MMQG November 2016 Meeting - Recap

Our meeting last night was pretty awesome!  It is our third birthday as a modern guild.  So many good memories, so many awesome quilts and quilty things were made over the past three years.  
 HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MMQG! Here's to many more years of quilty companionship and creative inspiration!  

Because our lovely Prez, Adrienne, couldn't attend,(we missed you!) our lovely Secretary, Jeanette, lead us through our meeting.  Thanks for a job well done!  And more thanks to Sandra for supervising our swap for the evening.  

MMQG 2016 CHARITY PROJECT - At this meeting, we presented Kylene Mellor, representative from The IWK Health Centre, which is a hospital in Halifax, Nova Scotia that provides care to women, children, and youth from Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island, with 21 quilts made by various members of our guild. We know these quilts will give a quilty hug to many.  Thank you to all who participated.  We are very proud of our members for their generosity.   



After our presentation, we went on to our program for the evening.  Our members, Gail and Frances, former pysiotherapists, shared with us lots of valuable information regarding how we as quilters need to take care of our backs, and necks, and shoulders.  We learned that "sitting is the new smoking" and very detrimental to our health.  We need to move around and be mindful of our posture.  Thanks, Ladies!  A great learning experience.  


We also had time for a fun game of LCR (left, centre, right).  A dice game and the ante is two fat quarters.  Someone goes home with a nice stash!  


Show and Share is up next!  

















Again, what a fabulous meeting. If you have any questions about any of the photos, please ask. So much talent and inspiration and we love to share.   
 Our next meeting, Dec. 8, will be our Christmas Potluck Party, to be held at Beth's.  Get in touch if you need more info.  Our swap will be a handmade ornament.
