Blooming 9-Patch 2022 Gathering

Blooming 9-Patch 2022:

Daytime Gathering:
  • Blooming 9-Patch using the pattern from the book: Tradition With A Twist Book By Blanche Young & Dalene Young Stone and/or supplemented by a class handout developed by Sonja.

This Web page was aimed at being a central repository of information for our 2022 Daytime Gathering. The Gathering in 2022 is being held in two five-month time-slots: Gathering time-slot-1 was in January-thru-May and Gathering time-slot-2 is in August-thru-December. January-thru-May's project was a Blooming 9-Patch using the pattern inspired by the book: Tradition With A Twist Book By Blanche Young & Dalene Young Stone and/or supplemented by a class handout developed by Sonja. Note: "The Tradition With A Twist Book" was optional. The class handout by Sonja was provided to the Gathering participant at a $10 additional/separate charge to the $50 Gathering fee. The August-thru-December project is participant's choice of selected patterns from the book: Urban Quilting By Wendy Chow; there will be a $50 fee for the August -thru- December Gathering as was the case for January-thru-May.

The 2022 Gathering will take place monthly and will be held at the Raleigh store's BERNINA Studio:

  • The third Tuesday of the month, 10:30am - 4:00pm.
    The next Daytime Gathering will be on August 16, 2022.

For participating in the Gathering, you are reminded that:

  • The Gathering participants purchase, from our store, books or other patterns chosen to be part of the Gatherings and the fabric needed for quilts created during the Gatherings..

  • The Gathering participant, by joining the Gathering, is making a commitment to make a solid effort at completing the Gathering project for that five-month period.

  • For the 2022 Gatherings, the January-thru-May fee is $50. The fee is non-refundable once charged.

  • Gathering participants should have experience in sewing and in making quilts.

  • Gathering participants, surely, interact. However, the Gathering is not a class, although Sonja will be available to assist during the five-month Gathering session.

  • The store will not be able to arrange and set-up class machines for use during the Gatherings. Gathering participants should bring to the Gathering what they need for sewing/cutting during the Gathering.

  • Due to the numerous options / aims / of each Gathering participant, space at the Gathering is limited.
    Gathering Participants must be pre-signed up. "Drop in" participants will not be accommodated. Sorry!

Further information will be available on this Webpage and via eMail sent to Gathering participants.

The Gatherings are normally over-subscribed. If you wish more information about participating in the monthly Daytime (third Tuesday) Gatherings:

Previous Month's Summaries

Daytime Gathering - April 2022

Another hard-working / successful day in the Studio. Your work looks great.

We started discussions about Fall 2022 Daytime Gathering projects: I look forward to hearing about / discussing additional project possibilities: Time is flying - We will decide, soon.


Daytime Gathering - March 2022

It looks like walking through a Quilt Gallery. What a beautiful impression of colors. Well done, Gatherers!

Daytime Gathering - February 2022

Everyone was working hard - Design Wall and All: Making good progress; it is great to see.

Daytime Gathering - January 2022

Hi everyone-
We had an absolutely perfect “First Gathering” Day at the Studio after two years of Zooming, etc.
Everyone was excited and ready to start this project’s Blooming 9-Patch quilt.  It was fun to see everyone’s color combinations, talking to friends that we had not seen in awhile – and getting to know the new members of the group.  Wonderful.

The new Studio works well; everyone had their own table with “social distancing” and the sun peeking through the window was an extra bonus.

I look forward to seeing you in February if not before.
