We had another informative and wonder monthly meeting. Here are a few snapshots of what went on during our time together.
If you would like to see more pictures of what our guild members are making, please visit our Instagram Page, DAMQG.
Those DAM Girls are offering an Applique Class on September 24, 2016, from 10 am to 4pm. We are inviting anyone that is in the Detroit Metro Area that would like to make a Pebbles Flintstone Quilt.
Due to the Winter Weather Advisory, the Board has decided to cancel this evenings meeting. We have rescheduled the meeting for this coming Thursday, March 3rd at 6:30pm (same time and place). We hope that everyone will be able to attend the rescheduled meeting.
Sorry for any inconvenience that this scheduling change may make.
Please contact the Board, at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or concerns.
The DAMQG Board
Those DAM Girls had a nice meeting today in our new location. We had several new visitors that came out to the meeting. The DAM Girls also participate in our DAM Charity Blocks. These are the blocks that were collect today for September.
Those DAM Girls had another wonderful meeting tonight.
We had one guest to attend our meeting, Haley from the Ann Arbor Modern Guild.
12 of the DAM Girls are participating in the Tulsa, OK Modern Quilt Guild. We are swapping pillows and our swap partners were passed out today. The next steps is for everyone to create Mosaic Inspiration Boards on Instagram so that your partner knows what style you like. Our swap projects are due the end of August.
The DAMQG started a tradition of “Pay it Forward”. A member who has gone above and beyond working with and for the guild is selected. Members secretly contribute to fill a tin (usually to overflowing) and present it to the “Pay it Forward” recipient. (I foresee all the members will be recipients as some point.) This month’s recipient is Barb DeVilbiss. Barb long arm quilts all of our charity quilts and because we have such a giving group she is probably doing one at least once a month. Thanks, Barb.
We had a special guest this month – 1 month old Henry O’Malley. Congrats to our Treasurer, Amanda, on her bundle of joy.
The guild had a charm pack exchange. Here are some of the goodies resulting from the exchange-
