We are headed into our second full year. If last year was about getting our footing as a guild, then this year is about really seeing all the great things we are capable of. Thanks to all of our members who made 2013 such a great success! We hope to see you all as members again for 2014 and we can't wait to see some new faces. We have so many great things in store for 2014, come join us to find out all the details!
At the last meeting of 2013 (November 24th) we voted in guild bylaws. These bylaws were required for membership with the Modern Quilt Guild. With the generous sponsorship from Periwinkle Quilting, the Saskatoon MQG is officially part of the Modern Quilt Guild for 2014. When you sign up as a member of the SMQG for 2014 you will also gain full access to all of the MQG benefits (fabric challenges, forums, special events and discounts). We will begin selling 2014 memberships at our January meetings. Membership dues have been set at $30 for 2014
. If you plan on joining at a meeting please bring cash and we will get you set up for another year (or for the first time!). If you would like to attend meetings and find value in what we are doing we encourage you to become a member.
Meetings will continue as they were. We will be meeting the fourth Sunday of every month. These meeting will take place at Periwinkle Quilting at 2pm. Our next Sunday meeting is January 26th at 2pm
. At this meeting we will do a little business, we will have a presentation on scrap busting and we will be handing our guild coloured fabric for anyone who wants to contribute a 6.5" block to our guild banner.
We will also continue our Wednesday night meetings through the end of 2014. These are held the second Wednesday of the month at the Co-Op grocery store on 8th street. The meeting room is located beside the pharmacy. These meetings are less formal, bring something to share or work on, and just enjoy the company. Our next Wednesday night meeting is this Wednesday,January 8th at 7pm
Thank you so much for your continued support and enthusiasm! Our door is always open - get in touch with ideas, comments, questions, concerns, and topic suggestions for upcoming meetings! We always like to hear from you.
