We are hosting a virtual Sew-In, but this time, it’s not snowing outside, it’s too HOT outside! The NJMQG Sew For The Gold Sew-In is this Sunday, August 14th from 11am to 5pm. Stay inside, watch the Olympics and SEW!
We will be posting on Instagram using the hashtag #njmqgsewforthegold. Show us what you are working on! You can also post on Facebook.
This is a great time to sew up a charity backpack for next week’s meeting! Read about it here. Links to the backpack pattern are here and free on Craftsy.
“See you” on Sunday! Use the following tags: #njmqgsewforthegold #njmqg @njmqg
Also, next week, the MQG is having an MQG Sew Day!
from the MQG site:
“Who says we have to be in the same place to sew together? You’re invited to a virtual sew day with MQG members around the world using Instagram stories.
The sew day will be held August 21 all day long, regardless of time zone. Post a photo using #mqgsewday to show others that you’re participating, then hop on to Instagram stories to post a live video of what you’re working on! Browse the hashtag to meet new friends and connect with members in real time. Hope to see you there!”
