Quilting for JLWOP
We will be featuring and selling some of our quilts as well as other handmade items to help support our donations of baby quilts to the Jackson Park and University of Chicago hospitals, our yearly contribution to a scholarship program for the Fiber Arts at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, the donation of group quilts to the Hyde Park Transitional Housing Project and the Art for Health Program at Rush Medical.
This year's Fair will be held June 4 and 5. You can find us just west of Kimbark and north of 57th Street on the curved walkway leading to Bixler Playlot. (Kittycorner from Noodles Etc. and back a couple of booths in if you navigate by landmark instead).
Since summer travel season is upon, I did a little noodling around and figured out how to create this Google map of all the Illinois quilt shops that are participating in the Row by Row Experience. Participating shops offer a free custom pattern for a quilt row that is unique to their shop. And while the pattern is free, you often have an option to by kits and embellishments for the shop's featured row. The event is national and runs from June 21 through Sep 6, 2016. To learn more about Row by Row Experience visit their website: http://www.rowbyrowexperience.com/

Please see the information below regarding the location for Tuesday, March 15th
We will gather at the University of Chicago Knapp Center for Biological Discovery (KCBD) building 6:30PM to 9PM instead of the usual Treasure Island which is being used for a polling place.
KCBD is at 900 East 57th Street (57th & Drexel). Come to the NORTH entrance to the building where there is a conference room.
