It's that time again, the third Tuesday of the month. So we're meeting at the Stitchin' Post at 5pm. We're meeting at Quiltworks in Bend, from 5 to 8. We'll do the business portion of the meeting at 6.

On the agenda:
  • Show and tell
  • group discussion: favorite resources that aren't online. Maybe it's a book you love (maybe it's not quilting but it still inspires your quilting?), or a place? or a person. I know for many of us it's each other! 
  • Ongoing challenges:
--Black to White challenge for QKS, a challenge open to any MQG member in the PNW. see for all the information. Due date in June
--MQG Riley Blake fabric challenge. Due date in July.
--COMQG cool colors challenge, due October 1st. 
  • Christy's scrappy stash buster next meeting is Wednesday this week, too! This is a just-for-fun quilt along, and many members are following along the pattern, some are just doing a few blocks. 
  • Upcoming Sew days/retreats:
May 1-3rd retreat hosted by Lindsey (that's me!)
June 13th sew day hosted by Erin. 

Remember to bring:
your show and tell
your sewing project to work on during the meeting. There's space for sewing machines or handwork.
your ideas for our group discussion--your face 'offline' resource
your nametag to be entered to win in the drawing for door prizes

Also remember that Central Oregon Shop Hop is coming up this week, starting on Thursday!

See you all there at the meeting! We love guests!
