What happens at retreat
doesn't always stay at retreat! 😉
It looks like a wonderful time was had by all!
Raffle Quilt Sew Day!
Tuesday, March 28th at the Gmeiner from 12-4. Please bring sewing machines and tools to sew string blocks. If you have strings to share, they should be 1 1/4” - 2 1/2” in width. Lengths can vary, but width of fabric, or width of a fat quarter would be great. Contact Tess with questions or for more information.
The March meeting of the MLQG was held Monday, March 20th. The program, Healthy Posture and Avoiding RSI, was presented by David Cummings, Mansfield YMCA. Remember to stop and stretch every hour to avoid repeated stress injuries during a marathon quilting session!
Fleece, flannel, minkee, satin blanket binding, couched satin cording, hair elastics strung on ribbon, velcro, micro quilting, prairie point flaps, embroidery, woven ribbons, crinkle mylar, and large plastic bottle caps tucked between the layers. They all feel so good and will help keep restless hands busy!
Update for the MLQG “SMALL PROJECTS” Mini-Retreat scheduled for tomorrow, Monday, March 13, 2023.
There is ❄️ SNOW ❄️ in the forecast 🥶 so we have decided to give everyone a little extra time in the morning and start an HOUR LATER! Doors will open at 9:30 to set up and we will begin at 10:00 and sew till 4:00.
❄️ Please note if NTSD cancels school, the mini-retreat will be cancelled as well. ❄️
Thanks to all those who participate in the guild's outreach projects all of these quilts and more are on their way to children, seniors, veterans, and military!
I recently heard from UPMC Hospice and they are in need of more veteran quilts and fidget quilts. If you are looking for a quick project to work on during the upcoming snowstorm please consider one of these projects for hospice patients. You will find all the details by clicking the Outreach Projects tab at the top of this page.
