September meeting – we’ll be Zooming!

Hello guild friends –
As discussed at our August guild meeting, we will be postponing the in person part of our September meeting. The September meeting will remain ALL virtual – over ZOOM.

We will be planning an in-person event that is not dependent on a meeting so that those members who are interested can do so. We will be in touch about where we land.

All this to say that we will see you for our September meeting over ZOOM!….which will still include PRIZES!!!!

Thanks

Rachel

NJMQG March Events Canceled

Hello fellow guild members and friends,

Under CDC guidelines to reduce the spread of COVID-19, the Board has decided to cancel our 2 March events: the regular meeting on Thursday March 19, and Janet Van Treuren’s  bag-making workshop on Saturday March 28. Full refunds will be issued to all those who signed up for the workshop.

The medical community recommends minimizing social contact, which means limiting all social engagements including intimate gatherings among friends. While no one seems to know how bad the pandemic will be or how long it will last, everyone seems to agree that it will get worse before it gets better. We hope that warmer weather will work in our favor. 

Meanwhile, as we individually practice “social distancing”, we want no one to feel isolated, so the Board is working to find safe ways to stay in contact and share our guild spirit. 

On Thursday March 19th, instead of meeting in person, we’re gonna s-t-r-e-t-c-h those technical skills and host a live online meeting from 7:15 to about 9.

Crista is spearheading this and will send detailed information about joining the meeting using your computer, tablet, or smartphone.

Please send pictures of your UFO project and any items you planned on bringing to Show and Tell to programs@njmqg.com. Block Lotto is postponed until next month – so you have extra time!!

We urge all members to take appropriate precautions to stay safe and healthy.

Your Executive Board,

Rachel, Kathy, Lenny, Jenn, Crista & Janet
