December 2015 Meeting Recap

Thank you for attending our December 2015 Meeting!

We had a fun and important meeting this past Saturday. Here is the recap of what happened....

Sue A. and Jenn B. have introduced and are spearheading The Mighty Lucky Quilting Club. There was enough interest to start this group within our guild (and receive a 10% guild discount) for this monthly subscription club. A popular quilt designer/teacher will teach a different concept for you to try each month of the year.  You can sign up for the year or monthly.  The first meeting for this group will be at 1:00 pm before the January 9, 2016 meeting. If you are a paid RIMQG member, you can join the FB Group (see our FB page for members).   http://luckyspool.com/collections/patterns/products/mighty-lucky-quilting-club 

Glamp Stitchalot:  Charity and Jen S. shared their experience of attending this quilt retreat. They donned their retreat t-shirts while telling us stories of rubbing elbows with the likes of Tula Pink!



Group Brainstorm for 2016!  Members discussed the activities, presentations and direction they'd like to see for the Guild in the coming year.

Postcard Swap - Here is a sample of the adorable postcards our talented and creative members sent to each other!







Charity Committee:  Denise revealed the next completed charity quilt which was committee pieced and quilted by Denise. It was decided that it would be donated to a local little girl who has recently beaten leukemia!

Member Show and Tell:
 Jenn shared her table runner using quilt as you go technique.

 Charity made a mini applique Thimble Blossoms quilt pattern.
