Get Ready, Get Set....Sew!

Attention RIMQG Quilters!!


Our recent Sewing Day was such a success we are happy to announce we'll be having Open Sewing Days from 9-2, before each Saturday meeting from now through September. The only exception will be for May and June, where we will be meeting in the Community Room.

No need to RSVP for Open Sewing Days. If we do another Workshop (which we will be doing!) we'll send out an RSVP Sheet.  You do need to be a current RIMQG member to participate.

Happy Modern Quilters!

Wrap-Up on Sewing Day!  We had a great group of quilters who were anxious to get out of their studios for some quilting, chatting and sharing. Thank you to Sue A. for leading a workshop of "Slice and Insert" We will collect blocks from everyone to put together a quilt to be given to The Cumberland Library as a thank you! Blocks are due in May.  Contact us if you would like to get some fabric (gray and oranges) to make a block to contribute.
