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

Let’s hang out on Thursday, our guild meeting night!

We’ll open it up at our usual 7pm for a quick visit & we’ll start at 7:15.

REMINDER: at this meeting members will be presenting their ideas for our group quilt entry into the QuiltCon Community Quilt Challenge. The theme is ANGLES in the chosen color pallet – info is on the QuiltCon website. ***You must send photos to show at this meeting as we will be selecting from the options seen on Thursday night. Please send your idea in even if you can’t make the meeting. There will not be an opportunity to present after this as we will be voting before our September meeting so we can start planning. Send your photos to Programs@njmqg.com before the Thursday meeting. We’re excited to see what you’ve been angling at 😉

Please send your show & tell photos to Programs@njmqg.com, with “AUGUST” in the subject line…Send us pics:

Summer continues and temperatures are rising! Hope you are staying cool while making fabulous quilts! We had a number of members in attendance, welcomed new member Suzanne Fiorvanti, guest Heidi.

Here’s the recap of our latest guild meeting.

Guild Business

Thank you!! A big thank you to all of the outgoing board members for their hard work and many contributions to the guild. And a big welcome to our new board members. Lenny provided our Second Quarter financial report.

Return to In-Person Meetings

We are excited to share with you that starting in September, we will return to in-person guild meetings at the Community Church of Cedar Grove, more details coming at our August meeting.

Be sure to check out all the happenings that are going on over at the Modern Quilt Guild and Quiltcon 2022. It’s time to put your design caps on and work up a design in “Angles” for our Community Outreach Quilt for 2022. Collaborate or work independently on a pattern for this design contest in the color palette above. Please remember to submit your designs prior to the August meeting, we can’t wait to see them! We will be looking for your submissions in August!
