February 2018 Guild Meeting

Hello!

Let’s take a trip down memory lane to our fabulous Valentine’s tea…

So many people and goodies. And what a fun time! What did you think about our impromptu theme?

A HUGE shout out and thank you to Robin for taking an idea and making it happen!

Welcome to our new members and visitors Jeanette, Berene, Cosmo (the ultimate quilt holder) and Kathy. (Sorry if I’ve misspelled your names)

Field trip

Michelle R updated us all on the field trip scheduled for April 14. We will be heading into Brooklyn for an adventure. We will check out the Brooklyn Museum have lunch and hit up Brooklyn General. We need at least a commitment of 10 people, so we will be taking sign ups and money at the March meeting!

Swap

Our next swap will be due at the April meeting. Let’s make some cool sewing organizers! There’s still some time to sign up!  Get inspired here

Info

If you want to work on your free motion quilting, Angela Walters is doing a FMQ-along. Check it out here

New members, if you need a name tag, we’ll partner you up and you can swap!

If you are a new member and have not received an MQG pin, see Lori at the next meeting!

We are looking for a volunteer to lead the sunshine committee!

Quiltfest

We are asking for volunteers to help coordinate, set up and take down. Set up will start Tuesday April 24, 1-4. We will have a guild exhibition. Individual entry for quiltfest is March 26 (for guild March 21)

Charity

We will be collecting more pillowcases in a April. Whip a few up today!

Rachel is generously offering to make more templates. Any shapes and sizes you know would work well with kits? Let her or us know.

And check out the great quilts made for donation (from the amazing kits put together by the extraordinary Rachel)

Bylaws

We are continuing to review and revise the bylaws.

Programs

Sarah is busy filling up our calendar! Keep an eye out for updates and sign ups. Chawne Kimber will be here before we know it! So excited!

Our Round Robin continues….

JoAnn is going to teach a Mariner’s Compass class.

Challenge

We had some great entries into our monochromatic half square triangle quilt challenge!

Congrats to Michelle, Amy and Ameri!

Show and Tell

We we’re lucky enough to have Berene aka Happy Sew Lucky aka member Janita’s sister be at our meeting. Funny thing is that she was having a little giveaway on IG and our Margy (and I) won!! So she was able to give her the prize and brought along the Badass quilt for us to enjoy.

And here is Cosmo rocking the quilt holding. He’s got some mad skills.

Thanks so much for sharing, Berene! And I can’t wait to start making a tattoo quilt!!!
