January 19th meeting reminder

Our next meeting is 7:00pm, Monday, January 19th

A few reminders:

1) As it’s the first month of the year, we thought it would be fun to share our first quilts! If you have access to your first quilt, please bring it to show and tell at tomorrow night’s meeting. If your quilt isn’t in your possession anymore, perhaps you can just share a story about it! (sorry for the extremely late notice!)

2) Our UFO Challenge is kicking off again for 2015 and it’s time to sign up! Bring a list of your unfinished projects that you’d like to complete by the fall. Full details in our blog post.

3) Mini Fabric Challenge: Members can pick up their Cotton + Steel 10″ x 10″ squares for the mini fabric challenge until break time. As you’re working on your challenge, be sure to share it using the hashtag #vmqgcottonandsteel
