AUGUST 23rd MEETING

The TMQG will host a representative of June Tailor http://www.junetailor.com/Index.htm for our monthly meeting.  Tools, notions and all things sewing and quilting  will be demoed to make our sewing experience the best it can be.  ( Shhh-There might be a giveaway or two.)

Membership Drive

This month will also be the beginning of our 2017 Membership drive.  As an incentive fat quarter bundles will be given given away at the next three meetings.  When you pay your 2017 dues your name is entered in the drawing. All individuals who do not win will be held over and entered into the September drawing and then October. Advantage goes to the members whose names are in all three pots.  Membership dues are $25 and help us defray the cost of our great guest speakers.  As a paid member of the TMQG you are also considered a member of the Modern Quilt Guild with all privileges.

The minis have arrived and await the unveiling Tuesday night.  Be there for the big reveal!

Raffle Quilt

If you haven't picked up your raffle quilt  tickets see Anne Monroe.  The drawing will be held at our September meeting.  Members who sell $20 worth of tickets names will be entered into a drawing to win 50 Fat Quarters from the Lee Monroe stash. 

July recap-
     Tessa Walker was our guest.  Bags, totes, and pouches were shown by the talented Tessa.  We were all inspired by her creativity.  For those interested here are links to some patterns:

Christmas in June TMQG Meeting

Senior Services is excited that the TMQG was going to donate this month to their Christmas in July campaign. Specific info is on their website. They are always in need of adult diapers, small containers of detergent, toothpaste, and household paper products. Gifts cards are great! If members want to bring money,  a receipt will be issued. You can purchase $10 giftcards at Target. Let's fill the delivery car!

Bring a handmade item for show and tell that might be on your holiday project list for gift giving. It's not to early to start thinking about Christmas. 

Don't forget your quilts for the Mini Quilt Swap!  Can't wait to see all the creations. 
Thanks!!
