– The icebreaker will be a discussion of our favourite modern quilting books, so you might want to scribble a few titles on a slip of paper and bring it with you.

-What do you want to know about entering a quilt show? Terry Aske will be answering your questions so that you’ll feel ready to enter a quilt in The Modern Quilt Guild Showcase at Fall Market 2012. Please send your questions to president@vancouvermodernquiltguild.ca by Wednesday, October 19th, and I’ll forward them on to Terry.

– Louise will be accepting registrations for our Sunday, November 20th Sew-in. Remember the new fees are $10 in advance, or $15 the day of the sew-in.

-If you would like to see copies of the minutes from previous guild or executive meetings please email Amy at secretary@vancouvermodernquiltguild.ca.

-Just a reminder, the deadline for our Habitat challenge is the November 17th meeting!

See you there!
