March - April: Events, Swaps and Challenges!

We have so many fun things planned for you all in 2020! This month we have a lot happening, so here is the one place to find all the details:

Rowing Along: 2020's Group Sewing Event!
If you haven't yet signed up for Rowing Along, you'll need to do so ASAP! Sign-ups close on March 17. Email Catherine (catherinedutton@gmail.com) to sign up - just tell me that you're in. Bring your starter row to the April meeting along with your bag (distributed at the March meeting).

April Swap: Bunny Baskets
This has become an annual tradition for our guild. You'll make a small pouch, basket, or bucket and fill with 5-10 worth of spring goodies. See the post from last year for links to inspiration and tutorials!

Color of the Year: 1 yard Rip off
Bring 1 yard of fabric from one of the two colors of the year to our April meeting. We will introduce the color of the year and have a rip-off! You'll start with one fabric and leave with one yard's worth of 12 different pieces.

Colors are:
Classic Blue and Enchanted

Sew Day at Best Little Retreat Center
Come join us in March to work on our starter rows for the row along, or to participate in quilty friend fun! Best Little Retreat Center is a day retreat center- bring your machines and project and sew from 9am-9pm. Saturday, March 21 Reserve your seat online (sign up by March 7 to ensure your spot!)  Cost: $22.73

Retreat at Duchess Inn - May 22-25 
Come join the fun from Friday May 22- Monday May 25 at The Duchess Inn. The Inn is located in Van Alstyne, just a block away from The Quilt Asylum!

This open sew retreat is hosted by the McKinney Modern Quilt Guild.

The price of this retreat does not include meals. Retreat-goers will discuss meal options as we get closer to the date.  The price of the retreat is $130 for Fri-Sun; $195 for Fri-Mon.

Each person attending needs to fill out this form.  By filling out this form and paying a $50 non-refundable deposit at the guild meeting, you will hold your spot.

Final payments must be received by the May guild meeting in order to attend the retreat. Don't wait too long as there are only 10 spots! Non-members may register for open spots beginning in April
