Meeting Date: January 13, 2022
Announcements: Members can still join. Send dues to Valerie Mau (check) or pay via PayPal. The changeover to the new treasurer Tara Curtis will happen next month.
Bee Sign Up: To follow up on Val and Tracy’s presentation from December, Marian and Tracy are coordinating bee sign up to match up quilters who want to join a bee. A sewing bee is a small group of people who help each other work on a quilt. For example each month a person asks for a specific block and the other people make one or two for that person. Then the next month it’s someone else’s turn to make a request. It’s sewing together in a small group. There are variations on the way the bee runs, but that’s the most popular way it’s run. To get matched with other quilters, fill out this Google form.
Friday Night Sewing: Friday night sewing continues every week on Zoom! Find the Zoom link on the Mad Mod Quilt Guild Facebook group. If you don’t use Facebook, email Mad Mod Quilt Guild for the link. You do not have to be a Mad Mod guild member to participate.
Block Lotto: Ellen is the new Block Lotto Overlord! The February theme is “I Love MMQG” with heart blocks.
Presentation Notes: Brianna shared a paper folding and cutting technique to create shapes for Hawaiian-inspired applique. Some resources and links were shared for those who want to explore Hawaiian-inspired applique.
