East Bay Modern Quilt Guild Meeting Notes for April 26, 2011

It’s Stacey again, writing the notes!  Thank you so much to Cyn, Joel, Sharona, and everyone else who “took care of business” last month.  You guys did an excellent job!

This month, the meeting theme was “tools.”  Specifically, our favorite quilting/sewing tools.  Quite a few people brought in some very interesting items.  Here’s a list:

*By the way, the links provided above are not endorsing places to order from, they are merely for informational purposes!  Always check your local quilt store first!

You can see lots of great photos from the meeting over on Flickr.  Some of the things discussed were:

Lauren’s cupcakes. Birgit’s impatience with binding (and all things “precise”). Dan’s (not the man) latest “creation.” Dan’s (the man) awesome new quilts. Ellen’s new line of fabric, created with her mom, Cathy. Spoonflower. Lauren’s antique, embroidered mandarin skirt and how to display it. Deanna’s new studio and the possibility of sew playdates. Purl Bee’s Tie pattern.  Anna Maria Horner’s Taxi ToteJudi Blaydon‘s tomato block.

What did I leave out?  Ah yes, adding your blog feed to the Facebook page and the web page.  To do so, you must first complete these steps:

  1. Attend at least 2 of our meetings!  They’re held the last Tuesday of every month.  Check the calendar for more info!
  2. Join Networked Blogs on Facebook
  3. Let me know by writing on the group wall.
  4. Add your feed to the website by clicking on the button in the right side of the blog and leaving a comment.

Also, if you know of a great sew/quilt event in the Bay Area (this includes classes, sales, etc.), leave a note on the Facebook wall and I’ll add it to our calendar!

Next meeting is Tuesday, May 31 from 6:30 until 8:30 at New Pieces in Berkeley.  See you then!
