Don't Miss This!

Hey all you Cactus Patchers and "future Cactus Patchers" (guests), our next meeting - Tuesday, June 11th - will feature a technique that is as HOT as our Arizona summers!!!  It is called Hexagons, and specifically the 'Grandmother's Flower Garden' pattern.  It's an easy hand-sewing project that is versatile, fun, and oh so beautiful!!  Everyone is welcome to come and learn this exciting pattern that has been around for centuries, but - as they say, "Everything that's old is NEW again!!!" It was popular in England in the late 1700's, feel free to look it up on the internet under 'English Paper Piecing' and get just as excited as we are!!!  Hope to see you there!
Please bring:
1. Basic hand-sewing supplies
(scissors, pins, needles, black thread)
2. Any finger-food  snack (cookies, candy, cupcake, etc)
3. Any quilted item that you may have which uses English Paper Piecing

Note: Drinks and everything else needed will be provided
