Upcoming Friday night sew-ins

Our next Sew-in is 6:00-11:00pm, Friday, January 11th

Why not start off the year by quilting with your friends? We’ve got a sew-in coming up on Friday night and we’d love to see you there!

FYI: There will be a TV crew present at the start of this sew-in to get some video of quilters in action for a short segment they’re producing on the VMQG. They will have conducted interviews with a few VMQG members (thanks to Karen and Matt for volunteering!) before the sew-in starts.

Treat yourself to an open sewing time where members work on their own projects in a blissful atmosphere of quilting and chatting! Work on your own WIPs, finish your name tag challenge, or get going with your Madrona Road project.

You can sign up by emailing Holly at president@vancouvermodernquiltguild.ca. 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 foot pedal!), supplies for your projects, extension cord, power bar, tools, and dinner.

 If you can’t make this week’s sew-in, we’ve scheduled additional dates. You can sign up for these at our January meeting:

 6:00-11:00pm, Friday, February 8th
and 6:00-11:00pm, Friday, March 8th
