First Real Sew Day in 3 Years

With the start of 2023, Eugene Modern Quilt Guild returned to mostly in-person meetings and events. Yay! It's been a long three years.  Since January, our monthly meetings are back at the Eugene Garden Club and it has been great to see members face to face, especially those who joined during the pandemic. We are still holding our monthly Virtual Sew Days through Google Meet as we have found it is kind of nice to not have to pack up our sewing spaces and yet still be able to chat, ask advice, and show off what we are working on with our quilty friends.  

That said, we recently held a real in-person Sew Day for the first time in 3 years and it was great! There was a wonderful turnout of members plus one guest, lots of sewing accomplished, more than enough snacks, and plenty of time for visiting and sharing advice. Also, several of us worked on our EMQG mini quilts for the first installment of "What Is Modern Quilting?".  More on that in a later post...

Here is a peek into our fun day:

So good to enjoy the day together again!
