We had so much to talk about in June's meeting! Members, please see the newsletter and our Bigtent site for more about upcoming events including sewcials and workshops. You can also find information about the Orlando MQG heart quilt drive, including a link to the block instructions, in the discussion posted by Jess S. on Bigtent.

Meg Cox gave us a short lecture on the state of digital printing in the fabric industry. She discussed the differences between digital printing and traditional screen printing, the ranges of colors, and why some manufacturers have embraced the process and why others have not. She brought in examples from a few companies including Hoffman and Hawthorne Threads. Here are a few:
