If your TU Chapter or Council has Trout or Salmon in the Classroom programs, please pass on this announcement to teachers and coordinators:
Enhance STEAM learning with your TIC/SIC/AaT program by joining the 2017 Trout Quilt Project. Participating classes create 20-30 fabric art squares (on Inkjet Fabric Sheets, felt, etc.) based around the theme Symbiosis. The finished squares, along with a correspondence letter from the students, will be sent to classrooms across the country! It is a unique opportunity to share your experiences with other schools and you get the surprise of receiving quilt squares in the mail. The final result and outcome—after sewn together—will be a beautiful, colorful quilt!
Instructions can be found by clicking here for the PDF. That way, if you wanted to get started early on your craft project, you totally can! Remember, this year’s theme is SYMBIOSIS. See the intructions for more information.
A full mailing list with detailed instructions will be sent out by February 8th. This year please create quilts that do not need to be washable. This expands the types of media you can use on your quilt. It does not need to be waterproof, but should stand up to many excited students handling the square when they receive it. Have fun!
