SIT –N-SEW We have had a growing interest from quilters who would like a designated place to sit and sew. We applaud those who like to finish their projects! However, the 4H Leadership Center has limited space. We need to be considerate of classes being conducted, the teachers who strive to be heard, the students who have paid to attend the class, the cleaning staff, the cafeteria staff, and the committee members who need time and space to set up the week’s events. Beginning with this year, the only people who may be in a classroom (including the cafeteria) while a class is in session are those students who are enrolled and participating in that class. Further, the cafeteria is not to be used for machine sewing at any time outside of class. Class Angels will be asked to assist in making sure that anyone in a classroom is on the enrollment sheet. The staff of the Leadership Center must be permitted to clear the cafeteria to end the work shift and the committee will also need to use set up the cafeteria for activities. This policy will be strictly enforced, and those who choose not to comply will not be eligible to attend future Jabez Quilt Seminars. For those who would like a space to sew, we offer the following suggestions. Empty classrooms will be made available in the evenings whenever possible. However, please don’t plan to use the apartment in the evenings as the Quilt Registry will be in the classroom space and the bedrooms will be used as dorm rooms for the week. Your dorm room is always available for sewing, provided you are quiet while others are sleeping. And finally, the Leadership Center is available for rent at times other than the days of quilt seminar. Your group may want to consider hosting a private event here, to take full advantage of the Center’s space. We appreciate your understanding of the situation, and thank you for your cooperation. SEWING MACHINE CLEANING & REPAIR CLINIC Charlie Blair has agreed to service your sewing machine on Wednesday & Thursday during the conference.

Cleaning & Repair Check-In Charlie & Melvina Blair $45.00 per machine for cleaning Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on repairs. Wednesday January 21st W1. Fat Quarter Jacket Marjorie Baker $25.00 LEVEL: Beginner This loose fitting jacket can be made to any size by changing the size of the “building” block. It is made from six squares of fabric trimmed with binding, fabric bands or can be lined to create a reversible jacket. This is a great beginner serger project, but can be constructed without one. Techniques: Directional prints should be avoided. Keep in mind when selecting your size that a smaller square will produce a shorter sleeve and smaller wrist measurement . When in doubt go to a larger size. If you have long arms, go to a larger size. Fat quarters are precut fabric pieces that typically measure 18 by 22 inches. For sizes requiring larger than 18 inch squares, purchase fabric by the yard according to desired dimensions. Always allow for shrinkage by purchasing a little extra and pre-washing before cutting squares. Supplies: 6 fat quarters or equivalent yardage to cut 6 squares according to size chart (if you want both shoulders to match, 2 squares need to match), 1/4-1/2 yard of fabric if making your own binding/bands and cuffs, thread, scissors or rotary cutter, ruler and mat, serger (optional) and sewing machine– used for stay stitching.
