Sisters of the Square Group

In this past year we've created a new group here in the store called the "Sisters of the Square". This is for anyone with the square in a square ruler by Jodi Barrows. Need help with a block? Not sure how to use your ruler? Want to socialize while you work on Square in a Square projects? This is the group for you! 

We meet each month on the 1st Thursday in the upstairs classroom, and classes are free. Currently we are working on learning these blocks in 9 month Block of the Month series:

Each meeting we learn one of the blocks and give you our own fabric scraps to learn with. The blocks made with our scraps go towards the Charity Quilts we make for the cop cars and cancer center. If you want to use your own fabric feel free to bring it to work towards making a quilt of your own.
