Our December Guild Meeting

Thanks to everyone who made it out to our December meeting! We had a really great turnout, with nine of us in attendance, and I think fun was had by all :)

We chatted about our upcoming meetings, currently slated for:

January 19, 2012 at 11AM at the Jimmie B Keel library in Tampa
February 9, 2013 at 10AM at Inspire Quilting & Sewing in Plant City

Please remember that if you plan to attend, please RSVP either by leaving a comment here or by RSVP'ing in our Facebook group.

At the meeting, we discussed the current guild challenge, the Negative Space challenge, and collectively decided to put the challenge on hold for the time-being, due to guild members' time constraints and the impending Madrona Road challenge, sponsored by Michael Miller Fabrics. Stay tuned for more information about the Madrona Road challenge, including sign-ups and details, coming soon, as well as a revival of the Negative Space Challenge some time in 2013.

We had a wonderful amount of projects to see for Sew & Share this month, from beautiful English paper piecing to applique and string piecing and so forth. Unfortunately, the pictures I took seem to have gotten eaten by my camera's memory card. I'm reformatting is as I type this, so hopefully next month, we'll have photos to share.

We also chatted about ideas for the guild over the next year, since 2013 is merely a month away. Ideas ranged from sewing days with a certain technique or focus, like free motion quilting or foundation paper piecing, a day or weekend guild retreat, a block swap or an add-a-border block project, a swap with another modern quilt guild, and so forth. There's definitely plenty of ideas to get us rolling into 2013.

I hope to see at our next meeting. Cheers!
