The DAM Girls are enjoying each other sewing, laughing and getting to know each other better. Our retreat is at Rose Villa Retreat Center in Lainsburg, MI.
This is our second retreat at this location. The entertainment for the night was the high school basketball team won their division and 2 fire trucks and the team bus driving into town and everyone outside cheering on the team.
DAM Girl Vicky Gaines is the Detroit Area Modern Quilt Guild President.
How long have you been quilting?
I started sewing when I was about 10…..just started with quilting a few years ago.
Who introduced you to quilting or how did you start quilting?
My sister is a quilter and she is the one who taught me to sew. I never had much interest in the quilting ….too traditional and perfect for my liking. I think that is what drew me into the Modern Quilting.
Those DAM Girls has a wonderful time at our monthly meeting yesterday. We had 2 new visitors joining us yesterday and one of those visitors became a member.
For those people who are attending QuiltCon, there is a wonderful App to download on your cellphone. This App list up-to-date information regarding classes, lectures and other events that will take place during QuiltCon.
The members of the guild turned in their Charity Quilt Bee Blocks for the month of February. Each month we will have a volunteer to put the quilt together. For this month our President, Vicky will be constructing the quilt. Our wonderful Charity Quilt Bee Chairperson gave us our color inspiration for the month of March. We can’t wait to see what each person comes up with.
