VMQG June 19th, 2017 Meeting Reminder

Meeting Notes

This is a quick reminder that our next meeting will be on Monday, June 19th, 2017!

It’s Anniversary Time!!!  We will have a super fun Icebreaker game this month. If any of you have come to one of the last retreats, we have a fantastic fabric strip game for everyone to enjoy!  Don’t worry, the rules are very simple and you will learn in a few seconds.  Just bring 10 strips at  2.5″ width of fabric to play in solid colors and/or low-volume prints!  If you have time, maybe bring a few extra if some people don’t have enough!

Be sure to bring extra yummy food stuffs as our break is usually a bit longer during this meeting so everyone can get to know each other!  Maybe talk about how you joined the guild!

We also want to try a little something new!  A sew-in from 12PM – 6PM on the day of the guild meeting at Michelle B’s condo room located at Knight and Kingsway! Get those projects finished up for Show & Tell!!  We all need a little extra time!
