Bernina World of Sewing Pattern Choice 2018 Gatherings

Participant's Choice:

Daytime Gathering:
  • "Antelope Canyon" from Laurie Shifrin Designs
  • "Sea Swept" by Laura Flynn
    (Note: Sea Swept is a Web-downloaded-by-the-participant pattern).
Evening Gathering:
  • Quilt Patterns Selected from the book:
    "modern neutrals, A fresh look at Neutral Quilt Patterns" By Amy Ellis

(Note: Evening Gatherers have decided that they may also choose from the Daytime projects).

This Web page is aimed at being a central repository of information for our 2018 Daytime and Evening Gatherings. The Daytime participant will choose, over the year, from two projects: "Antelope Canyon" from Laurie Shifrin Designs or a Web-downloaded-by-the-participant pattern: "Sea Swept by Laura Flynn", and the Evening participant will choose quilt patterns selected from: "modern neutrals, A fresh look at Neutral Quilt Patterns" by Amy Ellis.
(Note: Evening Gatherers have decided that they may also choose from the Daytime projects).

The 2018 Gatherings are taking place monthly, started in January 2018, and continuing:

  • Evening Gathering: The second Monday of each month, 5:00-9:00pm.
    The next Evening Gathering will be August 13, 2018

  • Daytime Gathering: The third Tuesday of each month, 10:00am-4:00pm.
    Note the Change to this date! The next Daytime Gathering will be July 31, 2018

For participating in the Gathering, you are reminded that:

  • The Gathering participants purchased, from our store, books or non-Web Downloadable patterns chosen to be part of the Gatherings and the fabric needed for quilts created during the Gatherings..

  • For the 2018 Gatherings, a yearly fee of $50 is charged when the attendee commits to the first Gathering he/she attends.

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

  • Gathering participants, surely, interact. However, the Gathering is not a class . Each participant is expected to be able to manage his/her own project.

  • 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, due to classroom class size and machine space limitations will not be accommodated. Sorry!

  • If a Gathering participant decides to "drop out" of the 2018 Gatherings, it would be appreciated if that were known by the store; there may a wait-list and, if a Gathering slot opens - Persons on the wait-list will be notified of such.

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

The 2018 Gatherings are expected to be over-subscribed. If you wish more information about participating in either the monthly Daytime (third Tuesday) or Evening (second Monday) 2018 Gatherings, stop by the store or:

A lot of "deskwork"/practical work this month. Not a lot of "Design Wall" action - but, that is fine! Different levels of ready-to-see progress with a lot of design work and discuessions. Good!

We successfully completed our first Gathering! I was surprised how everyone had already gotten organized, got started while at home and were so generally prepared. Both the Evening Gatherers and the Daytime Gatherers were on the "field" running! We had a great start and it appears that 2018 will be a very productive year.
