Happy New Year!

It's a new year for our guild.  We hope you are ready to dig your sewing machine out from under the gift wrap paper for another great year of designing, piecing, and quilting.

The TMQG Board had a meeting to plan this year.  Our goals are 1) to provide educational opportunities to our members, and 2) to provide lap quilts, toiletry items, and other sundries to Forsyth Co. Senior Services and the elderly members of our community.  Our meeting focused on ways to accomplish those goals.

Tentative Calendar for 2019
January - Lee Monroe on color theory 
February - opportunities for charity sewing by various members
April - Claudia Martinez - Snuggly Monkey
July - Ice Cream Social - bring an idea for a gift and information on the pattern

We are also planning on 3 sew-ins for the year in March, June, and September.  We will be scheduling these for the Friday evenings after the Tuesday meetings.  

More information for the calendar to come as we receive confirmation from our invited guests. 

Swaps are being planned, both internal and external.

For the annual raffle, we are planning on making 2 throw sized quilts.  We will be asking each member to sell $40 worth of tickets.  Raffle proceeds are used to invite quilting educators from across the country and to pay their speakers fee and travel costs.
