Sewing bibs for the Veterans

Prepare for an evening of sewing and conversation. We will
be making bibs for retired soldiers at VA convalescent homes
and retirement homes. There has been a request for these bibs.
We need fabric for the bibs. Material appropriate for men or
patriotic fabric is most needed. You will need to bring your
sewing machine and basic sewing supplies. Irons and ironing
boards will also be needed.
If you don’t want to sew bibs, bring whatever projects you have
to work on and spend an evening talking with friends.

Hawaiian Quilts with Nancy Lee Chong

 

Nancy Lee Chong made her first quilt, a queen-size Hawaiian quilt, in 1980 while living in
Hawaii. She began teaching her stress-free needle turn techniques and Hawaiian quilt making in
1982 when she and her husband and daughter moved to Seattle, Washington. Nancy’s degree
in education, her experience with all styles of appliqué, and her understanding of what a
beginner goes through, have made her one of the premier appliqué teachers in the United
States. Nancy’s quilts have appeared in numerous books and magazines, and she has traveled
across the USA and Canada, sharing her stress-free approach to needle turn appliqué with
beginners and experienced quilters. She is on the faculty at QuiltUnversity.com, where she
receives rave reviews for her Hawaiian, Celtic, Baltimore and Hand Quilting classes. Watch for
her new classes there in the future.

Nancy will be presenting a trunk show with traditional Hawaiian quilts and variations on
Hawaiian quilts including her line of  2 color appliqué quilts. Her patterns are on display at Quilty
Pleasures. Visit www.prqc.com to see their full selection of appliqué quilt patterns, and
videos; and to view Nancy’s calendar, résumé and class descriptions.
