Now that the holidays are over, and you are getting back in the swing of things, we want to welcome you to the start of another great year with the St. Louis MQG. Let's see those things you have been working on over the break, and let's discuss what you AND we have planned for 2016.

:: Let's see what fun modern quilty things you received (fabrics, books, notion you've been eyeing) or what items you made during the holiday break. Please limit this to 3 items per member. Additionally, in an effort to ensure we have time for everyone, please make sure that you give us the abbreviated 2 min story not a dissertation :-)
:: The Freebie Table is changing this year. Starting this January, whatever you bring that is left over at the end of the meeting, you must take back with you, or dispose of accordingly (throw it out, donate to Goodwill, etc). We will no longer be collecting and bringing back the leftover items month to month. Also, please be respectful of your fellow members and don't bring "junk" to begin with, this is an opportunity to part with things that you no longer love; but think other members might want.
:: We are looking for 9 STLMQG members to participate in a new monthly program called "Member Trunk-Show". The key is that you MUST actually make modern quilts/projects, since we are after all a modern quilt guild whose motto is "All Modern All The Time". This program will give 9 members the opportunity to share a little bit more about themselves, show more of their work then is allowed during Show & Tell, as well as what future projects they are working on, etc. Obviously, if you are a pattern designer or long-arm quilter who also makes quilts yourself, you can mention your business; but this is NOT a sales pitch. To qualify, you must have been a member of the STLMQG for at least 1 full year and have a clear understanding of what modern quilting is. Sign-ups will occur during the meeting, don't be shy.
See You Saturday!!!
