Of Course it was another fantastic meeting at Harts Fabric in Santa Cruz! We are so grateful for the use of their space and hospitality.
We had one new visitor at the meeting, hi Rachel!
Everyone is getting excited for the upcoming retreat on November 1st-3rd. Vice President Karen, and retreat coordinator, shared that we are 100% full with 20 attendees and 5 visitor passes! We are so excited that half of the attendees are new and the other half returning. We are looking forward to the fun we are all going to have in just a few weeks! Hurrah!
Just a reminder that we will be holding officer nominations for December’s election at the next meeting (November) and will start collecting dues for 2014 too! We are so excited about what this next year has in store for the South Bay Area Modern Quilt Guild!!
There were so many beautiful quilts shared at this month’s show and tell, here are just a few gems. As always be sure to check out all the talent on our flickr page.
Member, Adrianne showed us the book she was a part of called Modern Bee – 13 Quilts to Make with Friends. It is now available on Amazon and other retailers. We all enjoyed thumbing through her preview copy. There are so many good quilt bee ideas in it as well as fantastic advice for starting and maintaing your own bee.
