1st Anniversary Party: What to Bring

Ok folks!  The BIG Party is only one week away!!  I thought you may want to start looking at your stash to plan for all the fun activities we have planned.  Participation is voluntary - so choose what you'd like to do.  The more the merrier...

Making Hexagons (Demonstration - and then group hand sewing)

Websites for English Paper Piecing Patterns & Templates         on this website, check out the free downloads for
 hints, pattern sheets, cutting guides and design sheets

Below is a template calculator.  Enter size and it will give you a template. 

Supplies for Making Hexagons - What to Bring
Fabric squares – (for a 3 inch hexagon, cut squares 4”??”
Scissors – small embroidery
Straight pins
Thread to baste with – different color than fabric (you want something to stand out – it will be removed
Templates (print out templates from links provided above)
Thread to match or blend with fabric.


1.  Strip Poker
To Bring:  at least 10 strips of fabric, 2.5" x Width Of Fabric (Jelly Roll strips or make your own!)
Each player antes up 1 strip, then the dealer deals everyone ONE card, and high card wins all the strips!  Deal again, and repeat!  Super Easy!  

2.  Left-Center-Right
If you would like to participate in the Left Center Right Game (LCR) you will need to bring three fat quarters.  These fat quarters will end up moving around from person to person throughout the game depending on how you roll the dice. The object of the game is to be the last one with a fat quarter. Only one person wins per game and it’s winner take all so please be prepared to leave either without your fat quarters or with a whole bunch more! It’s a game of luck so no skill besides rolling the dice is needed. It’s a lot of fun and very easy to learn.

Bring more FQs if you'd like to play more than one round of L-C-R.

3.  White Elephant FQ Exchange
White Elephant Exchange for ugly fabric! Bring a fat quarter of the
ugliest fabric you can find (wrap it or put it in a gift bag). We will
do a blind swap -- and remember, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
You may end up with something you love! ;-)

Reminder:  Please respond to the Evite if you haven't already - I would like everyone to have a head count who is bringing food.

PS  The potluck list is next to be emailed out...
