August 2014 Upcoming Events

A few things our members have in the works:

If there’s a man in your life who wants to learn how to sew, sign him up for the Man-Made Sewing Series at Modern Makers, taught by Lesley Latham. This series of classes is for all of the men out there who want to MAKE! Projects will vary and you can join in at any time.
August 6th, 6:30-9:30pm – Modern Pillow
August 20th, 6:30-9:30pm – Bow Tie

Lesley will also be teaching the super popular Staple Dress by April Rhodes on August 24th from 12-5pm. This is a simple dress with lots of ease through the bust and hips for women and teens sizes xl-xxl. You can find more info on these classes by visiting the Modern Makers website.

Nikki McDonald is the Regional Coordinator for the Quilts of Valor organization and would like to invite anyone interested to come help make heirloom quality quilts for members of the US Military. She has a private Facebook page for the Quilts of Valor Kansas City Area group and they meet on the last Saturday of the month for a QOV sewing day.

Saturday, August 23rd, 9-4pm at Tallgrass Creek Retirement Village

Please email Nikki at for information on joining the group or to RSVP for this event.

This is the first of hopefully many more “upcoming events” blog posts! The events listed are submitted by individual KCMQG members on a monthly basis.
