We warmly invite members of the quilting community to attend our program meetings. All visitors will be required to pay a fee of $5 at the door. The guest fee may be applied towards a membership fee that day. We meet the 2nd Wednesday each month, coffee at 9:30, meeting from 10 AM - 12 noon, at the North Chevy Chase Christian Church, 8814 Kensington Parkway, Chevy Chase, MD 20815 (click here for directions.) Workshops require registration in advance of the event.
|Winter Weather Policy. NeedleChasers follows the lead of the Montgomery County Public Schools: if school is cancelled, our NeedleChasers meeting for that day is also cancelled. If the schools have a delayed opening, our NeedleChasers meeting will take place at it's regular time.
We will have our annual holiday potluck lunch at Harlow Hall starting at 11:00. Start thinking about what culinary creation you want to show off this year. We will be starting a sign-up at the October meeting. Members can bring any holiday quilts or wall hangings they have to the luncheon to decorate the room!
January 9, 2019: Demo Day - 10 AM to Noon in Harlow Hall
We have an exciting line-up of demos from our very own members. You will learn how to make the traditional hand pieced Cathedral Windows block by machine, taught by Coralyn Colladay. Jan Danis will give you tips for the proper way to make a hanging sleeve for your quilt. And Linda Fasules will show you a very clever way to take your blocks off your design wall (or design floor) and head straight to the machine to strip piece the blocks together in a time saving manner. Three demos not to be missed!
