FWMQG October 2016 Meeting Recap

I love how people are getting to the meetings a little early and visiting, signing in, getting to know each other, and looking at the amazing bee blocks our Maker Bees Bee Group are making. This month’s blocks were for Denee’. She picked a great pattern and is very happy with the results. I think we have a nice groove going with the sign in table being at the door. I know I like being able to see everyone as they come in. If the meeting starts and you get there late, don’t worry, the board members are making a...

We had 27 members show up, two of those signed up as new members, and one guest. We now have 56 members and hope to keep growing and...

FWMQG August 2016 Meeting Recap

If you missed August’s guild meeting, you missed action, education and beauty. But don’t worry, we took pictures of it all!!After we got the business out of the way, we talked about #quiltsforpeace. So many people from all over the world made it happen. At the time of the meeting, many of our members had sewn together blocks, put together quilt tops, donated batting, basted quilts, quilted and bound over 20 quilts. To reward all the hard work, we asked Fat Quarter Shop for a donation of fat quarters so we could give them to members who made this possible....

We had a celebration tonight before the meeting. We celebrated reaching our pillowcase donations goal of 150. Pat yourself on the back for a job well done.
