Meetings coming up Sept 28th and Oct 19th!

Hi Everyone,

First let me remind you all of this Saturday's meeting at the Arlington Central Library.  This is our annual charity sewing day which you can read all about here.
FQ stack of Ikebana donated by dear Stella will be one of the door prizes!
You are welcome to work on the group projects provided or your own project, charity or otherwise, or of course some combination thereof.  I know it's way too hard for me to decide on just one thing!  If you are signed up for the MQG forums, you can click "attend" on the event to let others know you are coming! 
10:00 - 4:00
Arlington Central Library
1015 N Quincy St
Arlington, VA 22201

Our next meeting on October 19th will feature a talk from our own ex-pres Katie Blakesley!  Katie has a book coming out this December and has graciously agreed to speak to us about the ins and outs of book publishing.  Yay!
The meeting is from 10:30-4:30 at the Rose Hill Library (new location).  Katie will speak from 11-12, after which we will hold the block raffle and then free sewing!  This library doesn't have any many restaurants nearby, so plan on bringing some substantial snacks to this one. ETA: Katie let me know that there is in fact a McDonald's, a Little Caesar's, and a grocery store around the block from the library as well as some more popular options within 10 min driving distance.  So we have options!  

10:30-4:30
John Marshall Library (Rose Hill)

  3. I just moved to the D.C. area from Chicago and was wondering whether I could convert my Crystal Lake Modern Quilt Guild membership to a D.C. membership. I would love to join you on Oct 19th!

    1. Hi Tiffany!
      As per the MQG's rules, we can't convert your membership from another guild, but you are more than welcome to attend two of our meetings before committing to join the DC guild. We would love to meet you on Oct 19th!

  4. Yay! Rose Hill is super close to my house AND I think I can finally make it to a meeting! FYI-There's a new Indian/Nepalese restaurant that opened up across from the library...they do take out and they are really tasty.
