UPDATE: The Modern Quilt Guild announced our new fabric challenge. We will also be discussing sign ups for this challenge at the meeting.

It's that time again! It's the third Tuesday so we're meeting at Stitchin' Post on Tuesday from 5pm to 8pm.

Bring a project to work on (there's plenty of table space for machines and projects), and some show and tell if you have it. Or just bring yourself and come join us!

We'll do the business portion at 6pm. On the agenda:
--our member cards have arrived! Get yours at the meeting.

--We have another challenge opportunity for members! The exhibit is called Modern Metallic and will be shown at the Quilt Knit Stitch show in Portland this fall. This challenge includes all Pacific Northwest Modern Quilt Guilds. Online applications are open from April 4th to May 2nd. If you would like to make a quilt to apply for this exhibit, Robert Kaufman has offered to provide challenge participants with three fat quarters for their challenge quilts. We will order and distribute this fabric to challenge participants as a guild. Please contact Lindsey if you have any questions at all, or if you would like to participate in the challenge (or sign up at the meeting).
