Fabric Postcards Project

[Be sure to scroll down to the Jan. 26 post to read about our quilt show which begins Feb 7th!]
Fabric Postcards Project!

From Colorful Quilts in St. Paul --
Join the Colorful Quilts postcard exchange!
Make a fabric postcard, send it to the store by the end of February, and the store will send you one in return. All the postcards the store receives will be on display during the month of March.
1. Cards should be 4" x 6"
2. Be sure to write your complete address on the card so the store can send you one. Only the front of your card will be on display to the public.
3. A 39-cent stamp works for postage, as long as you don't put too many embellishments on your card. Rub the stamp onto the fabric with your fingernail.
4. Use Timtex or other stiff interfacing for the middle of your card. Have fun!
Store address: Colorful Quilts, 2233 Energy Park Dr., St. Paul, MN 55108

Note: To help you along with this project, Carol Egan will have some Timtex postcard-size pieces available for 25 cents each, honor system, at the Historical Society on Tuesday, Feb. 13.

Welcome to the Dakota County Star Quilters blog! We haven't found a web master, so we'll use this blog for sharing our news and photos. Please visit often and read about our activities and about our quilting adventures.

We are a guild of about 70 members in Dakota County, Minnesota. We meet on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 7:00 PM at the Eagan Community Center. Our meeting room is in the back, on the ground floor.

Every year we host a quilt show, and this year's is coming up soon! Read the announcement below (shown in two pictures so you can read all the words), and please visit our quilt show. We think it's beautiful and will be lots of fun.

To contact DCSQ, please leave a comment at any blog posting, and we'll get back to you as soon as we can.
