Our July meeting will be held this Saturday at the Jimmie B. Keel library at 10am, in meeting room #2 at the back right side of the library. Please feel free to bring up to two items for Sew and Share. We'll be discussing the current guild challenge, the Nametag Challenge, as well as future meeting plans and other challenges and activities you can be a part of.

If you cannot make this meeting, our next meeting will be held on August 18th at 10 a.m.

July Meeting/Sew Day update

I am so excited at the number of folks planning to turn out for our next guild meeting next Saturday, July 21st. We have reached our maximum capacity for the Sew Day for this month. All guild members are welcome to come for the guild meeting, which will be at 10am, however, but due to other existing events at the library that day, we are in a smaller room than usual. In the future, I'll make sure that we get the largest room possible, now that our group is growing. Thanks for your understanding!

Name Tag Challenge

This month, we'll be having our first Sew Day. I think it's going to be really fun to get together and work on some sewing together.

Since we are a new guild and we are all still working on getting to know each other, I think it's a great time to have our first guild challenge: The Name Tag Challenge!  At our August meeting, we'll have a show-and-tell for all finished name tags, but feel free to wear yours to our July Sew Day if you're done by then!  Better yet, feel free to work on yours at our Sew Day!

The only requirement for the challenge is that it have your name on it somewhere.  It can be as simple or elaborate as you want, and can be a clip-on tag or a lanyard-style tag, whichever you'd prefer.

Need some inspiration?  Check out some of these really fun name tags made by other Modern Quilt Guild members!
