Seeking Acting VP

Our VP Peggy is taking a leave of absence from her role on the NJMQG executive board. According to our bylaws, the executive board may appoint an Acting VP to carry out the responsibilities necessary.

The board is seeking self-nomination of members interested in serving the guild as Acting VP. The main responsibility is creating and maintaining the guild’s calendar and lists of events and enforcing deadlines we may come upon (challenges, filing paperwork, etc.). The Acting VP will need to attend executive board meetings, usually held the week before a guild meeting, and may fill in for the President as necessary. He or she should be familiar with or open to learning online organizational and networking tools (Google docs, Facebook, WordPress).

Above all, we’re looking for someone who will help us pass along the guild spirit of inclusion, positivity, creativity and community.

If you might be interested (this sounds far more serious than it is– we have lots of fun!) please email your nomination to

EDITED TO ADD: Thank you to the people who have stepped forward– the guild is considering our needs and the strengths of those who have volunteered, and we’ll update the guild as soon as we can.

Meeting this Thursday and a Michael Miller fabric challenge!

Hi Guilders,

Get ready, get set… it’s guild meeting week! Our February meeting will be this Thursday, February 20 at 7PM at Rock Paper Scissors.

We have a LOT of things to talk about, some of which I’ll update the blog about as we get closer to meeting time.

But most excitingly…. the MQG is sponsoring a Michael Miller fabric challenge! We will sign up as a guild and distribute fabric accordingly. If you’re interested in participating, please leave a comment on this post (especially if you can’t make it to the meeting). I will also announce it at the meeting and pass a sign up sheet. There will be three national winners who will each receive a goody box from Michael Miller every month for a year.


As for our own guild quilt block challenge, blocks aren’t due until the March meeting, but if you have them, we’d love to see them! Also bring a name tag and a chair with something for show and tell. It feels like forever since our last meeting. I can’t wait to see everyone!
