Monday, July 28: Organizational Gathering
7 to 8:30 pm, West Tisbury Library, Conference Rooms on lower level
Together, we will plan our first charity quilt project. Click HERE for more information. That said, we know that it is summer, and it is not possible for many Members to participate in Monday evening gatherings. So come if you can, join the conversation and participate in planning. Alternatively, bring an individual work-in-progress and/or just join the conversation about the charity quilt project and the future of the Guild. If decisions need to be made, or we need input, we will survey all members via email.
Wednesday, August 6: iSpy Quilts
We will work together to cut fabrics for the iSpy quilts/
Katherine Long will demo free motion quilting, and you will be able to practice. Bring nothing! Katherine has everything you need.
1 to 3:00 pm, Oak Bluffs Library, Project Room on lower level.
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.
