You ready for some improv??


I am so excited to announce that our next sew day will be an IMPROV DAY! We are going to be sewing improv baby quilts for boys for the charity team (we have a big imbalance of girl appropriate quilts). We will be sewing on Sunday September 29 12pm-11pm, with noon to 6pm designated for charity projects and 6-11pm set aside for personal projects (if you want).

We will have some guidance available if you need direction, but you are also totally free to go your own way! Scraps that have been donated to the guild will be made available for your use, along with a selection of solids:

Of course, you are always welcome to bring fabrics to use, but there should be plenty available.
Please RSVP so that we can get a head count.  The forum is the preferred method if you are a BAM member - our friends in the South & North Bay are also welcome and can RSVP via Facebook. 

Los Altos Library
13 S. San Antonio Road, Los Altos, California, 94022
Note: This is not the same location as our regular meetings.

Shout out if you can bring these items to share:
  • Light/non-messy snacks
  • Irons (need 3 total)
  • Ironing Boards (need 3 total)
  • Large Cutting Mats (need 2)
  • Design Walls (need 2)

Plan to bring your own:
  • Extension cord and/or power strip
  • Sewing machine
  • Cutting tools/mats (you might want a personal one)
  • Night-owls may want to bring an iron and cutting mat if an early-bird needs to take theirs home.

We will be in the Community Room of the Los Altos Library. It's the large room on the side of the library nearest San Antonio Rd. There are two sets of double doors on the outside of the library - both lead into a foyer area, and the Community Room door is on the left part of this foyer, the checkout desk is on the right.

If you arrive first, go talk to the librarian at the children's reference desk to check in.

If you arrive late (after 5pm when the library closes), knock on the doors closest to the Community Room, and someone should be able to let you inside.

We will need to set up and take down tables and chairs, which are available at the library. Please plan to help with this. Also please try to keep your floor area clean.
Coffee and other light snacks are available in the foyer of the library.
People often pick up meals from a local restaurant. There are many places nearby, or you can take San Antonio to El Camino and find many restaurants and markets there.

P.S. Our next sew day Saturday October 26 10am-11pm . Again, it will be at Los Altos Library, but it will be a regular sew day.
