Tammy presented three options for quilt retreat locations to the group. She will be posting the same here on flickr, and we will vote on which location to pursue for a spring retreat at the next meeting (august).
Erin gave a lovely book review. She'll be doing another at the august meeting.
Robin introduced the topic of a meetup during market/festival in the
fall for attendees from the various Modern Quilt Guild branches. She
indicated she has spoken to the co-founders of the Modern Quilt GUild,
and they're excited about a meetup. She is going to contact a few of
the hotels within walking distance of the George R> Brown to inquire
about availability of space in their lounge/bar and potential cost.
She'll report her findings at the next meeting.
Gabi informed us that her friend will be making us two logo options to
choose from. When those are ready, we will post them her on flickr so
that everyone can vote on which they prefer.
Row Robins - Gabi brought Sabrina's, and Sabrina has taken it out of
circulation to finish. Amy brought Deirdre's, and Deirdre has taken it
out of circulation to finish.
We had lots of show and tell items. Gina took pics, which she'll post soon.
We had a FQ swap and a charm swap, which we did white elephant or yankee swap style, and everyone had a great time.
Amy conducted a hexie demo for those who hadn't yet learned this fun skill.
We had a couple of guests: Erin's MIL (sorry, but i've forgotten her
name), Megan (tammy's daughter), and Robin's grandson Tristan. The two
kids were awesomely well-behaved and played together both well and
quietly (my favorite traits in children!).
