May 2024 General Meeting:  Merrie Jones, The Wonderful World of Batting, Thursday, May 16, 2024, 12:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. Boulder Valley Christian Church

Join us as we welcome Merrie Jones, owner of Merrie Berrie Quilting in Aurora,  CO.  Possibly one of the most neglected aspects of quilting is batting choice. Fortunately, batting expert, Merrie Jones, will guide us through the differences in quilt batting so we can make the best decision possible. In addition to sharing her expertise about batting, she will also bring batting and other items to sell. We all know that if it’s one thing quilters love almost as much as quilting, it’s shopping for quilting supplies. If you have a particular interest, please let us know. 

Merrie is known for her fair prices and accepts cash and checks. Local sales tax applies. Items for sale include: Batting (silk, wool, bamboo, soy, cotton, cotton blends, polyester) from companies such as Hobbs, Warm, and Pellon, Fabric, Rotary blades, Needles, and Notions.  We invite you to be a part of the presentation! If you have a favorite batting that you use in your quilts, please bring a quilt for show and tell, and share what you love most about the batting – drape, loft, warmth, or anything else you love about it.
