2022 Guild renewal info

Hello guild friends!

I hope everyone is feeling replenished and refreshed for this coming year.
Thank you first and foremost for your participation and support these past two years. We are continuing to meet via Zoom and our Programs team: Samantha & Tari have gathered a dynamic group of teachers for our lectures and classes this year. We are excited to get this year going and look forward to inspiring each other to accomplish creative things together.

S​ome reminders about our guild renewal:

  • Our dues cover the calendar year of January- December
  • Dues for the year are $60 (the additional $2 is for PayPal fees)
  • A small amount of dues goes to the MQG – the majority stay with us to cover costs of instructors, programs, gifts and other guild needs
  • Membership includes participation in our swaps, challenges, opens sews and discounted prices for our classes
  • Membership includes access to the MQG range of offerings including free patterns, challenges, webinars and early registration to QuiltCon

​Important notes:

  • There are TWO parts of the renewal process
  • You must fill out the form AND do the PayPal portion
  • I will send out the 2022 renewal letter towards the end of the month, the MQG considers us in a grace period for the month until all our members are confirmed.

Updates: Our 2021 MQG Community Outreach Quilt

fabric prep

The MQG’s Community Outreach quilt for QuiltCon 2021 is focused on curved piecing with a given color palette. As in previous years the NJMQG is participating and we are well on our way. A shout out to our members: Lenny van Eijk who came up with a great design, Kathy Morganroth for getting our templates in order, and Margy Schilling who has sorted out organizing, prep and co-ordination of all the parts.

Thanks to all who are already participating on our community quilt: 24 guild members were sent kits! About 20 of us hung out in three Zoom sessions. Twelve have already returned pieced blocks, and they look fabulous!!

Hopefully the rest are on their way. Please let us know if you have any problems with the blocks or find that you don’t have the time you thought you would.
We have a small group lined up to piece the top together, but we will let you know if we are in need of more assistance in this area.

There is another opportunity to help with this quilt: It needs a back! We have a few yards of the blues, and plenty of orange scraps. Anyone interested in doing a bit of improv???  If we have one person to sew it, I bet we can get a few others to consult over Zoom.

Think about it, and let Margy know, or we can talk more about it at the Guild meeting on Thursday.
