July Sewcial!

Just a reminder that due to the July 4th holiday, we will not have our regular monthly meeting at AccuQuilt on Tuesday, July 3. Instead, we will have an informal sewcial at the Milton R. Abrahams Library Branch at 5111 N. 90th Street (on the southeast corner of 90th & Fort).

Bring your sewing machine, sewing supplies and a project to work on. Don't forget your show & tell. (We love to see what everyone has been working on!) If you'd like, you can bring a snack to share. Join us for the entire time or just part of the evening. All are welcome!

Lincoln & Omaha MQG Mini Swap

Don't forget to sign up for the mini quilt swap between sister Modern Quilt Guilds of Lincoln and Omaha! After the sign up deadline of April 30, 2018, you will be assigned a partner from the sister guild and sent your swap partner's email to share ideas and preferences. Your completed mini quilt needs to be finished and delivered by July 14, 2018. The swap is limited to dues-paying guild members, but everyone is welcome to come sew at the Ashland Public Library (1324 Silver Street in Ashland, NE) on Saturdy, July 14 from 10am-4pm. (If you're coming to the Sew Day, please RSVP so we know we have enough room for everyone.)  Bring your sewing machine and sew the day away! Bring a brown bag lunch or eat in Ashland on your own. Around 2pm, swappers will enjoy an ice cream sundae bar for a sweet afternoon treat while we enjoy the exchange. The link with all the details and the sign-up form can be found here! We hope to see you there!
