July 2013 Meeting Notes

Thanks Barb for taking notes! 

August: The ‘Do We or Don’t We’ Meeting 

James Stitching Sisters – Kathy G. is leading two challenges for this great organization. One if for pieced tops with backing and the other is for quilting and binding. There will be fabric drawings and two sewing machines as prizes. Woo hoo! Be sure to see Kathy G. with any questions. 

All Day Sew In - Kathy F. with Keller Williams Realty has generously offered her office as a spot for a sew in. (Some of you may remember that we met there for our monthly meeting once last year.) Be sure to mark your calendar for November 2 from 9:00 – 5:00. (That’s  9 AM to 5 PM, by the way.)There will be a sign up sheet at the September meeting. 

Sewing Retreat – The “First Annual #OHcraft Sew-In” takes place a Hueston Woods Lodge and Conference Center near Oxford, Ohio in November.  Registration is now closed, but congrats to those of you lucky enough to get registered.

At the time of our meeting, some Giant Eagle grocery stores had a 2 pack of $30 JoAnn gift cards for $50. Put that with a 40% off coupon and you could go to town! 

MQG?? The remainder of the meeting was spent discussing whether we want to become an honest to goodness  official Modern Quilt Guild next year with dues, officers and all the goodies that come with it. Check your email boxes if you haven’t already take the survey that Stacy sent out to get feedback from our membership on the ‘do we or don’t we’ question. Here is the survey:

See you next week!
