Important Dates & Fun Projects

July Meeting

What a fun meeting we had last night.  A big thank you to Jennifer from We're Sew Creative for speaking to our group and bringing all of the wonderful shop items.  They have lots of new classes and BOM programs so go check them out at We're Sew Creative.

I've added some pictures from Sew & Tell to our Flickr group CMQG Flickr Group.

Upcoming Dates

Here are a couple of guild dates to put on your calendar:
  • Next Meeting - Thursday, August 30 at 6:00 (Morrison Library)
  • Sew In Dates - Saturday 9/15 & 11/10 from 10:00-2:00 (Carmel Presbyterian Church)


Want to try some new blocks, some new color combinations and have a chance to win lots of great blocks?  Then let's participate in the CMQG Block-of-the Month!

Each month a new block/color combination will be announced.  Complete 1 or more blocks and bring them to the next meeting.  We will have a drawing and one lucky winner will get all of that month's blocks!  You will get one entry per block turned in (1 block = 1 entry, 2 blocks = 2 entries, etc.).

     August BOM
  • Block - Granny Square
  • Color - Navy & Coral On A White Background
  • Due Date - At August Meeting

Tutorials for the block can be found at Blue Elephant Stitches Tutorial and I'm A Ginger Monkey Strip Piecing Tutorial.

Salt Lake Modern Guild Contest

The Salt Lake guild is having a Dresden Challenge and the prizes are wonderful - sewing machine, iron, gift certificates, fabric, notions...  The Linky Party will be September 1-6 so there is still time to check it out and sew an entry.  More information can be found here Salt Lake MQG Dresden Challenge.
