Next Sew-In: THIS Sunday, March 11, 12-4 at MakerWorks
What to bring for the next meeting: The Yankee Swap for the March 28th meeting is on the theme of "Spring"--use some fabric and your imagination to make a little something for our exchange! Please also bring ideas (words, quotes, etc) to use as themes for future swaps.
Thanks to Debbie for taking these minutes from our last meeting:
The Modern Quilt Guild has announced QuiltCon , scheduled for February 21-24, 2013 in Austin, TX.
Brenda has reserved 2 rooms and Debbie has reserved one. The main hotel is sold out for now.
The deadline for the Modern Quilt Guild exhibit in Houston is Friday, March 2.
The IQA Cincinnati trip will include a meetup with the Cincinnati and Columbus MQGs. Those going include Brenda, Debbie, Anna, Ashley and Natalie.
Katy Jones, Thomas Knauer and Heather Bostic are some of the teachers for the Sewing Summit that will be in October in Salt Lake City.
The American Quilter's Society will have a show in Grand Rapids in August.
Brenda has researched dates the Hankerd Inn will be available for a summer retreat. It looks like the weekend before July 4 or later in July are the best bets. The week of June 23 was not available.
There will be a Southeast Michigan Crafter's Meetup on March 15.
Katie, from the blue chair, is doing a rainbow themed charm swap that will be huge! It will include 280 charms and cost about $14 shipping. (NOTE: This swap is now closed)
We will baste the charity quilt at the next sew-in, Sunday, March 11, 12-4 at MakerWorks.
