July 2017 meeting update

Reminder: Meeting this Thursday, July 20, starting at 7:15. In addition to our regular agenda, The Quilt Spot will be there selling lots of fun pre-cuts , quilt kits and other goodies! They will accept cash and credit cards.

Also, if you signed up for the one hour basket swap with the Central Jersey Modern Quilt Guild, we’ll be handing out baskets. I’ve seen them, and they are fun and generous. Really nice. Hope to see you then!

Our meeting is this Thursday, July 20, 2017 at 7:15 pm at the Community Church of Cedar Grove, 65 Bowden Road, Cedar Grove, NJ 07009. Parking is located in the large lot in the back – use the side entrance to come in. Feel free to arrive about 15 minutes early.  Important: Check in at the registration table to sign in.

This will be the first meeting for the new Board.  We’ve been going  through a lot of information, and are gaining an even greater appreciation for the amount of work done by the previous Board.  We’ll be reaching out to the entire Guild over the next couple of months for input  regarding committees, teachers, bees, and other aspects of our Guild life.

We hope you’ll start thinking about speakers/teachers you’d like to see, so that we can start reaching out to people for next year.
