Just a reminder, if you haven't signed up for the Betz White workshop and would like to, please contact Jessie at firstname.lastname@example.org. If we do not fill up the workshop with DCMQG members, we'll be throwing it open to other guilds.

Today, we're visiting one of our newer members, Liz, at her blog Beadqueene's Bits and Baubles. Some of us got to see this as a work in progress when Liz was working on this quilt during our annual charity sewing day last Saturday. If you want to read more about that, and see some great photos of our works in progress, please go visit Frederick's post about it here.
Also, if you missed a few stops along our blog hop, here are the previous posts:

IMPORTANT: Unfortunately, unlike our other library meeting places, there does not seem to be a lot in walking distance for lunch options. So you may want to plan to bring a lunch or hop in the car and drive a few miles down the road.
Please let me know (email@example.com) if you have any questions, and look forward to seeing you on Saturday.

Here's some inspiration from SuZQuilts:
From Nicole at Finch Sewing Studio:
We are having a sale on all our summer weight yarn- cotton, linen, tee shirt yarn, and sari yarn. We also have sip and sew on the 15th at Shoes in downtown Leesburg. Also starting in September, we will be open until 9pm on Tuesdays. Please come sit and knit or stitch with us! New fabric is plentiful! We have the new Gramercy line by Art Gallery Quilts, Far Far Away, all the batiks from Alison Glass, and much more!
And our friends up north, Patches:
This month Jackie is attending a Viking conference, where the company will be unveiling their newest additions to their sewing machine lineup. She'll be back with new machines and some special deals for any of you who are dreaming of a new machine!
We still have a few spots left on our Quilter's Quest bus tour, Friday & Saturday, November 7th and 8th. This bus will take you on a tour of ten Maryland and Northern Virginia quilt shops. The cost for both days is $150, or $95 for one day. Lunch, games, and prizes are included!
Thanks to our business members for their support of the DC Modern Quilt Guild! Please keep these lovely local businesses in mind whenever you are in the market for quilty satisfaction!
