CMQG Gives Back to the Community at June & July Meetings

As many of you may know, Kathy Gordon is very involved with The James Stitching Sisters and she has kindly agreed to host our June and July meetings at the Sewing Center!  Thanks Kathy for all of your hard work in pulling this together.
I know everyone in the CMQG is looking forward to giving back to the community using our quilting skills!  All of the meeting details are included below:
The James Stitching Sisters Sewing Center
289 Cramer Creek Court
Dublin, OH
The sewing center is just off Frantz Road with easy access from I-270 for those of you that come from outlying areas.

Psst...It's also nearby Red Rooster Quilts, if the need for some fabric shopping strikes before the meeting! Red Rooster has a great selection of pre-cuts, quilt kits, and modern basics.  They also carry traditional fabrics, so there's a little something for everyone. I feel the need to plan a fabric road trip, but that's a story for another day...
When:THURSDAY, June 26th
6-9 PM
THURSDAY, July 24th
6-9 PM
What to bring?Since we're meeting a little earlier than usual, please feel free to bring a snack to share. You know Kathy...she's always looking to have a party!
What not to bring? 
Due to the danger of loose pins, hot irons, ironing boards that could tip over, etc., we ask that you leave your children at home where they will be safe.       
What to expect?
 Kathy has lots planned for us to keep us busy all night, including:
  • tour of the center...but you can get a sneak peak of it here on Kathy's blog-- Kwilty Pleasures.
  • long-arm sewing machine quilting  
  • regular sewing machine piecing
  • cutting kits
  • labeling quilts  
  • making binding
  • sandwiching quilts for kwilting
  • and more!!!!
If you cannot stay for the entire time of the meetings, please stop in and check out the facility, have a snack, and find out how you can help...even from home!
To learn more about The James Stitching Sisters, please visit their website. 
We're looking forward to seeing everyone for a few nights of charity sewing this summer!  Thanks again Kathy for all you've done to organize and host.


  1. Hope everyone will consider coming...even if just to see the place and the enormity of what this charity gives to the community.

  2. Kathy, Should we bring our machines and basic sewing supplies?

  3. All sewing supplies including rotary cutters, mats, rulers, sewing machines are at the sewing center. JUST bring YOU and a SNACK.
