Welcome April Kier

We are thrilled to welcome  April Kier as our newest JMQG member,  when she  joined us for the Sew-In on Saturday, September 20th.

April is new to quilting and quickly mastered foundation paper piecing.  She also demonstrated she knows how to set up a comfortable and well organized sewing area.

We had a great turnout with Angie, April, Candi, Jen, Symone and Yvonne.   Jessie and Valerie also stopped in to pick up their T-Shirt and fabric bundles for both the QuiltCon Charity Quilt Challenge and the Michael Miller Cotton Couture Challenge.

Rules for the Michael Miller Challenge can be found here  Michael Miller Spring Cotton Couture Challenge and the QuiltCon entry rules and sample entry form (which must be completed online) can be found here QuiltCon 2015 Entries – Rules.

There are still a couple of bundles for each challenge left, so if you want one, please contact us asap.  Contact Yvonne, if you haven’t paid or received your T-Shirt.  We’re wearing these on Saturday, September 27 at Quiltfest.

Personalizing your T Shirt is always an option.

We had a great time and lots of laughs at the Sew-In.  Special thanks to KC and Jen for providing the bagels and cream cheese and April for bringing in the chocolates.

Hope to see you all on Saturday at Quiltfest.

  1. I will not be able to participate on Dec 13, due to my teaching a ladies Bible class. I didn’t realize that the 13th was the 2nd Saturday of Dec. I didn’t volunteer for Sunday because I go to worship on Sunday. I will not be renewing my membership. I have enjoyed the time with you all and if there is anything I can do for you, fabric, etc., please call or email. I k now that you all will do well as a modern quilt guild, I was not critical of your way of doing things, it is not the way I “can” do things and be comfortable with “fun” and “therapy” and I just want to have fun and learn, but doing it in a way that I feel comfortable with you all, but especially myself. I tried to explain it and I am sorry if I “offended” anyone. Good luck and if you all have a sell to help the guild I will be happy to donate a bird or something that I make. Love
