We meet twice each month at the Glen Carbon Senior/Community Center. The monthly meeting is not all business: we open the doors at 6:30 for light snacks and socializing, followed by a presentation. The Sew-Ins are primarily a do-your-own-thing get together which can also be utilized for a community service project or a small class.
Meeting—3rd Tuesday at 7 pm

Ann is well-known for her art quilts, especially her current series The Things We Carry, and use of complex surface stitching. She plans to discuss her journey from traditional quilt maker to art quilter and bring samples of work showcasing her artistic changes through time.
Teresa will present From Scrapbooks to Collage
We will make a teeny tiny collage quilt of a sea turtle, elephant or flamingo with certified instructor Teresa Kasch. These little beauties finish at 16 X 20 and can be completed during the day. Check out Laura Heine's website. All supplies will be available at Jackman's in Fairview Heights except for fabric packs.Teresa will be making up fabric packs for the elephant and flamingo. If fabric packs for the Sea Turtle become unavailable from the Fiberworks website, Teresa will make those up as well. Deadline for ordering the fabric packs is February 1. On the Fiberworks homepage is a link to a YouTube video showing some basics but on a much larger project. If the style isn't yours, maybe it would be just right for a child or grandchild! Stay tuned for more details.
There is a video talking about the upcoming workshop on our facebook page
