Pattern Choice Daytime Gathering 2023

Pattern Choice Daytime Gathering

The Daytime Gathering in 2023 was a year-long Gathering while taking a "Summer Break" in June/July. The Daytime Gathering projects were Pattern Choice: Participants found a pattern that fit their 2023 aims. Some chose patterns from the book: Quilt Recipes By Jen Kingwell. Some chose another Jen Kingwell pattern - and, some found another pattern! A true Participant's Choice Daytime Gatherings for 2023.

The 2023 Daytime Gathering took place monthly and was held at the Raleigh store's BERNINA Studio:

  • The third Tuesday of the month, 10:30am - 4:00pm.
    At our November meeting, we decided to pass on the December Tuesday Daytime Gathering as the Holidays come about. If you are participating in the 2024 Tuesday Daytime Gathering, the next Tuesday Daytime Gathering will be on January 16, 2024.

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 2023 Daytime Gathering, the yearly fee is $75. 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:

Daytime Gathering - November 2023

It was great to see you all at the November Gathering, see completed works: Well Done -- and, finalize the 2024 Gathering plans.

In 2024 we will all use Quilt Kits from our store – and, it will be fun/challenging to work with those projects as 2024 comes about.

With Christmas and Holiday happenings taking preference close-to December's Gathering: We made a group decision to not meet in December 2023.

If you are participating in 2024's Tuesday Daytime Gathering: See you January 16th!

Have a safe / healthy and joyous holiday season.

Previous Month's Summaries

Daytime Gathering - October 2023

What a great October 2023 Gathering we had. We had eight attendees and we had a good talk about 2024 Gathering plans.

We discussed the idea of using Quilt Kits from our store in 2024 – and, everyone thought that was a good idea. We took a “Field Trip” to the store and Siani showed us over 30 different kits.

Seven of us made an on-the-spot decision:

2024 Plans:

I look forward to seeing you in November and seeing your finished-or-almost-finished 2023 projects. 

Happy sewing-

Daytime Gathering - September 2023

Nina brought a beautiful AND delicious coffee cake! -- Thank you, Nina. It was the start to a great day; we could see a lot of progress work-wise. Dawn brought her finished quilt: Congratulations to her!!

I look forward to seeing you-all in November.

Daytime Gathering - May 2023

We ended the first-half of 2023's Daytime Gathering with this May session. It has been an enjoyable/productive five months and I am already looking forward to the Fall and the "return to action". In the meantime, have a safe June/July during our break from the Gatherings.

See you in the Fall! Time flies.

Daytime Gathering - April 2023

We missed a few of you due to health issues -- we, of course, missed seeing/working with those who were not able to make it in April. We did, though, have a delightful day and we were able to "spread out" the work areas/space: Even more than usual!

See everyone in May. Remember, we take a Summer Break in June/July.

Daytime Gathering - March 2023

Another productive day. Mickey brought her almost-finished 2023 top; it is really beautiful with Stonehenge fabrics (one of my favorites): Well done, Mickey. On my end, I finished my 2022 binding and I look forward to going back to working on my 2023 blocks!!

Daytime Gathering - February 2023

A busy day -- and productive, as well. Nice to see your 2022 completed-projects. Thank you for sharing and for your work!

Daytime Gathering - January 2023

We have a start to 2023! It was terrific to be "back" in Gathering action and exciting to see/discuss all the patterns that will be attacked as the months go by.
