Meeting #9 -- May 14th, 2011

Hello Modern Quilters,

I'm so excited to see everyone this Saturday, as I was out of town celebrating my Brother's Wedding last month.  Of course a big Thank You goes out to Mary Claire, who stepped in during my absence to run the meeting and host what I hear was an excellent presentation on Modern Fabric Designers with the help of several fellow members.

I'm also very excited to see the new members that joined in April, we love new faces.

Needless to say, we have much to cover at this meeting, I hope to see you there.

I won't be able to make the meeting this month. DD is having her final dress fitting. I completly forgot about the noodle swap. Looks like I have some fabric to add to my stash.

Next STLMQG challenge? I better get my first one done before I get too excited about another one.

I will be checking for the meeting update to see what I missed. Thanks for keeping us well informed!

I will be missing it also..We are going to be adding 2000 sq ft of flooring to our house..I don't think I will be able to sneak out..

Hannah said...

I think I will finally get to visit my first meeting this month! Is there anything special I should know/do beforehand?

Kristy said...

Hannah, I'm so excited that you'll finally be visiting us...YAY!!!

If you want to participate in the Noodle Fabric Swap; bring some strips as described in the post. Otherwise, a nametag will give you a chance at a doorprize.

See you then.
