The ECHOS program is offered to Mountain Top Quilters members during the afternoon following the general meeting. Instruction in different techniques or information on how to do various projects is presented. The classes are usually taught by an MTQG member free of charge or for a nominal fee to cover the cost of supplies incurred by the instructor.
In January ECHOS will provide instructions on creating a simple tote bag. This would be a GREAT donation for our boutique booth to raise money at the June quilt show. As always, ECHOS classes are free. You can participate in several ways:
1. If you’ve never made a bag and need help, you can sign up in December for a class, and will be given a materials list. The class will be in January right after the quild meeting so bring a light lunch. You would bring your sewing machine and all materials from the list. Our own Diane Stockhaus will teach the class.
2. If you don’t want to bring your machine and everything, you can just watch Diane construct the bag and take the directions and pattern home.
3. If you think you can just follow the directions and pattern, you can just pick them up.
Thanks, Marie Willison
You do not need to sign up for demonstrations, just come by, watch, and ask questions.
ATTENTION: All you very clever MTQG quilters. I know many of you have cute – novel – quirky or innovative items that you could share with us at an ECHOS class. Contact Marie Willison to schedule a class.
Remember, there are no fees for these classes –they are presented to us by the skillful members of our own Guild. So just come and get lots of new ideas and learn some interesting tips and quilting skills.
ECHOS is a Mountain Top Quilters Guild activity for and by our members.
