SEWCIALS in 2020

Your Rainshadow Quilting Arts Guild Membership includes monthly Sewcials. Typically, they are held on the first Saturday of each month at the Mullis Senior Center. Sewcials are your chance to work on any project you want and gives you uninterrupted time to sew, visit with friends and chat.

For lunch the Guild provides a “salad bar” with greens, tea, and coffee. Members are asked to bring an item of their choice to add to the ‘salad bar‘ menu. Popular items are salad bar additions, other types of salads, soup, etc as well sweets for dessert.

Auffle Raffles

We hold Auffle Raffles at almost every Sewcial….so monthly except as noted. These raffles help us defray the cost of renting the spacious, well lit, room at the Mullis Center.

Please bring your gently used items, quilting and sewing related as well as any other items that you may want to rehome.

Typically, the items are set up in groups at the Mullis Center…ask where to put your items if you are not sure about it. Each ‘chance’ is $1.00 and you will find bits of paper to write your name on. There is a “cigar box” to put your cash or check donation in.

For example: $5.00 = 5 chances = write your name on 5 pieces of paper, fold the paper(S) up and place them in the plastic cups that will see front of the item(s) raffle items.

More Questions? Just ask!


Sewcial May 18, 2019

It was a busy Sewcial. I don’t think that I have ever seen as much delectable food as I did on this day!
Thanks to Krispi Staude we have some fun photos of the day

Eby’s entire stash of 30’s reproduction fabric was accidentally thrown out. We collected a new stash for her along with some cash so that she would be able to fill in with what she really wanted.

Janet Wright made this special quilt during a week long workshop with Patricia Belyea.

Nancy Best creates this beautiful quilt using a panel that she bought at Quilting Foxes.

We had an unusually bountiful Auffle Raffle …here Marge is deciding what she wants to bid on!

Below…next two photos,

Barb was very busy in the desert this year! Her guild there is incredibly active. There are just TWO of the many quilts, bags, and boxes that made no showed to us. She is one of the most prolific “doers” that I have ever known!
