Description

Fabric Depot is excited to launch Portland’s newest Strip Club-The Fabric Depot Strippers!

But wait, it’s not “that” kind of strip club! This is a strip club even your mother would approve of…

The Fabric Depot Strippers is a fun, new quilting Block of the Month club that meets at Fabric Depot, starting in February 2018. Why is it called a Strippers Club? Because all the blocks featured with each quilt pattern use 2½ inch strips.

How does it work?

  • Join the club, come to our seven monthly Strippers Club Meetings and receive a FREE quilt pattern every month!

  • Skill Level: Confident Beginner (Able to read a quilting pattern, use a rotary cutter and ruler, and sew with an accurate 1/4" seam allowance.)

  • Membership is $40.00 and includes your attendance at all 8 meetings. The Fabric Depot Strippers meet the 2nd Saturday of each month, starting in February. Sessions are from 10:00 am to 11:00 am. Meeting dates are: February 10th, March 10th, April 14th, May 12th, June 9th, July No Meeting, August 11th, September 8th, October No Meeting, and we will have a Grand Reveal party to share all the wonderful creations by members on November 10th from 6:30pm -8:30pm

  • There are 6 Strippy Quilt Patterns plus a 7th finishing pattern. Each month a FREE pattern and block will be presented.

  • Members have a choice to either make the monthly quilt or create multiple blocks from each quilt pattern to make the Bel Canto Quilt which is a King Size quilt.

  • Our club managers, Julie Foglio and Paula Chipman, long time quilters and expert instructors, will share tips and techniques while walking members thru the monthly quilt pattern and block.

  • Everyone has the chance each month to win door prizes and receive special club rewards!

What are the details?

  • Membership is $40.00 for which you will receive seven FREE patterns, a $70.00 value!

  • Meetings are a hour long, and members must be present to recieve their monthly pattern.

  • We encourge you to bring your finished projects and "WIPs" (Works In Progress) to share with your fellow members.

  • All quilt patterns use 2½ inch strips. The fabric requirements are listed on each pattern telling you how many strips and how much background or accent fabric you need for the various sizes.

  • If you are using your own fabric, cut your strips selvedge to selvedge (or width of fabric). Members can use their own fabric or stash.

  • Fabric Depot will have a limited supply of pre-cut strip packs available to purchase for each quilt.

FAQs (Frequently asked Questions)

*Do I have to make a block each month?

No! You are free to choose. Those of you that want to make the large Bel Canto quilt will make your blocks each month, the rest of you will be able to choose which quilts you want to make.

*What if I want to join, but I missed the deadline to join in February?

No Worries! We will accept new members through the second meeting on March 10th, 2018.

*What if I miss a month?

Not a problem! You can still participate however you will need to purchase your pattern, for $10.00. Just contact Julie Foglio at 503-482-0707 and let her know you want to purchase the pattern. Pay for it at our wholesale desk. (Yes, this is an additional cost, so come to each meeting and you won’t be charged!)

*If I miss a meeting, can I still get the special offers that were given to members at the meeting?

Sorry, you will have to be present at the meeting to receive the special pricing and the member promotions.

*I'm having trouble making my project. Where can I get some help?

Come to our Open Quilting Class, held right after the monthly meetings. Contact Julie Foglio, or sign up and pay the $15.00 class fee for the Open Quilting Class.

Or, post a question or comment on our Fabric Depot Strippers Club Facebook page.
