This Saturday is a very busy meeting, so please don't miss it! Because we are going to be so busy we'll need to start promtly at 10AM and we'll be in the Barr conference room. This month we are covering the following:
Discussions of staying with or leaving the MQG
Electing/Voting on 2017 officers
NICU Smocks charity sew
Members, please check your emails for more details on all of these subjects! We'll see you on Saturday!
September is the AQS Quilt Show in Chattanooga. We will not be having our normal meeting. Carpool options are available. See the Facebook post to see who is attending. Ashely is also coordinating a meeting time for lunch or dinner with the Chattanooga MQG.
October is Open Sew and 2017 planning. Wow, time sure does go by fast. November is our charity sew. We will need to make a decision on what we would like to make for our charity sew as well as evaluate fabric needs. December is our Holiday Party and Stefanie Williams has already started organizing our Secret Santa Swap on Facebook.
Below are pictures from Show and Tell! Big meeting attendance means lots of show and tell. Enjoy!
We were fortunate enough to have Michelle Wilkie visit our guild to show us some of her beautiful quilts she had made as well as guide us through a design process for our quilts inspired by objects, places, and shapes that surround us every day.
Ashley organized a great Shop Hop for our group. Our day was filled with laughter, shopping, petting fabric, food, and a little Pokemon!
We started off at the Quilting Squares in Franklin. We were greeted with a demo and cookies! Our next stop was the Dancing Bobbin in Thompson Station. It was the a "first" for many of the members in the guild to visit this shop and what a great place it was! They had extra staff ready to cut fabric for all of us that swarmed the shop. Lunch was next on the agenda. We all made the drive in to Nashville to eat at ML Rose. They also had a very cool patio which is the back drop of our group photo. Near by, was Textile Fabrics. We made a quick stop here, before heading to a modern quilter's favorite shop, Craft South. Anna Maria and team greeted us with open arms, as always. The last stop on the Shop Hop was at Stitcher's Garden in Franklin. It was close to closing time so we had to make it quick. It appears as though we didn't have any thrill seekers in the group looking to break the rules, because no one sent me a photo from inside this shop.
