Quilters Group Gets Going
Wednesday, January 16, 2013 • Posted January 17, 2013

On Saturday, January 12, the new quilters’ group in Blanco had their second meeting. Fifteen local quilters, ranging from beginners to experts, had a delightful time visiting with new friends and learning new techniques while working on a pinwheel heart wall hanging. The Uptown Blanco Ballroom provided an ideal place to set up for sewing and later lunch.

Meeting at 9:00 a.m. on the second Saturday of each month, the goals of fellowship and education are central to this group's purpose.

There will be a monthly challenge block and a mystery quilt as well as seminars and field trips upcoming.

At the next meeting, on February 9, members will meet, exchange blocks, and work on ongoing projects. This is an excellent opportunity for anyone wanting to learn to quilt or improve their skills.

Any quilters or crafters interested in becoming part of this group, are welcome to attend and bring "show and tell" items or current projects on which you are working.
