will be an additional cost if you make it king size and if you want to purchase the outer border fabric for either size quilt. You may also pay by the month at $15 a month. Sign up and payment is done with Wendy directly. Wrieves@aol.com

Sign up and be part of the fun!
