Please join us for a fun and productive UFO day at the Antioch township center from 9 AM to 5 PM where we sew and make new friends. Any member of the Northern Lake County Quilters Guild is welcome to attend. Friends of members are also welcome for a $5 guest fee.  There is no registration cost.

Bring one or more of those unfinished objects (UFOs) you have tucked away at home to work on. Click here for a list of suggested items to bring to the UFO:  UFO Packing List (PDF)

Come and stay as long as you want, just an hour or two, or the entire day! There is a refrigerator and microwave available, so you may bring a lunch if you wish. Hope to see you there!

May UFO Skill Builder – Color Theory Workshop for Quilters!!

Have you ever asked yourself or someone else, “what colors go well together?” Do you find yourself always choosing the same colors because you “like” them?  Come enjoy a day of no sewing but learning all about color. We will start the day by mixing colors to paint and create color wheels and value scales, and learn about color theory; primary, secondary, tertiary, analogous, neutrals, warm and cool, monochromatic, tints/shades, complementary, split complimentary, etc.

After lunch, participants will create a variety of color schemes, using swatches of fabric, that will work well for future quilts. Never feel the need to ask “what color should I use” again!!
