Today is the submission deadline for the Seattle MQG Modern Quilt Exhibit at the Northwest Quilting Expo. The special exhibit will feature 40 quilts by our talented and amazing guild ~ our turn to shine!
First things first. If you read nothing more of this post, read the next bit about the meeting venue change….
We’re having our first OUTDOOR meeting!
Where: Greenwood Park, not far from our regular meeting location. It’s between Evanston Ave N and Freemont Ave N and south of N 89th St. The official address is 602 N 87th St. We’re meeting at the north end of the park on the concrete area. Since we can’t reserve the area, look for the group of quilty types (I bet there will be some quilts laid out).
Parking: Park at the Greenwood Senior Center (we have it reserved) and walk three blocks north. If that’s too far, there’s street parking at Greenwood Park.
When: Wednesday, July 9, 2014 from 7:00-9:00. If parking at the Greenwood Senior Center, give yourself time to walk to Greenwood Park by 7:00
CONTINGENCY PLAN: If it is raining (it’s Seattle, after all), we will meet at our regular location, the Greenwood Senior Center. If the weather looks dicey, look for updates here on the blog, Facebook, and Instagram. There will also be an old school paper notice (gasp!) on the east door of the Greenwood Senior Center.
It’s time to submit up to two of your quilts to be in our special exhibit at Northwest Quilting Expo in Portland, OR September 25-27, 2014.
Our exhibit has space for 40 modern quilts of any size. This form will remain open until July 15th. Quilts will be selected and you’ll be notified by the end of July. Quilts will need to be turned in at our September guild meeting and will need a hanging sleeve.
Who’s ready to go on retreat? Registration for our fall retreat at Camp Berachah in Auburn is now open. We will be staying in the Hillside Lodge. The retreat dates are November 7-9, 2014.
We’re on a tight schedule for this registration so the space can be secured.
