Just a quick reminder the first Pittsburgh Modern Quilt Guild meeting will be Sunday, May 6 at 2:00PM at Loom in the Strip.
Here is a blurb from the email reminder I sent out to those who have expressed interest in the group:
At the meeting there will be time for introductions and an opportunity to discuss the option of membership fees, guild leadership, establishing a meeting schedule, what we as a collective want out of the MQG, and ways to keep in touch. As well, we will wrap the meeting up with a show and tell of any current projects you wish to share, which may lead to additional ideas for the guild.
Please bring your ideas!!! Each branch modern quilt guild is unique in its mission and has a variety of ways in which the guild interacts. Some ideas are: Monthly sew-ins, monthly SWAPs, block and quilt challenges, tutorials, project and technique-based classes, community outreach, education outreach, annual show and sales, and involvement in local craft fairs and events. This meeting is an opportunity to express your ideas and help us write the first chapter of the Pittsburgh MQG.
Some of you have indicated you would like to contribute snacks or refreshments for the meeting. If you plan on bringing something please let me know so we can make sure we have enough snacks and space for food.
Please feel free to ask questions in the comments area or drop an email at the PGH MQG email. Thanks all! We are looking forward to meeting everyone.
