Coming Up

The first official meeting of the Central Jersey Modern Quilt Guild is coming up.  Will you be there?

The meeting stats are:
Tuesday January 10th @ 7pm
Pennington Quilt Works, Pennington NJ

We will (hopefully) be electing officers at this meeting, so we hope to have a large attendance.  If you weren't at our organizational meeting and have a desire to be an officer (pres, VP, secretary, treasurer), email me ASAP and we'll discuss the responsibilities.

We will be doing some fabric play.  Bring 10-20 fabrics (fat quarters or larger, marked with your name on masking tape).  They will not be cut, so don't worry, you'll get them back intact.  We'll get to know each other a bit better by challenging our fabric selection skills.

The challenge for this first meeting is scraps.  Bring a quilt (to this meeting) that uses at least 50 different fabrics and is still modern looking...

We'll also have general show and tell so please bring your latest project.

I have set up a Big Tent group for our guild.  I'll be sending out invites to join to all the emails we currently have on file.  If you're new and didn't make our organizational meeting, please send me an email and I'll send out your invite.  The memberships will be guest memberships until you have paid your dues.  Dues of $50 be can be paid this month or next month.  Guests can come to one meeting free then pay $5 to come to another meeting but then they must join.

I'd really like everyone to RSVP on Big Tent.  Of course, we won't kick you out if you don't and I don't mind if you do it last minute (well, a few hours before the meeting) but it really helps us to have an idea how many are coming.

Can't wait to see you all there!
