June Meeting Recap

Before we review the events from the June meeting, registration details for the members only Shibori dyeing workshop have been emailed out! The workshop will be led by Rebekah Joy at Workshop PGH on July 29th. This should be a fun event so make sure you get  yourself all signed up!

We had a great turn out at the June meeting. Everyone was pretty excited to turn in their Modern Solids Minis for the upcoming PghMQG exhibit at the Pennsylvania National Quilt Extravaganza in September. Check out #pghmqgmsc on Instagram to see all of the great pieces created for this challenge! If you haven't turned in your mini for this challenge yet, please be sure to bring it to the July meeting.

Some of the great Modern Solids Minis that our members created!

Our presentation in June was led by Amanda and covered how to use social media to find information, connect with other quilters, and find inspiration. You can download the presentation slides here. We reviewed some tips on using Instagram and finding info on the MQG website and on the PghMQG website. We have two new tabs on our website with good information: the membership information tab and the guild challenges/swaps tab. Be sure to check them out!

We also decided on our plan for the 2018 QuiltCon challenge quilt. The project this year will be led by our VP of Membership, Michele. Several members volunteered to be on the project committee. Look for more details to coming soon!

Check out some of the pretties we saw at Show and Tell this month:
