Friendship Groups

Hey ya'll!  The guild is growing like wildfire and we are spread out all over the metroplex.  We are trying to put together some Friendship Groups in order to make it a little easier to connect with people a little closer to home and also as a way to "connect" with each other.  The way it works is this:  send an email to membership@dallasmodernquiltguild.org and mention that you'd like to join a Friendship Group.  State what city you live in (or near), a way to contact you (email, phone, smoke signals, etc) and whether or not daytime or evening get togethers work best for you.  We will "assemble" everyone interested into local groups.  The group can then pick a time and place and begin to meet up for little "stitch-ins".  When I have belonged to these in the past, we usually met once or twice a month at someones house and talked, sewed, ate, whatever.  It is just a fun way to spread out the fun between guild meetings and to make new friends who like to spend time doing what we all love to do!  The board members will be happy to help get these groups going in whatever way we can.  So, just shoot an email to the above address and we'll get you hooked up with a new group of quilty buddies!

June Meeting

I hope everyone is planning on coming to the June Meeting of the DMQG.  It's next Monday, June 14th at 7:00.  It will be held in our usual meeting place at City Craft.  We have a special treat in store for us.....Callie is going to share some of the great stuff she saw at Quilt Market in Minneapolis.  From what I hear, there are some amazing new fabric lines coming out in the next couple of months...Yeah!  I am quite excited to see and hear what she has to say.  See you there!   Bring a friend!!!!

I am just amazed at the great new friendships I have developed in the few short months we have been meeting.  I also hope you will all consider joining us at the next Saturday Sew on June 26th.  We have so much fun and it is where I have truly begun to develop the new friendships.  It makes me really happy to think that in November we have a full 4 day quilt retreat planned for the guild.  Talk about time to develop new friendships! (and maybe get a few UFO's done!)  Put it on your calendar and plan to join the fun.
