A2MQG Meeting Minutes - August 2023

Our first meeting at our new location was held on August 30th at Maker Works in Ann Arbor.

Swaps and Challenges:

  • The guild held the postponed from last month "smalls" swap with 6 participants.  Here are a couple of the prizes exchanged:


  • QuiltCon Community Outreach Quilt - Maya and Rossie have been coordinating the effort. To date:
    • all fabrics have been distributed and all tasks assigned
    • blocks need to be completed by September 28 - check your emails on how to get the blocks to Maya
    • Rossie will be coordinating the "build" event (watch your emails for date and location)
  • Finished charity tops were handed out for quilting
  • Members donated fabrics and other quilt-y items for the guild to resell to support our charity projects - most specifically to fund the QuiltCon quilt but any amount over that needed will be used to purchase things like batting and backings for the charity quilts.
  • We are still working on finding a new location for the Timna Tarr Map Making class
    • participating members will need to purchase the class from Timna - we will provide a discount code
    • class will be done with some pre-work and then working on sections together after or while watching portions of the video
  • Members shared some classes they've taken recently
    • GuicyGuice in Grand Rapids
    • Brittany Lloyd
    • Rainy Barn Exhibit in Athens, OH
  • Show and Share 

  • Josh from Maker Works gave a quick talk on their programs and noted that they are having an Open House on September 17.
Next Meeting: Wednesday, September 27, Maker Works.
