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!”

The Orlando Modern Quilt Guild is collecting quilts for the victims of the recent shooting at Pulse nightclub.
The NJMQG has registered as a guild to make and send one completed quilt.
At our guild meeting tomorrow, June 16, we will have a sign up sheet for guild members who can contribute one or more blocks. We ask that you use this tutorial from Cluck Cluck Sew for the 10-inch finished block (or this paper piecing version by Elizabeth Dackson). You will sign up to make a specific color (or colors). More details about the background color will be given tomorrow night at the meeting.
You can also read more about it here on the MQG site and check out the Instagram hashtag: #quiltsforpulse. The blocks will be due at the July meeting.
*If you cannot attend the meeting and would like to contribute a block or blocks, please email njmqginfo at gmail dot com. We will sign you up and assign a color.
