Hope everyone has had a fabulous holiday season & enjoyed the new year too. It has been very busy at SydMQG HQ the past few weeks. We renewed our Quilters’ Guild of NSW membership, finalized the first lot of meeting dates, and have been hard at work with a few surprises for new members!
Before we say goodbye to 2013, though, let’s say a huge congratulations to our Grand Prize Winner, Laura!!
Firstly, our monthly meetings! The venue has moved. We will still be at Greta’s but Greta’s has moved – not far, just a couple shops down from last year! Greta’s is now at 309A Pacific Highway Lindfield.
The new location is a bit smaller so we are limiting our Saturday meetings to hand-sewing only. (We will bring a folding table for cutting, too, but it will be a tight squeeze.) There is simply no room for sewing machines, sorry!
We will kick off this Saturday 18 January, at our usual time of 10am to 2pm.
As a result of the smaller space, the Saturday visits at Greta’s will be FREE for paid members of the guild. We will talk about payment this Saturday and official membership begins in February – this month is on the house.
You will need to RSVP by email to reserve a spot to the monthly meetings, as usual!
We are still in the process of procuring a space for the guild to meet for the BIG meetings of the year – the SUPER SEW-IN days!. These will take place on a different weekend to our normal meetings and there will be SIX per year! We will be able to bring our sewing machines, set up a couple of design walls, and we are hoping to organize swaps, destash sales, and skill-builders for these days! (Super Sew-Ins will be a little bit extra to cover room costs, we will keep you posted!)
Also new to the guild this year is a Block of the Month (BOM) free your membership!
More information can be found on the Membership Info page and all our dates will be on the Dates 2014 page. We will also keep you posted via email if anything changes!
Let us know if we’ll see you this weekend – we know we can’t wait to see you!
