Our former VMQG member and Executive member, Stacey Day, has recently launched a fabulous new book, Child’s Play Quilts. We are pleased that Stacey will be our guest speaker at our June meeting and will be doing a trunk show and book signing for us.
Stacey has been published in many magazines, including American Quilter, McCall’s Quilting, Modern Quilts Unlimited and Quiltcon Magazine. She was a lecturer and teacher at Quilt Canada this past weekend. Stacey also designs quilts for Tula Pink and will be teaching alongside Tula on a quilting cruise this August.
At the meeting Stacey will have copies of her new book for purchase for $30 cash or $31.50 via Square.
Also remember that the June meeting is the last time to register your quilts in person for the VMQG Modern Quilt Showcase which will be held in August. See blog post regarding registration details here.
The quilt show committee members will be available at the meeting to take photos of the quilts for you at the meeting if you aren’t able to get your own pictures (if you want to take advantage of this, please bring your quilts). If you miss the meeting you are still able to register your quilt online until the end of June.
