March 2019 Meeting Recap

Our March guild meeting was both informative and inspiring. We began the meeting with a reminder about the upcoming workshops.

Registration is also open for the tiny piecing (and hand quilting workshops, taught by Chawne Kimber on June 14th and 15th. Be sure to sign up for her trunk show, hosted by the guild on Friday, June 14th. Registration for the trunk show is free, but you must sign up to attend.

Karen with Machine Medics shared some details about her mobile machine repair business.  She and her husband do local pickup and return for sewing machine repairs and parts replacement. For further info, they can be contacted at

Lori shared with us about her QuiltCon adventures in Nashville.  A number of our guild members were in attendance this year, and had a great time despite the rainy weather. There were lots of great vendors, and so many beautiful quilts.  Our very own Karen had a block in the Best In Show quilt, Smile, a group quilt submitted by MQG member Leanne Chahley.

We hope you’ll make one or three or a handful of blocks and add yourself to the block lotto taking place in May.

And last, we had Sew & Tell, a time to showcase the talent of our guild members.
