Stitch Modern was a huge success! Thank you everybody who participated and made it so wonderful. We had a great turn-out at all of the events and got lots of positive feedback about what a great show we had. Stacey and Birgit, as usual, kept the ball rolling and on track for the entire time so we presented them with a small handmade bag, booze and chocolates! Thanks again, ladies!
One last thing to take care of from Stitch Modern are the charity quilts for WDDC. So many wonderful blocks were made that we will be able to complete two twin sized quilts for them. TWO! How exciting! We are in the works of scheduling a sew day at the library to help finish them. If you would like to help in any way, stay tuned!
The four modern quilt guilds in the area (East Bay, Bay Area, North Bay and South Bay Area) have been invited by the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles to strut their stuff by making quilts inspired by the upcoming exhibit, Antique Ohio Amish Quilts from the Darwin Bearley Collection. Quilts will need to be finished by November and be inspired by the Amish quilts in the collection. More details to follow!
Mark your calendars! We are holding a Spring Stash Cleaning during our next meeting in March. If you have fabric in your stash that you just don’t think you will use, bring it to the meeting! And, perhaps you will find something else to take home!
What a great show and tell we had! Lots of new faces and inspiring projects! I hope to see everyone at the next meeting!
