September Sew Day

Leave a comment

On Sunday 16 September the Brisbane Modern Quilt Guild (BMQG) meet at The Hub, Mt Ommaney for its monthly meeting.  The doors open at 10am for members to come together and sew.  We sew all day until 5pm, so members come and go as they wish.  There is a formal chat from President Fee at 1pm and show and tell at 3pm. The guild currently has 47 members.

This month was exciting because half the membership got name tags, which look fantastic.

In October the BMQG has a stand at the Brisbane Craft and Quilt Fair. So to decorate our stand we had a sew machine mat challenge.  Members were very enthusiastic and we got about 14 sew machine mats.    The requirements for the sew machine mats were 12″ x 24″ and we had to use the Modern Quilt Guild colours.  We had one member who didn’t like those requirements and made a very modern sew machine mat which was round.

Our meetings always end with show and tell.  below are some pictures of our very talented members.
