Recap of August Meeting

Thanks to everyone who came out for our Summer Potluck!! We had a great day relaxing in the Gazebo, eating wonderful food, and socializing. 






We had some exciting announcements this month:

Quilting Retreat
We have shifted the dates to October 23-26 in the hopes that more can join; we currently have 3 members committed, but need a minimum of 6 to get a big enough house to have the quilting space we would like. 

Please email us at: rimodernquiltguild@gmail.com ASAP if you are interested in joining! If we don't get additional sign-ups within the next couple of weeks, we may have to cancel and try again next year. Have suggestions to make the retreat more accessible going forward? Please email your feedback; it's always welcome :)


Quilt SHOW!!!!
We have been invited to be exhibitors at the Pawtucket, RI Fine Home Furnishings Show!! This is a great opportunity to showcase our work (and offer it for sale, if we choose!)
It's taking place November 6-8, 2015 and we have about 100ft of pipe and drape to decorate with our quilts. 

**We are looking to create a committee to help with coordination for this show; please email: rimodernquiltguild@gmail.com if you would like to be part of this committee. It will entail the committee helping to develop the printed resources, coordinating the layout of the quilts to be hung, and help determine what we want to share to the public about our Guild. We need help to make this happen! Please contact us to assist :)

**We are also needing high-quality photos to be used as marketing material (most advertising is done by the show coordinator)... please email us with some photos that we can use to show the public our amazing modern work.

Now... on to our Mini Quilt Cotton & Steel Challenge Projects!







It was great taking the time to gaze upon these impressive works and discuss techniques, tools, and fabrics! 



Other Show & Tell: 











Thanks again to all who contributed food to the potluck; we have some wonderful cooks! 

See you all again next month, where we will resume our open sew and have our normal meeting hours again. See the sidebar for the next batch of meeting dates!
