Catching Up...

It's been a while (far too long, in fact...) since we posted any pictures from our meetings.  This is because it seems that I (Sheila) haven't downloaded pictures from my camera since the end of September.  That's right, September.  Yikes!

I thought that it would be good to share what we were up to this past fall before we got started with our 2013 meetings, so here is a selection of pictures from our September, October and November meetings. And check out our Flickr group to see lots more. :)

Upcoming Monthly Meeting - January 2013


Hey all! It's time again for our monthly meeting! This time around I will be teaching a short-but-sweet English Paper Piecing workshop. We will cover basic techniques with some basic shapes. I will supply the templates needed as well as some scrap fabric, but please bring along a hand-sewing needle, thread (can be cheap and ugly), scissors, and your own fabric if you want something specific. I will also bring in a couple of examples of what can be done with your completed pieces. After the meeting I will put a blog post with some resources and references.

As always, please bring along your finished projects and/or problems to share with the group.

The meeting this month also marks the third anniversary of the Toronto Modern Quilt Guild! I will be bringing a treat (an edible treat that it!) to share with everyone and any member who wants to do the same is welcome! I will also be bringing along a surprise giveaway so be there or be square!
