We have a lovely, rambunctious meeting last Wednesday! It's always nice to see everyone's faces and projects.
Next Sew-In: There is a conflict on June 8th. We are going to have this on a special date, but need to confirm with Pink Castle staff. Please keep an eye out for a notification.
Next Meeting: June 25 at 6:30pm at Pink Castle
- Swap: Instead of a swap in June, we are encouraging our members to contribute to one of the charity projects! Economy blocks for veterans or quilts for the nicu. Look here for information on block patterns and dimensions. If you're at Pink Castle, dig through our fabric bins!
We started our meeting with a discussion about Quilt Market. Read this post from Pink Castle about the upcoming trends in fabric!
Booking teachers: We discussed the recent Sarah Fielke class and talked about booking more teachers. Who are teacher's we'd love to have? Alison Glass, Jacquie Gering, Cheri Lynn Wood, and Carolyn Friedlander were all mentioned. We discussed working with other guilds to share the expense.
