Jan/Feb 2016 meeting announcement

Pittsburgh Modern Quilt Guild February Scrap Swap

Don't Forget!  The February meeting has been moved to January 31st!

Because we all love fabric and appreciate a good deal, the February meeting has been changed to Sunday, January 31, 2016.  The time is 1:00-4:00 and we are still meeting at the Pittsburgh Project.  Click the link for directions.  The original meeting date coincided with Super Bowl Sunday as well as several great sales at local shops.  A list is being compiled for distribution at the meeting.

We're going to:
  • get updates on some programming ideas that are in the works
  • brainstorm on a chance to work with other modern guilds
  • collect money for the FQC (Fat Quarter Club)

Pittsburgh Modern Quilt Guild Fat Quarter Club

After the business portion of the meeting, we want you to share any recent fabric or pattern purchases you have made and how they inspire you.  If you want to clear the decks to make room for those new ideas, we are also having a scrap swap!  Bring a gallon-size plastic bag full of your extra bits.  You will get the chance to stuff your bag with other members' scraps!  Maybe something new will stir the creative juices!  

If you have larger pieces (yardage) to purge, we'll have a separate table for those.
Anyone bringing scraps gets first dibs - leftovers will be available to the rest of the group after all participant picking has been done.

The time remaining after the scrap swap will be devoted to a free sew and working on any projects you want to bring.

Remember, the first meeting is free if you have been thinking about joining.  Come on out!
