Meeting Details for September 17

This is the week for the Des Moines Modern Quilt Group!! Our monthly meeting is this Thursday, September 17, 2015 at 6:30 p.m. at the Polk County Community Center, 134 6th Street, WDM (in Valley Junction) [click for map]. It is in the first block of 6th street, just north of Railroad Blvd and there is a good sized parking lot right next to the building. Please note that the Community Center is hosting a garage sale that day, so there may not be spots available in the parking lot. We should be fine to find on-street parking nearby, though. And maybe you'd like to come early and do some shopping, I heard someone brought fabric...

Scraps, Scraps, Scraps

Our planned activity will center around Scraps! Bring scrappy quilts to show, ideas for scrappy quilts and little projects to use up scraps. AND we will talk about ideas for storing & organizing your scraps. What do you use in your quilt studio to tame the scraps? Or do you just let them fly?! Please come ready to share your love of fabric scraps!

Also Bring Show and Tell, the bulk of our meeting is seeing what you have been making in the last month! Finished projects or in progress works bring whatever you have to show.

Refreshments: Melissa is bringing treats and drinks for this meeting. Thank you for your generosity, Melissa!

Also this week...Sewing Day!! 

Saturday, September 19,  9 a.m. - 10 p.m., Ankeny LDS Church, 721 E. 1st St, Ankeny, IA.  Why sew alone when you can sew with friends? Imagine what you could get done if you came to sew all day with your Modern Quilt Group of friends!  Pack up your current projects, sewing machine and supplies and join us. Invite your friends and neighbors too, participants need not be members of DSMMQG. We will have an abundance of space for you to spread out and work! Our hours are open, drop in when you can and stay as long as you want!

PLEASE RSVP if you would like to stay or come past 6 p.m...thank you!
