Meeting Recap (August 9th, 2014)

Here's a recap of things you might have missed, or things you should know about.

  • QuiltCon Quilt Show Call for Entries is now open...through November 30th.  Check out all the details (Show Info), (Entry Process), and (Judging Process) for more information.
  • The Member's Swap/Challenge Committee is hosting the Celebrate of St. Louis Challenge; which will be due at September's meeting...only a month away.  
  • Sew-In Saturday is August 23rd from 9am-9pm.  Kelly, our Secretary, has already sent out the invite to all due-paying members, so check your inbox and sign-up.  We would love to see you there.  

The last few items for the Bay Area MQG Orphan Block swap were collected this past week and will be mailed off.  We cannot wait to see what goodies are returned to us (hopefully by September's meeting).

We shared a presentation on Modern Traditionalism to highlight some key elements you can use to make those beloved traditional blocks a little more modern.  Wrapping up, we had a group activity putting pencils to paper and creating some interesting "quilts" of our own...some of which can be seen below.

WOW (War on WIP) is still going strong, and we are happy to see so many people clearing those cobwebs off of their Works in Progress.  

Our regularly scheduled Show & Tell was equally as exciting.


Our October event is a Go!!!  

Chrissy cleverly named it SewMe St. Louis, and Juli Ann is creating a logo; which we hope to put on some swag and use on all further event communication. 

Mark your calendars for Saturday, October 11th and Sunday, October 12th.  We WILL NOT be having our guild meeting that month; but rather using that weekend to sew, learn some things and socialize.  The formal invite is coming soon; but in order to continue we need to get a quick head-count of those looking to attend, so keep an eye on your inbox as all due-paying members will be receiving an email this weekend with more information.

We will see you next month, until then, let's keep the conversation going over on 
Facebook and Instagram.
