Stilly Sew Days @ Haller Park, Arlington
Opportunities to sew with other like-minded people
are listed on our Calendar. Plan to sew with us soon!
Latest update of items delivered by the DVS team!
We have DVS quilts that need to be quilted. If you have time and can quilt one for us, please contact Sue Berndt or, let us know at a meeting and we can make arrangements to get the quilt to you.
American Hero Sew Day have moved to the third Tuesday of the month, when we will meet at 10:00 a.m. at Quilting Mayhem in Snohomish (1011 2nd St., Snohomish) to sew quilts for injured American soldiers.
Quilting Mayhem generously supplies us with a fabulous room upstairs for sewing all day. They provide irons, ironing boards, cutting boards and the use of their kitchen (microwave and refrigerator included) for only $5 per person. There's also an elevator to make it easy to haul our machines and supplies up and down the stairs.
Bring your own pattern and fabric. We will have some fabric if you prefer to work on that. If you prefer not to bring your sewing machine, we also need people to sit and sew on bindings and labels or iron for others as they sew, etc.
You may pack a lunch, eat at a nearby restaurant, or have sandwiches/pizza delivered.
An added bonus will be 15% off of all fabric and notions at Quilting Mayhem on our sew days!
AIS Receives Donations -- Thank you!
Generosity comes in all shapes and sizes and All in Stitches has been the recipient of yards and yards of batting from The Warm Company! This batting will be put in to warm quilts for our donation projects.
We have also received several private donations from persons in the community. They find us through the Internet or even the quilt show.
Many gifts were donated by our members for the Bingo night meeting, where we highlighted Domestic Violence Services of Snohomish County. As of the September 2017 meeting, we have donated 25 quilts to them!
Helping others, One Piece at a Time
A small group gathered at Becky Ray's house to sew for our Community Service (CS) Project.
Sewing with 2 1/2" & 5" Squares and scraps,
these ladies sewed from 9 AM to 4 PM,
with a break for lunch.
The product was 48 blocks sewn,
enough for a twin size quilt.
The blocks form X's & O's,
hugs and kisses for the recipient.
The group plans to meet again soon
to sew the blocks together,
add borders and layer the quilt!
Be on the lookout for more sewing days
so you can join in the fun!
