September 2021 EMQG General Meeting

EMQG General Meeting

September 8, 2021


Slow Stitch met in the Rose Garden Thursday, September 2nd.


Ken explained our meetings will continue to be via Zoom, possibly until next spring.


Nela explained she has put together packets for the Quiltcon Community Outreach Quilt Challenge. The theme is ‘angles’ and we will make Stars and have six colors to use. Each packet should make at least three blocks and need to mix/match the colors (one star color and one background color). Blocks need to be 4”, 8” and 12” finished sizes so make them 4 1/2", 8 1/2" and 12 1/2". Nela asks that you press seams open unless you choose to do paper piecing. Stars can be wonky and have any number of points. Blocks need to be completed and returned to the guild mailbox by the next meeting on October 13th. Please make sure to return all leftover fabrics.


Volunteering for next year’s leadership roles are:

President (aka Puppet Master): Nela

Vice President (aka assistant Puppet Master): Sorrel

Secretary: Missy

Treasurer: Linda Jo

Photographer: Anne

Helper with program and activities: Jill

Official voting will be help at next month’s general meeting.


The next Zoom sew date will be Saturday, September 25th from 10:00am to 4:00pm. More details and a Zoom link to follow.
