Time: 10am - 12:30pm 
Location: The Heights


-Welcome & Guild Business

-------------------------- FYI ------------------------------

:: Don't forget to bring your modern Show & Tell projects, new modern fabric you've recently purchased or books you just had to have. Let's keep it to a limit of 3 though, so everyone has a chance to participate.

:: Our Charity Projects are well underway; but there is still time to participate...so check it out [2015 Charitable Projects].  We are hoping to collect 30-40 handmade totes; which are due at our August meeting.

:: We will have solid fabric and permanent pens available for all those who would like to sign a siggie block as part of the Charleston Modern Quilt Guild quilt for the Emanuel AME Church. All of the blocks signed at Saturday's meeting will be mailed off in a group package; but if you would like to participate and won't be at the meeting, you can certainly send one off yourself.  All the details can be found here [Quilt for Mother Emanual].

:: SewMeSTL will be here before you know it, and we are looking for workshop teachers.  If you are a dues-paying member, you received an email on Tuesday 7/7 with an application link. We'd love to have you participate.  

See You Saturday!!
