Sew More Sew-ins!

We’re excited about TWO upcoming sew-ins for Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild members. There’s still a chance to register if you’re looking for some social sewing time this weekend!

Treat yourself to an open sewing time where members work on their own projects in a blissful atmosphere of quilting and chatting! We supply the tables and chairs, irons, cutting mats, and tea. Donations of treats are always welcomed!

You need to bring your machine (don’t forget the presser foot!), projects, extension cord, power bar, tools, and lunch/dinner.

There is a $10 fee for each sew-in if you pre-pay by February 18th and a $15 fee at the door. Members get first opportunity on the 15 or so spaces available. If you are not a VMQG member, consider joining or email us to see if there is space available for you.

Please contact Karen (vicepresident@vancouvermodernquiltguild.ca) to register or with any questions.
