If you consider yourself a new member--whether you joined last month or three years ago, whether you are a beginner quilter or an experienced one--we invite you attend our newly established "Newcomers Group." 


Wednesday, March 18th, from 7-9 will be the next meeting for the Newcomers Group. We will meet at Melrose Meadows Retirement Community,  located at 350 Dublin Dr., Iowa City. Mare Sorrow has reserved one of the meeting rooms for us. In addition to show and tell, we will have a number of topics to explore that evening. Members have the option to try 5 different ways to make half square triangles. Those interested can also try simple paper piecing. There will be a demonstration on Loc Bloc rulers for trimming blocks. Supplies will be furnished but we will need a few people to bring sewing machines. Please let Pam Ehrhardt know if you plan to attend and if you plan to bring a sewing machine. 319-351-6531 or email at
