Nancy talked about thread, cross wound or from side to side, stacked or straight vertical on post. Some use thread stand so the thread has time to unwind for horizontal thread.

Survey Question

Pat Messinger is doing the 2019-2020 BNMQG Modern Swap. Quilters turned in a sign up sheet.  Those wanting to participate are asked to bring in a fat quarter (one of your favorite colors and or style) to the November meeting.

Laura Hartrick from the Chicago Modern Quilt Guild will be our speaker for November.

T-shirts were distributed at this meeting. There were a few left but have been spoken for.  We are also looking into additional shirt orders, long sleeve and/or sweatshirt option.  There is a minimum order we need to place to do this.
