VMQG cake 2011

We love to celebrate! Here’s a pic of our first birthday cake from June 2011.

We look forward to seeing you at the Unitarian Church of Vancouver on Monday night for the Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild’s fourth anniversary celebration! We always try to make our birthdays a fun event with more refreshments and door prizes than usual. We’ve ordered cupcakes and there are some exciting prizes waiting for you, so we’re ready to celebrate! Please consider bringing a treat and/or prize to add to the fun!

Welcome to all of our new members! We had ten members join at our May meeting and are now at 97 members. Who knows? We might break 100 at our upcoming meeting!

Thanks to all of you who volunteered to make our Maker Faire booth a success! If you lent your quilts for our booth, you can pick them up from Heather at the meeting.
