Saturday Sew – February 2024

Please come and join us this Saturday, 17th February from 11:30am-5:30pm at South Jordan Library, 10673 S Redwood Rd, South Jordan, UT 84095.

It’s always more fun and supportive to sew with friends. We will be meeting to work on our own projects or maybe continue working on our minimalist pieces from the January workshop. Don’t worry if you don’t have any specific that needs attention (lol), you could help by sewing up some blocks for our charity quilts.

Bring your sewing machine, notions and projects (if you have any). We will provide an ironing station, cutting mats and rotary cutters. Come relax, build community and have fun 🙂

Notion of the Month Sign-ups

From Cami Munk

At our February meeting, we’ll have a sign-up sheet for our notion of the month moment. Choose your favorite notion, purchase one, and bring it to the meeting. You’ll have time to explain why you love it and then one lucky member chosen randomly will win your notion. And the entire guild will learn something new. I’ve purchased at least 10 notions that were shared at our meetings.

Note – the guild will reimburse you up to $20 for your notion purchase. Save your receipt and give it to our treasurer, Andrea Steenburgh.

Salt Lake MQG Retreat

November 14-17, 2024

Location:

The Quilter’s Lodge Retreat Center
12224 S 900 E
Draper, Utah 84020

Overview

The Annual 2024 Salt Lake MQG Retreat is on the calendar and registration is now open! We will be implementing a new tiered registration system this year in hopes to smoothly prioritize registering all overnight attendees. Please see the Members’ newsletter for registration dates, form and the special offer for early-bird registration!

We love gathering for this tradition before the holiday season is in full swing to spend some much needed time as a guild creating, relaxing, and making new friends! With on-site lodging, a full kitchen, a large sewing space, giant design walls, pressing stations, and cutting stations, they have everything all set up for us! Additionally, the adjoining fabric shop makes last-minute purchases a breeze AND they offer our members 10% off throughout the retreat!

This year, we will be adding a couple of games, an optional project instruction time, and will be hoping to complete a few charity quilts as a group in between our sewing/eating/sleeping/repeating!
