Within the pages of this From the Cutting Room Floor, you will find fresh inspiration for the expression of your own fiber arts – whether it be traditional piecing and applique, traditional with the twist of paper piecing techniques, new techniques with new or familiar tools or a new Absolutely Beginning quiltmaking sampler – we look forward to sharing a Fall season of productive fun and adventure in quilting.Shirley Scott, Certified Judy Niemeyer Instructor, and Cindy McEntee team up to present the popularly successful Technique of the Month paper piecing classes. Cindy is on location for Judy! Judy!! Judy!!! once each month. Lou offers a couple of smaller Judy Niemeyer projects this fall. All of us addicted to the Judy Niemeyer method of paper piecing have been watching the progress of our students’ projects as their renderings of Glacier Star and Mariner’s Compass, Paradise in Blooms, Vintage Rose and other wonderful patterns blossom into quilt tops extraordinaire. You, too, can create your own version. There’s no going wrong with any fabric choice you might decide upon. We love to provide Blocks of the Month opportunities for many of the Judy Niemeyer patterns in your color palette. Just ask! Schedule some time with Lou to work up your own color way of Quiltworx patterns using the Quiltster™ design programWe’re happy to introduce a new-to-our area instructor Sandra Millett. Sandra comes to us from Texas with a broad background in appliqué and hand piecing. We are so looking forward to Fun with Lucy Boston and a new-format-for-us hand appliqué class. Welcome, Sandra! Look for her first class listings in the pages of our CRF.By popular demand, we’ve added a two-fabric fusible appliqué class with Patti Kenyon returning to the Director’s seat.  Erin Henzel will be pulling the Youth Guild back together as school activities settle and schedules are known. Stay tuned for more information on this great activity for the youth of our community!On The Beach retreats are scheduled in November, February and March. The March retreat is a week-long Totally Techniques retreat Sunday, March 25 through Saturday, March 31. Shirley, Judy Niemeyer Certified Instructor, will provide extreme tutelage on techniques developed by Judy to enable success in creating any of her great patterns. The focus will be on Glacier Star, Mariner’s Compass, Paradise in Blooms, and the newest exclusive techniques pattern Vintage Rose, but with special permission from your instructor, you might work on one of Judy’s other patterns during this week-long coastal escape. New patterns are being generated from Quiltworx at a very steady pace, so if you’ve already made one of these four quilts but wish to take advantage of this very focused week, discuss your needs Shirley. Space is limited, so early sign up is important. When you take a class from Shirley – you can be assured that you will receive the instruction you would receive from Judy herself – she’s certified that with her personalized training. We’re so glad to have Shirley and Cindy on our faculty! More information is available at JLC.  October 16th we officially celebrate 24 years on location in this old Waucomah movie theatre. Twenty four years – it seems impossible! We’ve enjoyed this time so much. We feel very blessed! Because the 16th is on a Monday this year – and JLC is closed Mondays, we will celebrate on lucky Friday the 13th, Saturday the 14th and Tuesday the 17th.
