First Saturday

First Saturday 2013 80" by 101"

Saturday, Feb. 2, March 2, April 6, etc. 8:30-11am
A new series starts February 2013

We will be making 12” blocks in two different colorways: Burgundy and Cream or Blue and Cream. The quilts measure 80" by 106", a large full size, or you can make a wider border to get queen size.

FOR 2013: You will register for the First Saturday Club ahead of time by paying the $12.00 (+ tax) pattern fee. You have to register and pay the fee ahead of time to participate. We need to know how many patterns we need! You can start the Club any time after it begins, because we can get more patterns as needed.

Here's how it works:

* You will sign up by paying the pattern fee of $12.00, hopefully before Jan. 22.
* We will open the doors at 8:30 on the First Saturday, starting February 2, 2013. You will pay $7 the first month you come, then it’s free if you bring the completed block back, or just $7.00.
* When you come in from 8:30-11 on the First Saturday, you’ll show your completed block at the door to get the free ticket (starting in March). Then you can go to the demo area, where there will be a display of new items, a small ongoing demonstration, and a staff member highlighting that month's block.

There are a few conditions:

* If you want to make a block in more than one colorway, that‘s great. But, you only get 1 free kit a month. You must pay for the others. You will only need to pay one pattern fee.
* To get your free kit, you have to come yourself on the First Saturday between 8:30 and 11 am. No exceptions. Don't be late! Don’t send someone else to get your block!
* If you can't come one Saturday, you can buy that month's kit for $7.00 while supplies last. You can call us and we'll be happy to save a kit for you. Bring it to the next month's class and that month's kit is free.
* The fabrics should be available through the end of 2013, so you should be able to purchase extra fabrics as needed this year, unlike in other years where the entire quilt is very scrappy.
