Patchers promote variety of classes

Posted

Classes are a major focus for Palo Verde Patchers. In the middle of the month, Vice President of Classes Lynnie Siefferman introduces the classes for the following month at the Tuesday announcements meeting. The project samples for each class are hung in the club’s Class Corner along with sign-up forms for each class. Cost for each class is $5 (may be more if the instructor is from outside the club) plus the cost of the pattern and any special tools that may be required.

In February, there are five classes: “Dresden Neighborhood,” taught by Pat Luhmann, is a whimsical wall hanging featuring houses made “Dresden” style; “Project Bags,” taught by Bonny Havican, features quick and easy zippered, see-through pouches, perfect for storing many projects; the “MIDI Bag,” taught by Linda Gagnon, is a medium size version of the larger Mondo Bag and is handy bag for many purposes; “Our Flag Stands For Freedom,” taught by Pam Boley, is a patriotic wall hanging that can be used for patriotic holidays or left up year around; and “Block of the Month,” taught by Fran Elliott, is an on-going monthly class through April.

Every month, students learn a new block that will be joined together to make a 88” x 88” quilt. Patchers members who are interested in these classes are quick to sign up as they do fill up fast. This makes announcements day a busy time in Class Corner.

PVP’s club rooms at the Kuentz center are open 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday through Friday (until 8 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday) and 8 a.m.-noon Saturdays. Announcement meetings are 10 a.m. the first, third and fourth Tuesdays. Monthly general meetings are 10 a.m. the second Tuesday of the month in the R.H. Johnson Social Hall. Visitors are welcome at all meetings.
