January Meeting Reminder

Just a friendly reminder that we will be having our next guild meeting on Saturday, January 28th from 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at our new location in the downtown Jacksonville Main Library on 303 N. Laura St. There is plenty of parking on the side streets or there is also a parking garage right next to the library. If you park in the garage the library will validate your ticket.

This will be our first general meeting for the 2017 year. If you haven’t come to our new location yet your in for a nice surprise. There is plenty of room to spread out and get your creative juices going. After the general meeting we have the library until they close at 6:00 p.m to stay and sew. So plan on staying after the meeting and sewing on a project of your own or just stay and chat. There is plenty of room and outlets for everyone. You can bring snacks and drinks for yourself (and others) if you’d like.

We hope to see you there!

JMQG has a New Home!

Come join us at our next official
meeting on Saturday, October 29th.   jacksonville-downtown-library-makers-space

We are so excited that thanks to the main library downtown, we will now have a permanent space just for us. The library has created the Jax Makerspace and they have invited us to use some of that space where we can hold our meetings, have sew-ins, display our quilts, and maybe hold a future Jacksonville Modern Quilt Show. This space will also give us an opportunity to share our knowledge and excitement of modern quilting to the public by holding workshops on quilting and sewing. The possibilities are endless. You’ve got to come down and see the space. The address for the downtown library is 303 N. Laura St, click here for directions. Since it is a Saturday, there is lots of parking available (for free) on the street but there is also library parking behind the library off of W. Duval St. Our meeting starts at 10:30 a.m. and goes to about noon. We will have a sew-in afterwards and people are welcome to work on anything they want or they can join in with some of us working on the QuiltCon 2017 charity quilt.

We hope to see you there!

June Meeting Start Time Change

Because of Quiltcon 2017 registration starting at 10:00 a.m. the morning of our meeting, it has been decided by members that we will have a delayed start to our general meeting. Instead of a 10:30 a.m. start it will be at 11:30 a.m. One of our members, Joan, has committed to being at the library at 10:30 a.m. to open the room in case there are any members that don’t need to register and would like to come in and start setting up if they are going to be staying for the sew-in.

Thanks Joan!
