A Change in Venue

We have been so lucky to be wholeheartedly supported by Gracie Lou's Quilt Shoppe over the past (nearly) two years! They have stood by us from the very beginning and we couldn't have made our guild work with out them! It is with a very heavy heart, that we have found ourselves in a position to need to find a new location for our guild to meet. We simply have out grown the space that Gracie Lou's has for us. Of course, we must continue to support their darling shop as much as we possibly can! We love you, Gracie Lou's!

Growing pains can be hard, but thankfully we have been offered another fantastic place to meet. The Corn Wagon Quilt Co., in Springville has graciously offered to host our guild meetings starting October 17th. To better fit in with their class schedules, we will be permanently changing our meeting day to the third Saturday of each month at 10 am. The Corn Wagon Quilt Co. address is 303 E 400 S, Springville, Utah.

We look forward to the fun times we will have there!

September Guild Meeting Recap

Hi Quilters!

We just wanted to quickly post the links for a few things from our meeting today :)

For Decembers MODERN Open Wide Zipper Pouch Swap- 
This is the link for Noodle Heads tutorial HERE and measurements HERE.  We are doing the medium size pouch (9" tall 12 " Wide)

Also, we are accepting payments starting now for your 2016 NMQG dues.  They are due by the December 12th meeting.  If you would like to pay via PayPal, you can click on the Paypal link on our blog in the side bar, or pay directly to our paypal email address nebomodernquiltguild@gmail.com.  We also accept cash or checks at the meetings :)  

Just FYI- the dues we collect go toward paying our national dues, they pay for prizes for guild challenges and toward fabric needed for charity quilts.  The majority of the fabrics and services for our charity quilts are donated by you AMAZING ladies!  THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!  We sometimes need to buy a backing or batting, or a neutral solid for completing these lovely quilts.  Please contact Emily Carr (emilylovesbaskets@msn.com) if you have batting or backing fabric to donate for our charity quilts.  We are specifically interested in purchasing a bolt of solid white, a bolt of solid (medium-light) grey and a bold of (not too dark) navy to use in our charity quilts over the next few years.  If you are so inclined, we are happy to accept cash donations to help purchase these.
