We will have Erin Dollar, the designer of Cotton and Flax come visit the guild on Sunday, September 9th right after our meeting. Her first line is Arryo and her second line is set to debut in August! She will give a brief lecture, followed by some Q&A. She will also have her lovely fabric with her! The cost is…. FREE!
The San Diego Quilt Show is looking for entries, and they would love for us to increase their modern category!
Enter your quilt in the show here. It only costs $10 and imagine how famous you would be if you won!
Anyone who enters a quilt into the show will be eligible for a SWEET RAFFLE PRIZE at our August meeting.
Now, until June 23 we have official SDMQG T-shirts for sale at $25 each. We have a unisex fit or a slim fit; both are available in 5 colour options. Check them out here.
All the payment and shipping is done straight through the link above and the shirts will come directly to your house! AMAZING!
These are limited edition shirts, so get your hands on one before it’s too late!
Our guild has grown a fair bit over the past few years. To reflect our growing group and to better serve the other geographical areas of San Diego, we have suggested the addition of a new board member.
At today’s guild meeting, we moved to add an official board position for outreach to Central, South and East San Diego.
This position would be open to anyone in the guild. The person would attend board meetings and guild meetings, like any other board officer. Their focus would be to extend programming to the other regions of San Diego.
Next month, at our meeting on July 8th at 11am at Quilt in a Day, we will vote on the inclusion of this position on the board. This would also be an excellent time to come up with a list of nominees. We would also like to hear your input on the sorts of activities and programming this person could potentially coordinate.
Join us at our meeting this Sunday, June 3 at 11am at Quilt in a Day in San Marcos! Bring your rummage sale items marked with a price and your name for our sale! Kim will be doing a Misty Fuse applique demo! See you there!
We still have a few spaces left for our Violet Craft workshops and trunk show! See the link here to register! We welcome anyone from the quilting community to join us!
Violet Craft is a paper piecing guru, in both English Paper Piecing and Foundation Paper Piecing, so if you have ever wanted to give these a try, but didn’t know where to start, we have the answer. Violet doesn’t travel very much, so we are very lucky to have her come and visit us. Be sure to take advantage!
