Hi everyone, Cheryl here. I've been very lax about updating the blog, and I apologize about that. Of all the bazillion things there are to do, it seems like it's the one to fall to the wayside. I'm hoping to get all board members updating on a regular basis. But the silence over here does not mean that we aren't out here and doing lots of fantastic things!
We have a Facebook ad running, which is generating interest! I'm hoping to see lots of new faces at the upcoming meeting. If you have friends who might be interested in our group, please bring them to our meetings!
I'd like to hear from you about where you would like to see our group go in the next few months. I, for one, would love to see more about the modern quilt movement -- the aesthetic shown in the work of many of the founders of the parent group, The Modern Quilt Guild. To that extent, we've added member Candy Parker to the board to help bring us closer to that group. She will be reporting on the goings-on of the national group at our meetings!
QuiltCon? It's the first annual conference put on by the MQG and even if you can't go, you can be a part of it! We're going to be sending our blocks in to represent our fantastic group of sewists. You can find all of the information on the QuiltCon page. We'll be having sewing days at Quilting Adventures on June 2nd and 27th. See their calendar for details! They even have put together bundles of the official QuiltCon colors to make our blocks with!
And don't forget that Karen Sievert is coming in June! She'll be doing a trunk show at our regular meeting on June 15th and then will have a workshop the next day, June 16th. We are able to provide this class to members at an unheard-of class fee of $35 (and a kit fee of $6 payable to Karen on the day of the class). You don't want to miss this opportunity! Check out this link on Quilting Adventures' blog to see a beautiful version of the workshop quilt!
Finally, also in June, we will be revealing our final quilts in our current swap. So much fun! I can't wait to see mine!
