January 2021 Meeting Review

Our virtual sew day was super fun because we introduced our 2021 traveling quilt blocks. Those participating have one month to make block(s) to contribute to the quilt in their possession. Then the projects keep travelling. If we want these quilts for Christmas, we will have a couple of months to finish them as the rotation will stop in September. Eight of us are participating and here is some eye candy to prove it. Our inspiration is also provided. Of course anyone not in the rotation is welcome to add blocks if they want a challenge too.

We are set for another year with Anne joining the Executive. Thank you to Charlene for all of her support in the Co-Chair role over the past 2 years. The next meeting is on February 28th at 2:00 p.m. With a miracle it would be a sew day. Realistically, it will be virtual again so those on the mailing list please watch your email for Zoom call-in details. If you are receiving the emails and not rejoining, please advise and we will take your name off the list. We are hoping that all members will pay their annual dues of $60 by the next meeting so we can start using an updated mailing list. Happy sewing!

January 2021 Meeting

Happy New Year! The next meeting is on Sunday, January 24th. This is planned as an on-line meeting at 2:00 but we will happily change it to an in-person meeting if Covid-19 restrictions are lifted. Members are to watch your emails for details for logging in. If you are a potential new member that would like to join us, please email saskatoonmqg@gmail.com for details. New members are most welcome.

We will be holding elections at our next meeting. FYI, Anne has offered to run for a Co-Chair position as Charlene will be stepping down. If anyone else is interested in a position, please let us know via our email address above. Also, memberships at $60 for the calendar year are due in January.

It won’t be a meeting of business only. We will also be kicking off the travelling quilts. Those involved will be given the opportunity for show-and-tell of their blocks. Then we will help to distribute the “boxes” as needed. There is still time to sign up.

Meeting Agenda (2:00 to ?):

  • Icebreaker
  • Education – Inset circles
  • Show & Tell  – Travelling quilt block introductions, then Book, Blog, or Bolt. Show us what you’ve made and your works in progress. We all want to know what new and interesting things YOU know about.

Thank you for your support and friendship in 2020. We look forward to connecting in 2021.
