Small & Scrappy Club



There will be "Small & Scrappy Clubs" popping up in quilt shops next year. When you join a club at a shop there will be monthly classes to make some of the quilts from the book. In addition, shops will make and sell kits for some of the quilts. What's more fun than meeting and sewing with others who like the same kinds of quilts? Talk to your local quilt shop about getting a club started near you.


If you're a shop owner, visit the Martingale booth at Quilt Market in Houston this week and pick up a flyer for more info on how to get a Small & Scrappy club going at your shop next year. (I will not be going to Market so talk to Martingale people when you're there.) Or, you can contact me in mid-November and I will have everything you need to know about starting this 6-month club. 



This type of club is for shops only. But, never fear -  come next year, we'll be doing some online sew-alongs for quilts in the book in my small quilt groups. All you need to do to join in is buy the book. Which little quilt will you want to try making first?

My local quilt shop does not participate and, unfortunately, there aren't any close shops to go to :( I'd love to join in but not possible where I live. I love your small quilts and have all your books but it would be fun to sew with like-minded gals.

I am waiting for a blue club of mins......arms folded and toe tapping......I unfortunately know the Florida shops near me are too enmeshed in Modern quilts and the one that would have been a candidate closed a few months ago. Up here in Wisc will have to see. Maybe we need to start a FaceTime small group. I nominate Sue B as Mini Mom in Charge. I hope she bakes good cookies.

Way to go Kathy.

Jane,
Count me in the mini online group... I second the nomination of Sue B as group mom, Jane nj/wi If Sue doesn't want to make cookies I will gladly supply recipes for my family's favorite goodies to members every month.
I am sure my lqs will not be doing this. Monthly commitments are hard with snowbirds, and most of those who stick around make large quick cut quilts.
My book is on order, let me know which day of the month I need to have my recipe ready.

Looking forward to your new book and making more small quilts.

Not that I'm jealous at all (!) but, here in the UK, the book isn't due until next March. I shall enjoy reading about it until then.

We will be working thru your book in Chesterfield Virginia beginning in January. The shop is called Stitch by Stitch and is just south of the police station on hwy 10. Call the shop if interested in joining us! I've been leading a monthly miniature group for about 7 years.
