June 20-22, 2018: Aunt Philly’s Rag Rugs!

Aunt Philly will be presenting a “trunk show” to the guild on June 20th during our meeting.   She will be holding workshops for our guild as noted in the schedule below.  Aunt Philly will teach as many workshops as we can schedule for her.  Please invite anyone you think might be interested in participating in this workshop because no sewing skills are required.  Each workshop session is limited to a maximum of 8 participants.
The first workshop will be held June 20th from 12:00 – 4:00 pm BEFORE the meeting at Lee Hill Community Center.
On Thursday, June 21st, Diane will host a workshop at her home from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm.   Bring your own lunch and enjoy learning Aunt Philly’s technique while you are close to nature.
On Thursday, June 21st, an evening workshop will be held at Linda’s home from 4:00 – 8:00 pm or possibly 5:00 – 9:00 pm to try and accommodate our working members.
On Friday, June 22nd, our Heart & Soul group is hosting a workshop at the Snow Library from 1:00 to 5:00 pm.   You are welcome to bring your lunch or snack to eat while you are working.    Please note that there are a limited number of spaces left for this workshop.
There is also the possibility of adding additional workshops on Friday morning or Saturday morning or afternoon if there are enough people interested!
The workshop scheduled for June 27th at the Snow Library from 1:00 – 5:00 pm has been canelled!  Aunt Philly will be leaving the area on Sunday, June 24th!
Please email Tracy Day at trayday516@aol.com or call 540-424-5989 to reserve a spot or ask any questions.  Money will be collected at the workshop by Phyllis (Aunt Philly).
The workshop fee is $35.00.
The pattern is $10.00 and the tool is $3.00.
 An optional fabric kit can be purchased for $60.00 (The kit contains 10 yards of batik needed for her standard 20″ x 36” oval rug.)
If you want to use your own fabric stash you will need 10 yards torn into 2” strips along the LENGTH of the fabric. You can use any length of fabric you have in your stash (1 1/2 yard sections work best) You don’t need to bring all 10 yards to the class, but you should have at least a couple yards to get started.
If you would like to make a smaller project that uses less fabric, you could make a placemat with 1 3/4 yards of fabric or a table runner with 4 yards of fabric
Note: Your fabrics don’t have to be batiks.  However, if the fabrics are not batiks, you will need to press your strips in half lengthwise so there is no backside showing.
You will need to have some of your strips torn before you come to class.
