◊ Time Out at the Wagon ◊

Every Wednesday (except holidays or when notified) – 10 am to 2 pm

Leader: Varies depending on who needs Time Out.

Put yourself on “Time Out” at the Wagon.  At times we all need time out from housework, phone calls, and everyday responsibilities.  Come to “Time Out at the Wagon” and do just that. Marsha is looking forward to being on “Time Out” and hopes lots of you will join her.

Bring whatever you might be working on—quilting, stitching, knitting, crocheting, or whatever you enjoy doing.

Maybe you just want to sit on “Time Out” and stare off into space—that is permitted.

There is no charge for sitting and visiting on Time Out.  Bring a friend because sitting on Time Out with friends is the best.  You do not need to stay on Time Out for the full time.

Bring a lunch if you plan to stay on Time Out through lunch or sneak off for lunch and come back or bring it back and eat it here with friends.

In this 12-month Block of the Month, you will be picking up from the shop and making a block for the “Baltimore Wood” quilt, but instead of needle turned applique, you will be doing wool applique.  We love the dimension and ease of wool applique.  It takes this incredible quilt up a notch.  We have also reduced the size of this quilt a little.  The finished size is 54” square.  Marianne Michaels spotted the original Baltimore Woods by, Yvette Marie Jones of Vetmari, LLC with Pink Hippo Designs (which will be used and included in this BOM) in cotton at Quilt Market and home she went to start hand-dying wools. She has whipped up a slightly smaller, wool appliqué version of this eye catching quilt! Call or come in to sign up for this beautiful Block of the Month.
