We love our August meeting for all it’s bustling activities. Don’t miss it.
First, we hold our annual elections and you're needed to participate. In July we presented you the slate of new board members, In August we need a quorum to vote them in. A quorum constitutes 1/3 of our membership or 54ish members.
Second, your 2017 Challenge Quilts Touch of Red are due and be displayed. They will then have a special exhibit at the Monterey County Fair August 31-September 4, 2017. A later exhibit is planned at the 2018 MPQG Quilt Show held in April.
Third, the very generous Gail Abeloe, owner of Back Porch Fabrics, will celebrate 21 store business years with 21 treats which will be raffled and the proceeds from raffle ticket sales will be donated to MPQG.
Last, Tips, Tricks & Techniques aka Mini Workshops: Five guild members will share short (10-minute) demonstrations of “quick” ideas on a variety of subjects.
July Update: So many of us are looking forward to the August 5 & 6 Bowl Art workshop with Hilde Morin. If you haven't seen the incredible bowls displayed at the last two guild meetings, contact me and I'll send you photos. Because of the great response, Hilde has agreed to accept two additional participants so let me hear from you ASAP if you want to attend.
Create a three dimensional art piece in the shape of a bowl. Starting with heavy duck canvas, you will shape a bowl and then decorate with your own design and embellishments. Size of finished bowl is approximately 16" diameter.
All workshops are held from 10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m., at the Sally Griffin Center, 700 Jewel Ave, Pacific Grove. Doors open at 9:30 a.m. for set-up.
