Join us for our end of year celebration this Tuesday Dec 11th at 6PM at UFab on Broad Street!!! Prizes, games, gift exchange, and bring some snacks to share! Also bring any show and tell that you’ve made lately! There will be wine…
Reminder that our meeting is this Tuesday at Studio Two Three at 6PM! Looking forward to seeing everyone there! Margaret will be teaching us how to save our bleeding quilts.
Please bring your Mid Atlantic info forms with you if you’d like to participate in the show. For all of those who enter, your name will be placed in a drawing to win a free CVAMQG membership for next year!
See everyone this Tuesday at 6PM at Studio Two Three for our monthly meeting! Phyllis will be presenting on the in’s and out’s of what happens at Quilt Market! Should be a fun time!
Our September meeting will be held at The Longarm Network at 2085 Val Park Dr, Oilville, VA 23129 and we will start our meeting at 6:30PM. They will be giving us a demo for how longarm machines work and there should be a little time left for us to play on the machines!!
Also, the deadline for submitting silent auction mini quilts is this meeting. We need to be able to catalog everything so every quilt should have a label with the makers name, name of the quilt, and two pieces of the soft side of Velcro attached to the back.
We have made a last minute change to our July meeting location. Instead of Studio Two Three, we will be meeting at U-Fab on Tuesday July 10th from 6PM to 8PM. The address is 7921 West Broad Street, Richmond Virginia 23294. Hope to see everyone there!
