September Happenings

Thank you so much to those who helped make our day out at the Farmer's Market a great success!  We had such a great response from the market attendees and over 20 people expressed an interest in learning more about our little guild!

We have started two new activities: freebie table at the Sew Day and a lending library available at both events.  The freebie table is for you to pass on any fabric, patterns, etc that you don't want.  If you have books that you don't want anymore (quilting/sewing/etc related), consider donating them to the Guild lending library.  Members can check out books at meetings.

Our September events include our Monthly Meeting on the 2nd Wednesday, which is  Sept 11th, and our Sew Day on the last Saturday, which is September 28th.  Both will be at the Market of Choice meeting room.

Monthly Meeting, 9/11, 7pm
Our plan for this meeting had been to hold elections and vote on by-laws and dues.  We will have our usual meeting, including introductions, show and tell (bring all your summer projects!), secret swap (the theme is FALL), a short discussion of the elections/by-laws/dues, a fun tutorial, and a door prize.  Don't forget to work on your nametags -- and if you need fabric for it, you can pick it up at the meeting.

Sew Day,  Sept 28th Noon-6pm
Bring your machine and projects and sew with us!  Extra irons, ironing surfaces, rotary cutters/mats, and extension cords are always helpful -- just be sure to label anything you are sharing.  Bring anything you want to share for the freebie table.

BTW, if you have a fun technique or skill that you would like to share with the group at either event, please let me know.

See you on the 11th and the 28th and happy sewing

CMQG at the Farmer's Market!

Thanks to everyone who participated in the first anniversary event at the Corvallis Farmer's Market this past Saturday. It was so much fun. We had a beautiful booth thanks to the lovely organizers of the Farmer’s Market, Rebecca Landis and Vonda Peters.  And we had a little help from the fabulous sewn goods of our members.  It looked awesome if I do say so myself.  
#corvallismodernquiltguild booth  this is so fun.

It was fun to reach out to our community and we did seem to talk to people for the entire time we were there.  Who knew there would be this much interest in modern quilts!?
