What was I thinking? …A Message from Gayle

What Was I Thinking?! 

Join us Saturday September 7, 2019 for our monthly guild meeting.  The September program will be an interactive presentation for guild members to join in.  We all have them, those fabrics that we just couldn’t resist, or just can’t quite recall how we ended up with, that we also can’t figure out what to do with. Or what on earth we were thinking when we even bought them, right? Bring one of yours to the meeting and have the opportunity to show it off to the group and receive suggestions, input, and inspiration for what to do with it.  Maybe you’ll just find it a home to go to, other than back to yours, if a fellow quilter discovers that they have the perfect project to solve your fabric dilemma.  Participants will be entered in a drawing for a prize.

Mark your calendar for our Sit and Sew scheduled for Saturday September 21, 2019 that will be held at the Quilters Cocoon at 9901 Indiana Ave, Riverside from 10 AM to 4 PM.  The guild will be providing fabrics and patterns to work on charity quilts or several boutique items, or bring a current project of your own.  And of course, there will be shopping available!

If you haven’t visited the guild website recently there is now a link to our Activity Calendar that lists meetings and other goings on with the guild.  From the Welcome page at www.iemodernquiltguild.com click the ‘here’ link in the welcome message to be taken to the guild’s calendar.  Hover over an event for more details.
