What's Up Wednesday: Guild Day

Today was our December Orlando Modern Quilt Guild meeting.  Always a fun time.  Our membership has grown so much since 2010, and our meeting space is pretty much packed!    We are so fortunate to have The Sewing Studio host our meetings.

Today was a special treat as Juki educator Karen was demonstrating the Juki longarm machine.  She even brought goodies for all of us!  After the meeting, members had an opportunity to use the machine.  I must admit this was the first time I had ever touched a longarm quilting machine.  I must say I liked it!

Do any of you have a Periscope account?  The Orlando MQG does and is now broadcasting portions of their events.  Check it out!  After 24 hours, the broadcasts are stored on their page.  If you go to this link, you will find the quilts that I shared today for Show and Tell.

The guild is in a friendly "race" with a nearby quilt group to see who can make the most pillowcases for our local National Guard troops about to be deployed.  I am pretty sure we are well on our way to winning the Pillowcase Challenge of 2015!

Our group also receives 15% off purchases on meeting days.   Gabriela was sweet to let me take her picture while she was working the register.

As you can see, I exercised restraint in my purchases.  I had to take advantage of The Sewing Studio's 33% off precuts sale though.  I may have purchased more of the fabric lollipops than is shown here...they make cute "happies" for quilty friends  ;-))

Do you belong to a local quilt guild?  I hope you so.  It's nice to find "your tribe"!
Thanks for stopping by,
