June Meeting Reminder

Have you had a time when you’ve got so much going on that you missed an important task? Like doing a reminder post?  Yikes!

Anyway…

It’s time for our June meeting!

When:  Wednesday, June 11, 2014, 7:00-9:00. Social time starts at 6:30

Where:  Greenwood Senior Center, 525 N 85th St, Seattle, WA 98103

On the agenda:

  • Approval of May minutes
  • Announcements (of course!) including a new Block of the Month and the much anticipated member survey. Woot!
  • Return of quilts displayed at the Northwest Folklife Festival.  We had a great show
  • Destash swap
  • Demo by our own Debbie Jeske of A Quilter’s Table.  We’re lucky to have so many talented members and you don’t want to miss Debbie’s demo! I for one am really looking forward to it
  • Member card pick up. I know new members who joined in the second quarter are looking forward to their cards
  • Sew-and-tell, of course!  It’s the best part of the meeting

For the destash swap, the guidelines are posted on our MQG site group and repeated here for your convenience. 🙂

  • All scraps are welcome and you need to only bring them in, no sorting or packaging required. No money either
  • If you bring scraps, you don’t have to take any home, if you don’t want to.  And, if you don’t bring any scraps, you can take some home.  A win-win, as they say
  • All scraps, all sizes (scrap is a relative term and yardage to some is a scrap to another), useful for quilting (so please no upholstery samples…), so wool, silk, of course our beloved cotton…all good

Anyone in desperate need of some skeletons?

Pack your bag!

  • Nametag. Pssst – we have a new nametag incentive. Members wearing their nametag get an extra door prize entry 🙂
  • Destash fabrics
  • Quilts of Valor blocks
  • QuiltCon matrix if you want to compare notes
  • Notepad for jotting down notes and inspirations. A pen or pencil might be useful, too
  • Sew-and-tell
  • Snacks (if you’re a June baby. Happy Birthday, BTW)

Whew! See you tomorrow!
