Where do we go from here?
I have been thinking lately of where we started as a guild and where I would like to see us go. Our first meeting was at JoyQuilts, May 2014. We had maybe 10 people attending and only a few of us OG members are still here. We were trying to figure out what we wanted our meetings to be, what interactions we wanted to have, what activities to organize. I feel like we are still on that journey, getting better each month and year! We have 2 indoor camping retreats, UFO's, block lotto's, swaps, sew days, charity work, and most of all an inclusive space for all quilters. Modern may be in our name but that's not all we do. Our membership is over 20 members now and we are kind of in a great groove of what we do each month.
Things I am hoping to bring to the guild for the future are more workshops from our membership and outside instructors, a quilt show showcasing modern quilts, and more connections with other modern quilt guilds. I am looking forward to showcasing our membership this year and all we do as individuals in the quilting world and more. I hope you all are too. I am always asking what you want to see and do at our meetings so chime in and let me know if there is something else you want to try! See you next month March 2.
