Things are coming together

It looks like we will have a meeting place (or even two) soon; which is perfect because we are growing at a fast pace and I know that everyone is excited to start learning, doing and sharing.  It's been a big search; but I should have a confirmed answer later this week. 

Also, just wanted to let you all know about some new things going on. 
  • I've created a Modern Quilt Photo page; which is a nice way to not only showcase some quilts our members have made.  It also is a "learning tool" for those people who venture to our page wondering what makes our group so different then other more traditional quilt guilds.  To access the page, just look at the toolbar under our title.
  • We'll be starting Show & Tell as a regular installment at our general meetings.  Bring a WIP (work in progress), a finished piece, a book or tool you love, etc.  Participation is completely voluntary.
  • Be thinking about a committee you'd like to start, maybe it's a fat quarter swap, quilting bee, or something else you think others would like to participate in.  You'll have the opportunity at our October 9th meeting to let us know your idea and possibly even sign up some members.  The main requirement to leading or participating in a committee, is that you must be a due-paying member of the STLMQG.  Please note that committees can be created throughout the year, so if you are not able to attend the October meeting, you can always bring it up at the next one.
I hope to see you at our October 9th meeting.  Thanks!!
