Out first meeting was last night and I know I wasn't the only one surprised by the turnout. We had 38 amazing ladies come and join us for our first meeting with the McKinney Modern Quilt Guild. I am so excited to see how this group connects and grows together!
We discussed several things at the meeting, one being the meeting time. As a group we decided moving the start time back to 6:30pm would be best for the majority of schedules. So from now on we will start at 6:30!
This first meeting was used to introduce the ladies to the Modern Quilt Guild movement. I highlighted several benefits of being affiliated with the National Guild.
Joy, our Vice President, was also able to share a quick notion demonstration! She introduced our ladies to the Sewline Needle Threader. For anyone who does hand-stitching, this is a must have notion.
For those of you who missed our first meeting I wanted to let you know about the project for this month. Whoever brings a handmade name tag to the June meeting (the sticky paper ones don't count), will be entered into a prize drawing. Here are some examples in case you need a little inspiration.
So, like I said, if you bring in a handmade name tag to the June meeting you will be entered into a special prize drawing! The prize also might be handmade!
Also we prepped our first Challenge! I will be posting more about that later this week! So get to work on those name tags and we look forward to seeing you all June 4th @ 6:30pm.
