Dear Quilters and LIMQG Members,
I hope you had an enjoyable summer filled with fun, family and friends. While there have been no LIMQG meetings over the summer I can assure you your board has had several meetings and have outlined and planned an exciting 2018-2019 quilting season.
All the board members are 100% dedicated to nurturing and expanding the group’s community outreach and charity involvement.
First up we have our first trunk show presentation for the members of Long island Quilting Society on October 15, 2018. I can tell you as a 2 year member of LIQS their membership is very excited for our show and talk about modern quilting. In fact, 3 members of LIQS are now members of LIMQG and see the benefit and similarities of our diverse quilting styles. Please make sure you submit a quilt for the show and if you have, please bring your quilt to the September meeting so it can be cataloged and added to the presentation in time. ALL work I have seen in our group qualifies as Modern Quilting and will be welcome with opened arms.
Many changes have been made to the Modern Quilt Guild website (www.themodernquiltguild.com) and as paid LIMQG member you have full access to its resources, education and inspiration.
As you know our “Comfort” quilt is on the QuiltCon website and I sent out an email last week—- sorry—-I could not wait until the September meeting I was so excited. (LOL)
Please remember we have an adjusted first meeting date of September 12th at the Dix Hills Arts League so as to not interfere with the Jewish holidays.
I look forward to seeing my quilting family and friends at our first meeting and unveiling our 2019 Charity Quilt for QuiltCon.
