  • Next Meeting: Wednesday, October26th 6:30pm at MakerWorks
What to bring for the next meeting:  If you want to participate in another "Yankee Swap," bring a sewn accessory that you've made.  Can be for person or for home (i.e. a headband, a hot-pad, etc...) 


Thanks to Rossie for writing out the minutes below:


Next Sew In:  @ MakerWorks on Sunday, October 9th  noon-4pm
We're going to work on the charity quilt and our own projects.
Brenda is donating batting for the quilt.
Brenda will bring sashing for the quilt, some of us volunteered to
chip in to cover the cost of that fabric.

Next meeting: @ MakerWorks on Wednesday, October 26th  630pm
There will be show and tell as usual.
There will be another Yankee swap.  People who want to take part
should make an accessory (either for a person or the home; i.e., a
headband, a hot pad, etc)


In attendance:  Brenda, Debbie, Rossie, Ana, Emily, Natalie, Ashley,
Lynn and new member Paloma.  & ??? that arrived later.
Emily brought some amazing apple pie bars.


Old business:
(1) update of the lesson for making the Messenger Bag
We've been offered October 8th or 9th.
3 people could do that day.
It was decided to ask about days in November.

(2) update on the retreat
Ana has been researching
Toronto has suggested meeting half-way for a joint retreat.
Lynn suggested Hankard Inn near Chelsea, which would allow people to
visit even if they couldn't stay overnight.  People seemed excited
about that possibility.
The plan is to work on our own projects, not have classes etc.

(3) member cards
Ana will print them out and bring to next meeting
Brenda will send her the files and the names

New business:
(1) We don't seem to have a secretary anymore.  It was decided to
rotate the job.  Several people are happy to do it, but can't commit
to always being there.  Jenna asked that whoever does the minutes is
quick to at least send out the details about the next meeting and
sew-in.  Dates, times, supplies, plan, etc.

(2) Brighton Modern Quilt Guild may be dissolving; anyone from that
guild is welcome to come to Ann Arbor.

(3) T-Shirts.  There's a plan afoot to get silk-screening equipment
and screen our logo onto t-shirts and bags and such.  It was discussed
casually, something for next meeting's agenda.

Member Announcements:
Paloma is going to be at Quilt Market in Houston.
Natalie is going to The Sewing Summit.
Paloma is moving to South American (Argentina I think) and will be
opening the first Modern Quilt Guild when she gets there!
Lynn has a laptop case that will be in a booth at Quilt Market.
Two of our members will have their work in the 100 Days of Modern Quilts
We have at least two member entering the Modern Quilt Guild 4 Challenge
