This month's meeting will be held at the Westover Library in Arlington, VA from 10:30 am until 4:30 pm. 12 sewers have signed up and bought the pattern "Pockets to Go" in order to make a sewing caddy to hold their sewing notions. If you are not signed up for this, come meet with us and work on your own project. (or Linda still has 2 patterns available for purchase! Send an email to DCmodquilts at gmail dot com if you are interested!)

Sewing caddy participants should bring:
-Your sewing machine and usual accessories including zipper foot.
-Fabric, thread to match, zippers – we strongly suggest that you cut out your pieces
and label them beforehand.
-Marking pencil or marker that will show up on your fabrics.
-Hand sewing needle to sew on binding.
-You can substitute webbing for the fabric handles if you wish. The handle size of
2½” X 8 ½ ” is okay but change this to 11 ½” if you haven’t cut these out yet.
-Try to be there at the beginning of the meeting.
-You will receive the pattern you have paid for.
-black zippers and webbing if you desire.
Look in the Flickr group for some pictures for inspiration and add your own of the
fabric you are planning on using.
