May 2017 Meeting Recap

Hey Gang!  Thank you to those who attended our May meeting.  For those of you who were away we happily moved to our new home at Blue Bar Quilts this month!  If you haven’t heard of Blue Bar it’s a brand new quilt shop town.  Check it out!

In May we talked about…

MQG Charity Quilt – Sign ups for the committee and committee chair were gathered.  It’s not to late to join!

The Modern Stitching Affair – Wendy announced the next retreat is April 26-29, 2018. Sara Lawson will be taching her train case pattern and MMQG member Tara Curtis will be teaching us how to weave fabrics.  Then we choose our own adventure and make either a pillow cover or tote!  Each guest get generous swag bags from our sponsors and a chance to win great prizes!  Tickets go on sale June 10 at 10 a.m. $415 Learn more:

Deep Into Indigo Retreat – Jen is hosting a second all inclusive dye retreat July 14-16.  This included lodging, food, supplies and instruction. Early bird pricing available until June 15.  $550 Learn more:

Block Lotto revisited – Are you interested in coordinating a “block of the month” activity for the guild?  If yes, email

Quilt Expo -We considered having a booth at Quilt Expo in the fall, but it’s too late to reserve a spot in the non-profit area. We’ll talk about it for 2018.

Charity Quilts – Linda has a thank you card if you’d like to give it a read.  Also Maday is not going to be charity chair next year, but she does continue to donate to Hope House and YWCA. She also mentioned that the woman who coordinates quilts for Hospicewill come to pick those up at our meetings. If you have extra pillowcases or quilts, please call these groups. Maday is collecting personal items (tampons, wipes, deodorant,toothpaste, etc.—all new things) to donate.

Free Table was kickin’ it.  You’re welcome to leave sewing related items at the free table for members to take.  Anything left behind at the end of the meeting will be donated.

Hey Buddy! To make it easy for people to integrate into the Mad Modern Quilt Guild, please consider the Buddy System! Under Facebook group (Mad Modern Quilt Guild), go to Documents. Sign up to be a mentor or mentee.

Now what you all have been waiting for!  Sew and Tell from the May 11, 2017 meeting.
