East Bay Modern Quilt Guild Monthly Meeting, April 2014

East Bay Modern Quilt Guild April 2014Terri wasn’t able to make the meeting (we missed you, Terri!) and that means that you’re stuck reading my notes this month!  So that they get posted in a timely manner, I’m keepin’ them short and to the point!  You can see more photos from the night over on our Flickr page.

The Berkeley Public Library is having a miniature quilt show that features one of Claire’s quilts.  You can see it starting May 1 at the Downtown Berkeley Library building on the 2nd floor.

Carol’s sashiko meet up is going gangbusters down in San Jose.  Want to attend?  Check out how here.  Want to start having one closer to the East Bay?  She’d love to start one more locally!  Let her know you’re interested here.

We talked about the possibility of having evening stitch ups.  That’s what I’m calling it:  A stitch up – where you get together and sew, or just hang out.  Kinda like book club, but with needles involved.  I’ll keep you posted on that!

The Vallejo Piecemakers Quilt Guild is holding it’s first ever quilt show this weekend.  Go check it out!  Joel will have 3 quilts in the show!

Heather Ross will be doing a book signing this weekend at Book Passage in SF.  We predict large crowds.

We have so many talented members and two of them have quilts in magazines!  Ann has a quilt in Modern Quilts Unlimited, and Tara has a quilt in Modern Patchwork.

Kim has some new fabric coming out soon, but it may be hush hush, so I won’t say anything else about it!

Carol brought us some of her lovely Pop Rox fabric.  She’s so good to us!  Thank you, Carol!

The Amish Quilt Challenge for the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles is ON!  Check out the details in last month’s meeting notes.

Alison recommended taking part in a project that commemorates the terrible floods that took place in Colorado last year. If you’re interested in finding out more, click the link: http://www.bouldercounty.org/flood/communityresiliency/pages/quiltproject.aspx

I’ve probably forgotten to add something…I’m out of the habit of taking good notes!  Let me know what’s missing and I’ll add it in!

Want to come to a meeting?  Everyone is welcome!  Find out about our next meeting on our calendar.

PS – You may have noticed that I started adding Instagram feeds on the right side of the page.  If you’re interested in adding yours, and you’ve come to at least two of our meetings,  just leave a comment below and it will be done!
