April 19th Guild Meeting

Our next meeting is at 7:00pm on Thursday, April 19th, 2012. We’ll be hearing some great binding tips from Janet and Terry. We’ve got an Earth Day-themed challenge for you as well!

What: Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild Meeting
When: 7:00-9:00pm, Thursday, April 19th, 2012 (doors open at 6:30pm)
Where: Room C509, Langara College, 100 West 49th Avenue, Vancouver (on W 49th between Cambie and Main)
What to bring:
– member card, dues for 2011/12 ($50) or guest fee ($5)
– $10 to register for our May sew-in
– a mug
– your name tag
– a modern quilt to share (and the mug rug you received in the swap if you participated!)
– your finished Starry Night wonky star block/s (each block gives you a chance to win a set of blocks!)

Directions: Click to view Langara College’s campus map and Vancouver map. Room C509 is in Building C (link to map of Building C) which also houses the bookstore. From the parking lot, walk east towards the main campus, and turn right immediately past the bookstore. Go in the next set of doors on your right and take the elevator straight ahead of you up to the fifth floor. (Ignore the set of elevators on your left as they don’t go up to the fifth floor). Turn left out of the elevator and you’ll be at Room C509!
Parking: The parking fee is a $3 flat rate after 5pm. The entrance to the parking lot is off of W 49th Ave, just west of the campus. (the entrance is marked by the little red triangle at the top left corner of this campus directory). You pay for parking in the lobby of the library (Building L), not in the parking lot, so be sure to remember your parking spot number. There is limited street parking in the area but you may be lucky enough to find a free spot!

Transit: The campus is just two blocks from the Langara-49th Ave Canada Line stop. The 49 stops just outside the campus.
Contact: Email president@vancouvermodernquiltguild.ca if you have any questions.
