Long Arm Field Trip

We are really excited that there is a store in Tucson that is renting time on long arm machines!  Just imagine the possibilities! 🙂  A field trip has been scheduled so that we can learn more about the class you'll need to take, what to expect, etc.  Come join us!

Where: AZ Vac & Sew 3949 E. 29th Suite 701 (Their website is here)

When: Saturday, March 30th at 10am Meet about 9:45 out front

There is no need to RSVP, but if you can, plan on grabbing lunch afterwards! PS. Please also note that I've added a calendar to the meeting page.  The monthly meeting has been added for the rest of the year. If there are other quilt related events (local or not), please let me know so I can add them!

New Directions

Okay! So one change for 2013 is to have an additional meeting once a quarter to make sure that the guild is heading in the right direction. (Yes, the blog title is a Glee reference, which admittedly has nothing to do with the Tucson Modern Quilt Guild, but seams a better title than Vocal Adrenaline.) This will be the perfect time to weigh in on changes that have been made or should be made, brainstorm and share ideas, make suggestions, etc.  Think it'd be awesome to bring in a guest speaker about paper piecing?  Come tell us!  You're not committing to anything crazy, I promise!  We need your input to do our best to help you learn and connect with other quilters.  🙂  We'll also use this time to address any more technical business aspects.  Everyone is welcomed - this is not a closed meeting. Come this Thursday, February 7th to Paradise Bakery at Oracle and Wetmore at 6:30.  And bring your ideas with you!

January Meeting

WHAT? It's already the second Thursday of the month!  How is 2013 already flying by? YES! we are having a meeting.  And a very exciting one at that.  We have a fabulous plan for the new year and we are kicking it off with a guest from Project Linus.  Come hear about this amazing organization and how they help the Tucson communities (and communities all over.) They are going to be our charity this year.  And to encourage members to make and donate quilts (and blankets too), for each item donated at a meeting your name will be entered into a drawing for a gift certificate....for FABRIC!  🙂  Bring 10 items, your name is in 10 times!  And the person who donates the most throughout the year will get a fabulous grand prize! We also have sewing days planned and guest speakers plus a really fun field trip in the works.  So you won't want to miss out!  See you the 10th at the Quilt Basket.  Come at 6:00 to shop (and use your 10% discount) and the meeting starts at 6:30.  See you there!

December Meeting

Last week there was a group of us that met to plan out 2013! (Anyone who wanted to come was welcome.)  And I have to tell you that I'm really excited about the coming year!  The speakers, the raffles, the charity and more!  It's going to be a great year! We have a meeting tonight.  Bring a little food to share (if you wish) and a little gift to exchange (wrapped).  It's all optional - so please come even if you have nothing prepared!  We look forward to seeing you! Where:  Quilt Basket/Sewing Room – 6538 E. Tanque Verde #130 When: Thursday, December 13th.  6:30pm

November Meeting

YES! We are having our meeting tonight!  We will talk about many things - including the quilts we've made for the Cancer Center as well as opportunities to help hurricane Sandy victims.  I hope you can make it!  And please, if you're a member of our guild, find our interactive facebook group (we have a page too) and request to join!  It's a great way to share information and ideas quickly and easily throughout the month. See you tonight! Quilt Basket: 6:30pm

Swoon top all put together

October Meeting

Our meeting is this week! We are so lucky that Cristy is located near enough to us and she was willing to come speak!  I have already used her board method to baste a quilt since the last meeting.  I'm so excited to be up off of the floor.  She is also generously offering our guild 15% off.  Simply use the code INSPIRING on her website If you don't have the glue tips yet, I highly recommend those.  🙂 See you Thursday!
