Meeting Recap (February 11th, 2017)

February's meeting jump-started our year and we couldn't be happier with the way it turned out. Please read on.

  • Jessica handed out this year's MQG Membership Cards, and Krista jumped right into her new role as Treasurer 
  • Annie & Dottie led an excellent discussion on "Preparing Your Quilt for a Long-Armer"; which was very well received and got everyone thinking about things like squaring up your quilts, how to measure for borders, what type of batting to use, etc.
  • The rules for the Officer's Book/Pattern Challenge were clarified as many questions had arisen since it was first announced in January.
  • Krista, Jessica and Kristy did a quick "Moderning Quilting: Yes, No and Everything in between" presentation.
  • The 2017 calendar was discussed including the announcements of activities and education opportunities for our members in the coming months.
  • Members brought their quilts and projects to share during Show & Tell; which is always a beloved part of our meetings. You can see a large assortment of the quilts on our STLMQG Instagram page.

Thanks for continuing to support our guild. We are looking forward to a wonderful year of collaboration, quilting and excitement.
