Grandma's Quilt Club: Hoppin' and Shoppin'

"Use it Up, Wear it Out, Make Do or Do Without"

With husbands, sons, and fathers at war in the 1940s, American women were not only faced with maintaining their homes and families, they were also expected to keep the nation's economy running through either working outside the home or by conserving much needed food and household goods. Often it was both. The nation's women planted victory gardens, sewed and knitted clothing, quilted by the radio, and waited for their husbands, sons, and fathers to return.

In our new quilting club, you will have four fabulous quilt colorways from which to choose. Door prizes, friends both new and old, as well as the latest in quilt store happenings are already lined up on our itinerary. You're not going to want to miss a single mile of our quilt club journey together. It's going to be one boisterous, bang-up, bundle of fabric fun!

Quilt block kits are available in four different color schemes: Americana Batiks, Blue and Yellow 1930s; Teal and Purple Batiks; and Blue and Purple Solids. Class participation is $10.00 per month per colorway. There is a $10 membership fee which helps offset the cost of class materials. Bonus: Add Blue and Purple solids for only $5/month when you join another colorway.

Grandma’s Quilt Clubs are like no others that we know about. They are a fun way to learn about history that affects women today, discover new products, participate in door prize drawings, be with friends, and collect quilt blocks. You must pre-register for this class.

Continuing our series on the Stories of Old Oregon, we are continuing our focus on the towns and founders within the state of Oregon. Grandma Rachel will guide you through the fascinating history of how many of the towns in Oregon were founded--how they got their names, their early history, prominent citizens of the day, and beginnings of each town's commerce and industry.

This year's quilt is Centennial Sampler. You'll make quilt blocks that the pioneers themselves might have made, socialize with friends and discover the answers to such questions as which town was originally called the Forks of the Santiam, what town was destroyed by its founder's favorite garden shrub, and who first platted the streets and why.

Grandma Rachel has created a quilting experience you will not want to miss. Over the course of the class, she will provide History, including show and tell of quilts and information from the time period of the mid-1800s. You'll receive quilt block patterns, an informational newsletter and other entertaining handouts. After each session there is a fabulous FREE lunch of soup, salad and dessert.
