Table Topper Workshop (more 60 deg ruler)
Date: Sat, Oct 20, 2018
Location: Masonic Lodge, 40 1st St, Reno
Janet Inda will do a reprise of her 60 degree ruler placemats and table toppers – this time with some new twists in the design using Triangle Frenzy patterns.
Some may remember the fun we had with 60 degree ruler to make tumbling blocks and the table runner (border prints were great). There have been new twists to the original use of triangles and/or parallelograms – as seen by the plethora of “Triangle Frenzy” patterns (Swirl, Hexagon, Runner, Whirlwind). Bring your 60 degree ruler, plenty of fabric (with a natural type of ‘strip’ or make your own from strips), rotary cutter, pattern of your choice, sewing machine or serger (and general sewing supplies). Janet will go over the pattern particulars and the various designs that you could try from the pieces you cut. She went to town at Camp Sew & Sew (check out our picture album from the “photos” page!

Join us at our annual sewing retreat. We’ll again have that beautiful room, Inspiration Point, that looks out over the lake with huge windows, so join us for some fun and finish your various projects. The final price will reflect the extra day of sewing – but all felt that we all too often ran out of time and wanted the extra day. HERE is the application form. Fees increase after Feb 1, 2019 (from $425 to $450 for members for 5 days, 4 night stay with meals). SAME price as last year but with the ability to move into your room on Sunday!! We are trying to encourage other chapters to participate but will limit our total to 24 participants. Sign up early; payment guarantees you’re IN for the event (all payments are due by Feb 1 postmark).
As before, we’ll be setting up the Inspiration workroom from 3pm onwards. We’ll have all the keys to rooms available after 3pm on Sunday. Our first meal will be Sunday dinner (6pm) and end with Friday breakfast. We must exit our rooms by 11am and the workroom by noon on Friday.
