Feel free to contact any of us if you want to know more about what specifically each of us does for our position, or check over the by-laws for specifics as well.
Joining the MQG. We will also be discussing the reason we want to have official membership to the Modern Quild Guild. One great reason to join is this:
http://themodernquiltguild.wordpress.com/2013/08/16/the-basics-challenge-with-riley-blake-designs/ Yes, free fabric for challenges such as the Basics Challenge with Riley Blake Designs going on now. We won’t be able to get in on this one as a guild but maybe the next one if we join! There are many more perks which we will discuss before we vote on joining this Saturday.
Chelsa will be conducting the Pillow Swap Saturday too!
Remember the pillow isn’t to be included, but a finished pillow cover should be 18×18 and should have a flap or zipper closure and be pieced. You are welcome to add embroidery or other embellishments, but your cover needs to be pieced
Embellishment Challenge Results!
Please bring any item you wish to share for our embellishmen t challenge for a chance to win a prize. This is our last challenge of the year and it will be fun to show off what we have embroidered, appliqued, or otherwise embellished this year!
As always bring any Vitamin D Bee or Skillbuilder BOM blocks you have completed as well. We look forward to seeing you there!
