July Meeting

Join us for our meeting on July 1st, 2018 from 1:00-4:00pm at our new location:

Holy Spirit Parish
608 Farragut St
Pittsburgh, PA 1520 .

The meeting area is spacious, has plenty of tables and chairs, is super clean, and has tons of parking - the street out front serves as a parking lot.

Nikki will be talking about Free Motion Quilting!

The quilt top is all pieced, and now it's time to quilt it. Do you struggle to settle on a quilting design? Find it hard to decide on a design that you feel confident executing? Nikki will talk about choosing quilting designs with a wide range of ideas for all ability levels. If you have a quilt top that has you stumped, bring it to guild and we can discuss some quilting ideas!

We will have time at the end for a free motion quilting troubleshooting session. Nikki will talk about common pitfalls, and feel free to bring your own questions!
