Monday, September 8th: Organizational Gathering
7 to 8:30 pm, West Tisbury Library, Conference Rooms on lower level
Bring a project you are working on -- or help us cut fabric squares for our first charity quilt project -- iSpy quilts! If you have child-friendly fabric to donate, please bring it.
That said, we know that it is summer, and it is not possible for many Members to participate in Monday evening gatherings.

Thursday, August 21st to 24th: Kick-Off at the Ag Fair
The official kick-off of the MV Modern Quilt Guild will be at the Ag Fair where we will have a table in the Fiber Tent. We hope that quilters who have not heard about us, or made it to a 'gathering,' will (naturally) drop by the Fiber tent and find one of us underneath a banner of our logo. We will have information available for potential members. [A note for Founding Members: we will be looking for members to volunteer.] Please check back for details.
Wednesday, August 27th: Workshop by Mary Ruth Flores (a Founding Member)
1 to 4 pm, Oak Bluffs Library, Project Room on lower level
Mary-Ruth will be teaching us to make a "Twisty Thread Catcher" using fat quarters. This is a packable scrap container for your thread cut offs, and other small soft items, that you can take to Guild meetings, Bees, Classes or anywhere.
The kit fee is $5. All you need to bring is a thread scissor (and $5).
Third week in September: First 'official' Monthly Business Meeting:
