November 2017 Meeting reminder

Submitted by Kathy C., President

Hello Modern Quilters,

Is Modern Traditional one of the types of modern quilting you’d like to know more about?  The Modern Quilt Guild has a webinar about that very topic!

At our next  meeting, Tuesday, November 28, we’ll be viewing  Making Traditional Modern by Shannon Page.  This webinar does a great job of both explaining and giving you great ideas for modern traditionalism.

Also, don’t forget that our pouch swap is this month.  It’s not too late to make a pouch and participate.

And finally, a reminder that this month we are made blocks for Las Vegas instead of block lotto, and you have the opportunity to bring a modern fat quarter to send to victims of the wildfires that lost their stash.  We have a generous guild!

Meet us at Christ Lutheran Church, 311 N Hershey, Normal IL.

Social time starts at 5:30 and the meeting will begin at 6.

Can’t wait to see you!
