Hi everyone.  This is Karen Ernest and I have the fun duty of being the photographer/web manager for the upcoming year.  Web manager is quite a funny term since I do NOT know what I am doing on this thing.  However, I have lots to learn and lots of fun things to share, so here goes...


Our next meeting will be Thursday, July 26 at 6:00 PM at the Morrison Library.  Our speaker will be Jennifer Roycroft from We're Sew Creative.  Jennifer's store is located near Concord Mills and carries beautiful fabrics, great notions and Babylock machines.  She will be talking about what is new and hot on the market today.  She will be bringing lots of goodies for us to check out and purchase if interested (cash and credit cards will be accepted).

Also, bring what you have working on for Sew & Tell.  Quilts, bags, garments or anything sewing and fabric related.  We want to see those lovely creations!!

Doors open at 5:45 and the meeting will start at 6:00.  Don't forget to wear your name tags.  We will have paper name tags if you forget, but we strongly encourage everyone to make and wear a creative name tag.

Going forward we plan to have our meetings on the LAST THURSDAY of the month at 6:00.  If the date or time should need to change we will let everyone know.  We are only allowed to book our meeting space 1 month in advance, but we will do our very best to stick to this schedule.

Future topics we have lined-up include applique (Kat) and paper piecing (Courtney).


Jennifer Mathis is our new Swap Captain for this upcoming year so you know we will have some fun swaps.  Our first swap will be the book exchange and it will be held in AUGUST.  Jennifer will discuss all of the details at our July meeting.


Our membership year runs from June - June.  The annual membership is $40 and is now due.  Membership forms will be available at the July meeting.  We will be collecting information for a directory we will publish in the fall (available only to members).  The forms will allow you to specify what information you would like included.  For example, if you have a blog you can let us know if you would like it included on the sidebar blogroll on the CMQG site.

Visitors are STRONGLY encouraged to attend our meetings and see what we are about.  You may attend 2 meetings for free.  We would love to have you join us.

Hope to see you on the 26th!
