We had another virtual meeting this month. We opened the meeting welcoming our new members. Thanks for joining our guild, we have lots planned for this year! Be sure to view our gallery of finished projects, WIP, and sew n’ tell. There is an abundance of talent showcased this month, Enjoy!
WIP Challenge: February’s WIP is # 6. We look forward to seeing your finished projects next month.
Tara wowed us with her presentation: “Take Great Pictures of Your Quilts” ”. Her presentation was full of helpful suggestions, things to consider and extensive examples. Members have exclusive access to this video in our private group.

2021 Decluttering Challenge / Auction!
We would like to support your organizing by adding a fun twist – an Online Auction to raise funds for the Guild. As you declutter, we would like Guild members to set aside any fabric (yardage, pre-cuts, cut-offs), books, magazines, notions, patterns, selvages, maybe even UFO’s – neatly packaged, etc. (anything sewing/quilting related) that you are willing to donate to the Guild. No item too small – we will bundle or create mystery bags! Information on drop off locations and dates will follow in an email
2021 Quilt Con Charity Quilt
Karen provided an update on the NMQG Charity Quilt that will be donated to the Sacred Water Circle in Peterborough, ON. This is an Indigenous group focusing on environmental water concerns and has a well-developed program and the ability to hold a raffle with the donated quilt. They focus on environmental water protection through festivals, training programs, etc. I think this is a great fit for our Charity Quilt
Next (Virtual) Meeting: Thursday March 11 @ 7pm.
