Sign ups for First Saturday 2023

We will continue our First Saturday program in 2023.  Signups take place between Dec. 1, 2022 and March 1, 2023.  Saturday, January 7, February 4, etc.  9-11am   A new series of  9” blocks starts January 7, 2023.

We are excited to introduce you to Moon Rising for 2023!  Our new twelve-month block of the month features traditional, but unusual blocks in a modern setting. The finished quilt measures 96”x 96” and showcases Aged Muslin and Dapple Dots by Marcus Fabrics.

The finishing instructions start with Month 2.  On Month 4 you will need a Tri-Recs or similar ruler to make the Triangle in a square (pointy bits) around the blocks.

Starting January 7, you will receive the fabric for a 9” finished block each month.

Here’s how it works:

*  You will sign up by paying the non-refundable pattern fee of $50 (plus tax).

*  We will open the doors at 9:00 on the First Saturday, starting January 7, 2023.  You will pay $5.00 the first month you come, then it’s just $5.00 each month if you don’t get yours made that month, or free after the first month if you bring the completed block back between 9 and 11 on the First Saturday, Feb-Dec.

*  When you come in from 9-11 on the First Saturday, you’ll show your completed block at the door to get the free ticket (starting in February).  Then you can go to the demo area, where the new block will be highlighted and there will be an ongoing demonstration of how the block is put together.

*   Our quilt will contain 12 blocks.  You can finish it any way you’d like. We are making it like the pattern. Finishing instructions will be available on the second month, February 2023.

*  To get your free kit, you have to come yourself on the First Saturday between 9 and 11 am.

Please, no exceptions.  Don’t be late!  Don’t send someone else, not even your husband or mom or daughter, to get your free block! However, another person can pick it up for you for $5.00.

*  If you can’t come one Saturday, you can buy that month’s kit for $5.00.  Bring it the next month between 9 and 11 am and that month’s kit is free.  We can also mail kits out for $5, plus $1.99 shipping.
