Last week we had 27 members/guests come for some great food, wonderful sew-n-tells and lots of good chit chat.

2. May Swap - Pillow Covers
Eight people participated in the May pillow cover swap. Look at these wonderfully creative covers! Joyce will be sharing ideas for our upcoming swaps at the next meeting.
3. Meeting Dates & Location
We discussed that the meetings will continue to be on the LAST Thursday of each month. We are still searching for a "permanent home" so we don't need to keep switching locations. Please let Bianca know if you have any ideas for a meeting space that would hold our group.
The June meeting will be held on Thursday, June 27 from 6:00-8:00. (Location will be announced shortly). The theme of the June meeting will be OUR FAVORITE THINGS. Start thinking of some of your favorite sewing/quilting/crafty things. Each person is asked to bring/show/or talk about TWO of their favorite things. They could be products, notions, patterns, designers, books, magazines... anything.
4. Pencil In Sew Modern Retreat 2014
Joyce is planning our 2nd annual Sew Modern Retreat to be held once again at the Meadowbrook Inn in Blowing Rock. The dates will be April 4-6, 2014. More information and registration will be held as the date gets closer, but we hope everyone can start planning now to attend this fun weekend.
5. May Sew-N-Tell
Pictures from the May sew-n-tell have been posted over on Flickr. Lots of eye candy and inspiration can be found here http://www.flickr.com/groups/cltmqg/
