This month we have a very special announcement about our next meeting on April 27th, be sure to read it through if you plan on attending the meeting.
April 27th Meeting
Our next meeting is Sunday April 27th at 2pm at Periwinkle's new location at 912 Broadway Ave. You can park and enter through the back door, or park on the street in front but you may have to come around to the back to get in.
We will have a very special guest at our meeting. Monika Kinner-Whalen of My Sweet Prairie
fame will be leading us through a hands-on exploration through modern hand-stitching! It is a great honour to have her as our guest. She is a wonderful teacher and you won't want to miss it.
We will start promptly at 2 and run through 30 minutes of business including handing out fabric for the MQG Fabric Challenge and the MQG membership cards and pins that arrived. We will also show off the results of the perfect point challenge.
To cover the costs of having Monika teach for us we will be charging $10 for non-members. Members will be absolutely free! Not a member yet? No problem, sign up for your annual membership before the meeting for $30 and you will not be charged the $10. One of the benefits of paid membership is being able to attend guild events at no or minimal cost.
- Small scissors
- A quilt sandwich; something just to practice on or bring something that you want to embellish and intend to finish. Anything goes!
-Minimum 10" square fabric (Can be pieced or plain) - Optional
Monika will supply all the needles and thread we need.
We hope to see you at this very special meeting!
