SQG is Hosting a VIRTUAL SHOP-HOP………..Starts at 7pm on Zoom
During our regular meeting time for June, we have invited FOUR Quilt Shops to present items for sale for 15 minutes each, offering exclusive event items and door prizes. And, we have an additional FIVE BONUS Quilt Shops offering exclusive event offers and door prizes too!! Viewers will watch and take notes on anything they would like to purchase by contacting the Shop after the event. We’re excited to help the Quilt Shops who supported our Star Quilters Guild Quilt Show last year! They need our encouragement and support.
RESERVATIONS – are NECESSARY!
Send an email to email@example.com stating that you want a ‘virtual ticket” for the Shop-Hop. SQGuild members have first priority until Tuesday May 26th to reserve a ‘virtual ticket’ to the event. If you are one of the first 100 requests, you will receive a confirmation email with important SQG Virtual Shop-Hop information including how to get into the event and a shopping list for each of the participating shops. Starting May 27th, you may invite your friends to RSVP for the SQG Virtual Shop-Hop just like you did. We will also extend invites to other Guilds and the quilt shops will extend invites to their customers to reserve a ‘virtual ticket’. A maximum of 100 people can attend this event, so a waiting list could possibly be created for openings that might become available.
All SQG members will still receive ‘exclusive offers’ given to ‘virtual ticket’ holders from the Shops. But, will unfortunately miss out on live virtual offers and door prize opportunities.

This is the presentation from Dawn Schaben’s February 2019 program on T-shirt quilts.
These measurements include 1.5 inch sashing and 2 inch border with each t-shirt block being about 14.5 inches.
Now that the Jacket Challenge is about to wrap up, we’re looking for our next idea. Take the survey below to be part of our process:
Here are the handouts for a class held in June 2018 on making a convergence quilt.
Ice Dyeing is super easy. Betty Tyree taught the Starry Eyes a couple years ago. I’ve done it 3 times since her workshop. So, although I’m not an expert I can assure you it’s easy.
I get all my information and supplies online from Dharma.
Dharma has 2 Tutorials online:
Learn How to Ice Dye
Ice Dyeing with Ugly Colors
The tutorials have complete supply lists and instructions.
For fabric prep, I either use PFD (prepared for dyeing) cotton yardage or dyables as is, or I wash plain cotton in Blue Dawn dish detergent as Betty taught me. I don’t bother with the special textile detergent recommended by Dharma. I also use multiple soaks in Blue Dawn post-dyeing to get the excess dye out.
The only exotic items are the Fiber Reactive dye powder and soda ash powder. Dharma sells dye in primary color sets, or you can buy any specific color(s) you like. I bought my Soda Ash from Dharma, but apparently this commonplace chemical is cheaper bought locally. Kitty bought for our recent play date at a pool supply company. Kristen buys it as “washing soda”.
Below are shots of my most recent results.
