Zoom opportunities for BNMQG members!

As a result of our poll at the meeting and your comments, we are offering the following ZOOM opportunities.  You will need to sign up and there is a limit of 6 people in each of the Tech Tuesday sessions.     If you are unable to get into one of the Tech Tuesday sessions that you are interested in because of number of participants, please send an email to Kathy C.  and we’ll try and schedule another session.  There is no limit for our Stitchin’ Saturday but you need to sign up to get a zoom invitation.  For any of these Zoom events, sign up on Signup Genius (the link is in the member area). You will also get an email from Signup Genius – one for Tech Tuesdays and another for Stitchin’ Saturday.

May 2020 BNMQG Newsletter

Hi Modern Quilters,

I have been quilting and watching a lot of webinars on designers, color, design, and quilting.  There is a lot of good information out there.  Here are some things I’ve enjoyed.  There are many others, but I’ll leave those for another newsletter…. Enjoy.

It was awesome to see faces again and share quilts and ideas at our first ZOOM meeting in April.  I’m hoping we have even more members join us this month.  Please encourage your BNMQG friends to participate.  Join us at 5:30 for a social time and as always, we’ll start the meeting at 6pm with announcements and committee reports, followed by a virtual quilt show of our minis (please post your mini pics in BNMQG so I can make a mini slide show), show and tell (of course), and a presentation about using Instagram by Kathy Cook.

Just think how technically advanced you will be after we have our virtual meetings!

JOIN US – Put a reminder in your phone and join us for our monthly meeting on Tuesday night (May 26) from 6 pm – 8 pm via ZOOM.  Join anytime from 5:30-6:00 for a social time and bring your own treats to social hour.  Watch your email – you should have received a link in your email to get into Zoom for the meeting.   ** The email came from Lisa B from her work email at District87.org.  We chose ZOOM because it is the best platform to use as it works easily for people with all sorts of tech skills.  The email that you receive will have options for joining the meeting.  Read the email to see those options.   If you haven’t done ZOOM before, please join early in case you have any technical questions!
