January Meeting - Binding Demo

Our January meeting is coming up on Sunday, January 11, from 1-4pm at the Pittsburgh Project.  We will be voting on the 2015 leadership team and Karen will present a demo on her favorite methods for binding a quilt.  The rest of the meeting will be free sewing time, so bring any of your ongoing projects to work on.  Don't forget to bring something for show-and-tell!

Sewing down a binding by hand can be a tedious process.  Learn ways to complete your binding in an afternoon.  Karen Womack will demonstrate her favorite, fast ways to bind a quilt with professional results.
