May Meeting Summary

The Pittsburgh Modern Quilt guild had an exciting May meeting!  We worked on our Mod Mood quilts - you can see some progress on our Flickr group.  Everyone's quilts are headed in such different directions and they are all looking spectacular!

In new business, meeting attendees agreed that the guild would join the international Modern Quilt Guild.  To facilitate this relationship, dues will be raised to $35/year starting in July.  If you would like more information and details regarding the benefits of the Pittsburgh MQG joining the international MQG, please take a look at Lauren's presentation.

On the subject of dues, don't forget that our fiscal year is up in July and members should renew then at the new rate of $35/year.

Attendees at the May meeting also discussed some potential fundraising ideas to help offset the costs associated with formally joining the MQG.  Ideas included a members' show and sale, raffle quilt made by all guild members, and hosting another raffle basket at an upcoming meeting.  If you have any other fundraising ideas or would like to organize a fundraiser, please let us know! 

The June meeting will be a "Sew and Show" meeting.  If any member would like to volunteer a demo for the June meeting, please contact the Pittsburgh MQG.   The meeting will be June 2 from 1-4 at the Pittsburgh Project.  We look forward to seeing you there!  Bring a project to work on and have fun sewcializing!
