Friday's meeting (June)

Hey everyone!

If you're still working on your postcards for this month's swap (I know I am), here is a link to a postcard back.

Don't forget to wear your name tags to this month's meeting. There might even be a little something in it for you (as in a special drawing)!

We'll be enjoying the company of Susan and Christine of Swirly Girls Design on Friday night. I can't wait to see their beautiful quilts in person!

If you're interested in becoming a Special Interest Group leader, please let me (Cheryl) or another officer know, preferably before Friday. If you have an idea of where you'll have your first meeting, if there is a size limitation to your group, if it's a short project or ongoing, etc., we'll announce it at Friday's meeting to get you rolling. You can email us at RichmondMQG (at) gmail.com. If we have more than one volunteer for a particular group, we'll let you duke it out.

We'll have a few handouts at the meeting, too: a membership roster and membership cards!

Summer's here!

The calendar may not say so, but the weather sure has! I don't know about you, but when the heat gets unbearable, I like to get into my nice, cool sewing room and do some piecing.

Have you been following our parent group, The Modern Quilt Guild? They have a challenge going on now with the theme organic. The judge is Pokey Bolton (from Quilting Arts TV and magazine) and some fabulous prizes. The deadline is June 30, so you still have time!

Our June meeting will be Friday, June 17th and will feature a trunk show and book signing by our very own Susan and Christine from Swirly Girls Design!

Have an idea for a demo you'd like to do? Email us!

How are your postcards coming?
