Thursday, June 14 – Project Pincusion – Our July guest speaker is Donna diNatale, a board member of the International Quilt Study Center and Museum. Pincushions are being donated to the gift shop and then sold to raise money for future exhibits. We would like to send Donna home with a basket full of new pincushions for this worthy project. We are very excited that Nichole Dakiewicz (Modern Handcraft) has give BVQG permission to use her fun Hexie pincushion tutorial for this project. Please watch her YouTube tutorial at the link below. Attendees need to bring their sewing machine, scissors, pins, fabric glue, needle, thread, and cotton charm squares. Bring wool felt pieces if you have them to make small hexies for the project. Bring fabric glue or glue sticks if you have them. BJ will supply wool felt, batting and extra bottles of fabric glue for those who don’t have them. Feel free to make other pincushion designs at this Sit and Stitch. We hope to have another new pattern available.
