BNMQG October Meeting – Hands on Stations

Our next meeting is Tuesday, October 25th – social time at 5:30 pm CST with meeting starting at 6:00 pm. We will be doing a dual meeting, but I am trying something new, so bear with us as we make this attempt!

Hands on stations will include quilted greeting cards (Nancy P.), decorative quilting threads (Vickie A.), facings (Betty W.), envelope pillows (Barb S.), and zipper bottom pillows (Pat S.). Just a hint that the last two stations might come in handy for our holiday swap….

Thanks to the BNMQG members and board members for volunteering their time and talents!

For those taking the Quilted Coat Class with Erin Grogan from LoveSewModern , our second class is this Saturday, October 22nd from 9am CST to 12pm CST via Zoom. Pocket pattern was received from Erin Grogan today and was emailed out today. Can’t wait to see what everyone has done!

We are scheduling a Zoom Sew Day on Tuesday, November 8th from 7 pm CST to 9 pm CST. Join for however long you like and sew on whatever you want to sew (could be finishing up 10th Anniversary Improv Log Cabin quilt tops – I know I need to get some finished!).

Looking forward to seeing everyone next week!

The new Board was introduced consisting of Lisa B., President; Pat S., Vice President; Anita T., Treasurer; and Barb S., Secretary.    Betty W. was re-appointed by the Board to serve as Executive Director.

Members were given an ice breaker handout and challenged to “Name that Block”.   Even though several members do traditional quilting as well as modern quilting, it proved to be quite challenging.   The game gave everyone a chance to mingle with members at different tables and those they may not know very well.  Nancy P. gave the answers to the blocks.
