Meeting this Thursday, July 26th!

Can't wait to see everyone after our long break from our May meeting. We've been busy with lots of meet ups though! New folks are welcome too!

This is a great month to come for your first meeting and get on board with our quilt challenge. Here is our agenda:

Guest speakers! Cristin, Catie, Kathy and Susie all had quilts for display at NQA in June and will be discussing their experience at NQA, how they got their quilts 'show ready', etc. and of course - they are bringing their quilts for show n tell as part of their talk!

Paint Chip Challenge We'll have extra paint chip challenge instruction sheets and paint chips in case any new folks show up who want to join in.

Things to bring: 
Books for our book exchange - you can bring any quilting/sewing book and new-ish magazines to participate in our book exchange!

Show and tell! Have a project you've finished? Have something you're stuck on and want some advice? Bring it in!

Reminder- CMQG Shop Hop Next Saturday, July 14th!

We had a great interest in the first CMQG Shop Hop on Saturday, July 14, 2012!! Twelve ladies have signed up so far. We will be going to The Fabric Shack in Waynesville, Sewn Studio, Lavender Street Quilts, and IKEA, all in Cincinnati. 

We will be meeting at 7:45am at The Cracker Barrel Restaurant, Exit 100, I 71 and Stringtown Rd, Columbus. If you would like to meet earlier and eat breakfast together at the restaurant before we leave, please be there no later than 6:45am so we can leave promptly at 8:00am. If you get caught in traffic, we will wait a few minutes, but are planning on leaving at 8am on the nose!! Fabric shopping is waiting! 

Please call Abbe (740-408-4293) if you are running late or are not able to make it so we won't be waiting for you. We will need to have 3-4 volunteers to drive. If you have a larger vehicle, we would of course love to have you volunteer. The fewer the vehicles, the better. (Please be mindful of the use of gasoline and chip in to help defray the cost to the driver.) 

If you were not able to attend the CMQG meeting and would like to go on the trip, please email columbus.modern.quilt@gmail.com as soon as possible, no later than Thursday July 12

Looking forward to a great trip, great fabric shopping, and getting to know each other better!  We will be scheduling more Shop Hops for the upcoming months!!
