Meeting Notes: August

C&T Publishing are having a sale! For this weekend only, they are having their online Summer Sizzler Blowout Sale. Then for those in the area, on Sept. 7th they are having their annual warehouse sale. It’s a great deal, so make sure you check it out.

The date for the retreat has been finalized for the weekend of Oct. 25! If you are a member of EBMQG and would like to go, please leave a comment on our google group under the thread RETREAT. Don’t have access to the google group and you’re a member? Leave a comment here and we will followup with you!

The Modern Quilt Guild is now open for individual membership!

A new quilt store is now open in Novato! Quilt Elegance is located in the beautiful Bel Marin Keys, but they have an online shop for those out of the area. They are able to carry high quality quilting cottons at $7.99/ yd! They carry all sorts of things to finish your projects and classes are available as well. Please support a local business and check them out!

One of our members, Pati, is now a contributor to the wonderful blog, See How We Sew. Her first blog contribution is a fascinating look in her block experiment. My favorite is the Jack’s Delight block in round 3!

Patterns Gone Digital came highly recommended for those of you thinking of getting into the pattern business.

Stitch Modern is just around the corner and we need to get planning! For those that want to participate in the process, please let us know. We will need people to finalize and organize events. Some ideas that were brought up:

  1. Publishing a book and authors forum.
  2. Selling on Etsy/ quilting as a business forum.
  3. Include local fabric stores with a shop hop.
  4. Kid day events.
  5. Do demos.
