Quilt-along Calendar

Quilt-along Calendar

Written by:

FOMO.  The Fear of Missing Out.  It’s a powerful motivator, especially when the activity involved is creative, inspirational and fun.

As quilters, participating in a quilt-along can provide us with camaraderie, an opportunity to learn new techniques and tips, and the focus to get something made.

While there will be other adventures added along the way, this is what we've already got on our calendar for the next twelve months.

There will be more information coming along the way as a few of the dates might change a tiny bit depending on when the collections will be in shops.  And we're sure we'll be adding to this in the coming months because we do love a quilt-along.  (It's our best reason for sewing at work!) 

Let us know if you have any ideas, especially if there is something you'd like us to add to our list.  We are planning to have a mix of short- and long-term QALs, some that are collection and/or pattern specific, and a few that are simply about having fun.

Because who wants to miss out on that?

Stay well and have a terrific weekend.
