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

August Guild Meeting – it’s this Thursday!

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.

**This month – we’ll have a mini-demo/lesson about leader & ender projects!

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 😉
