PJ Parties - 2013-14 - LOOKS LIKE A GO! Sign In/Join

Hi all,

Just posting to make sure there is enough interest to resume the PJ parties this fall. Some of us have been talking about it.

In looking at the calendar, this is what I think could be our schedule.

Start on October 4, no class on Nov. 29 (Thanksgiving) and Dec. 6 would be our last class in this year and we would take a holiday break.

Resume in the New Year on January 11.

Let me know what you think, and any suggestions or ideas you may have.

Mary

PS - It looks like this will be a go. So Here are the October dates. Let's see if we can get these dates scheduled for projects.

October 4 Sew Happy - microwave pot holder

October 11 Shawkl - DIY paper templateCQ seams.

October 18 Gonesewin - Snowflake

October 25. Fluer 55 = zippered vinyl/fabric "no binding" pouches

Nov. 8 Patty J - paper pieced Chr*stmas tree

Nov. 15 Shawko - Silk Rib. Emb. Iris

Nov. 22 KBlue - CQ placemats



Since we are getting ready, for those new quilters, and we who can use reminders, here are the rules when hosting a Friday nite party. And, a tip from me, the more wine, the better the party goes.

To host a PJ party all you really need to do is:

1. Let Mary know what your project will be

2. Announce the Monday prior to that Friday night that you will be hosting a PJ Party and give a list of supplies that each participant will need and if there is any prep work involved.

3. Make up your project with written step by step instructions with pictures. It is SO much easier if you have already worked up your project with details & have already taken pictures rather than do it during the party.

4. List the time (in your time zone) that the party will begin.

5. About 15 minutes before the actual class is to begin start a BRAND NEW thread announcing that the PJ Party is beginning. This is where you will post all your info.

6. Make sure you have plenty of chocolate and goodies to share ... a little kahula and wine never hurts either

Sherry, quite? I have been looking at those tile blocks that you all make at the COF. I like the look but I do not have a clue what they are about. That might make a good class.

I will be happy to come up with a class for our Friday nights. I'm sorry to say it will not be the Tile Class. This class is best in a classroom setting and not an online class. There is much prep work for me and the student. At a future COF retreat I will be happy to teach it once again Smile.

Hugs,

I love the PJ parties. I was able to attend a few of them last year and I learned some great techniques and projects. Sometimes Fridays are a challenge for me as often have the Gkids over that night. It's great to be able to go back and catch up on what I missed.

I enjoy the Friday night parties as well. I usually end up working on a lot of them but try to go back to the post and copy the directions.

I love the PJ Parties. I don't always make them, but like others I read them later. I have learned so many cute projects from them. I shared the coasters with some friends, and boy they went to town with them! I had trouble with that striped tablerunner, but now know what I was doing wrong. I have the directions now, and can go back and look if I get lost again. Thank you all for doing these! Yes, please do them!

Once my sewing room is complete in my new house AND I find a job, I would love to actually attend this year. With my 1+ hour commute on Fridays where I lived before, it was impossible to do the parties. But whatever job I find in Idaho, the commutes are a lot less, so I am planning to attend as many as I can this year. And I have plenty of stash (dreading unloading it from the moving van today!)

I would attend if I could but with the time difference I am always on my way home when they are going. I do check in during my commute to see what fun is being had and I look at the directions later. Hope they keep going.

Are they posted somewhere else also other than on the boards? I thought someone had posted PDF of them. I am interested now that I am retired.

I can't always attend, but do download several of them to look at later. Have to confess, don't think I've made many of the items... no time. But love the classes and the interaction going on. Good instruction and so much fun.

I'm hoping to attend some of these after the first of the year....I'm still on track to be retired then Smile I have several of the older ones saved in the PDF format if someone wants a copy. I'll check in the morning and see which ones...they'll be older than last year's, I didn't get anything from that time period...I don't even know what happened during that time period Smile

Hi Fishingwidow,

I'll take Oct 25th Smile, that will give some time to get ideas together. I may need some help with the format?

Hugs,

Hi all,

Just updated the class list.

Also posted on alexemmarose's monochromatic cq thread. Asking/inviting the cqrs's to show how to do one of their favorite embellishments.

You know we can go many ways here. How to do a project. How to do an embellishment. How to do paper piecing. Do you dye fabric, how to do it - maybe tyedying. A favorite tip to complete something.

Okay Mary...I'm answering your call to the CQ'ers. I can do just about any technique you might want to see...but don't want to "hog" the class times!

If there is an interest...just let me know what you want to see and when you have me plugged in. Not "expecting" so if there is no interest...that's fine too.

Short techniques could be small embroidery motif; silk ribbon rose cluster; silk ribbon iris cluster; button cluster; or creating comtinations seams using a paper template.

Hugs,

I like all of Shawkl's ideas but if I have to choose I would pick, with creating comtinations seams using a paper template and small embroidery motif. However I would gladly do any of them.

Thanks Kathy.

Well, I am up for any of them. And we don't want to overload Kathy, but possibly we could do one class in October and another in January to start the new year.

Mary,

I'd be happy to do DIY paper template CQ Seam on the 11th of October.

Plug me in wherever after that for CQ Button Clusters; Silk Ribbon Embroidry Iris; SRE Roses; and anything else folks want to learn related to CQ.

Not my personal favorites...

I could do this snowflake as a PJ Party if anyone is interested and if I can get the evening off to do it...Most of the work will be done before and after the party so it could start later which might be good for the west coasters.

OK, ladies. Will update the schedule. Have had some company and am rested up so need to get on the ball here.

Timecard, I need to know just what Kevin and Brad are going to be teaching us. Let me know what you have in mind here. (haha). I'll send you some atavan Kathy, as we don't need any heart attacks here, but don't want you to be missing out on anything.

And Kathy, I will put you down for October 11th for the DIY paper template CQ seam. I can schedule the Silk ribbon embroidery iris next, so you can pick any Friday in November that would suit you.

Gonesewin, we can slot you in also for the snowflake class and starting at a later time is good. Will Oct. 18 be ok?

Mary

Hi all,

Just updated the schedule and we need 3 more classes to complete the schedule for this year.

I had posted for a paper piecing teacher and this is what Patty 7 posted:

'm not exactly an expert on PP and I waste lots of fabric and I've never tried to do a tutorial, but I have a simple Christmas tree, that is easy to do. Let me see if I can figure out a tute. If someone more experienced wants to give it a shot, I'd happily bow out. Pat

So we can see what she puts together.

Mary
