February 2013 Newsletter
Thanks to everyone who came out to our last meeting, braving the snow and terrible roads! This month we have some announcements as well as some follow-up from our last meeting.
The webpage is finished (details will be added over time) and Carly and Jaclyn have been blogging. Check it out at www.SaskatoonMQG.com. We would love for you to write a guest post for the blog! If you have a tutorial or something to share please contact us and we will get you set up with a profile so that you can write a guest post. This is a great way to drive traffic to your own blog and share ideas with members of the guild.
We also have a Flickr group found here: http://www.flickr.com/groups/saskatoonmqg/. If you are a Flickr member please join the group and add your projects to the pool! We'd love to see what you are working on.
Regular Sunday meetings will continue to be the 4th Sunday of the month. Our next meeting is Sunday February 24 at 2pm at Periwinkle . We also have meetings the second Wednesday of the month, from 7pm-9pm at the Co-op Grocery store on 8th Street. There is a meeting room beside the pharmacy. The next Wednesday night meeting will be March 13th. We endeavour to keep the Sunday meetings more structured and the Wednesday meetings more informal, anything goes on Wednesday, bring something to share with the group, something to work on, things you need help with, whatever you feel like contributing.
Sunday February 24th Meeting: Kerrie will be giving a tutorial on piecing curves. We will announce another challenge as well, this one involves colour and should be lots of fun.
We drew ugly fat quarters at the last Sunday meeting - these projects are Due on March 24th. How are you doing so far? Finding a way to turn that ugly fat quarter into a treasured finish?
Madrona Road Challenge - January (Due February 24)
Don't forget to bring your completed Madrona Road project on Sunday. We want to do a group picture with all the completed projects. We can't wait to see what you came up with.
