All Georgia QB members, and those who live in surrounding states:
in Sept there is the E cobb quilt show on 9/16, 9/17 and 9/18
In Oct there is the commercial Georgia Quilt show, Oct 20, 21 and 22
In Nov we were thinking about a get together on the south side of Atlanta at A Scarlet Thread, a very nice and HUGE quilt shop for those who haven't been there.
In order to make these meet ups happen, we're thinking that a poll of those who are interested will give us the best time to schedule a meet-up at the two events and then to schedule the Nov one. We can do the same thing in Nov we did in May, which was a pot luck lunch, some show & tell, some market info from Sarah Philips, the shop owner of Intown Quilters (in Nov we wouldn't be getting this presentation but maybe the shop owner would do something else) , some shopping, a lot of getting to know each other and some help from other QB members on things.
If we want a more formal presentation, we might try to get one from a QB member, the topics of interest seemed to be OBW's (and a gorgeous one was there, but I know I'd like some help in choosing the best fabric of the couple I've picked up and then lining up the first one before I cut into all that fabric!), some paper piecing interest was expressed...what all are you interested in seeing? Twister? A sit n sew? It'll be our meeting so let's decide what we want and make it happen!!
Any and all ideas are welcome as is help in organizing and coordinating I hope to be able to schedule something so that all who were there AND those who couldn't make it but wanted to will be able to attend!
Please keep the messages public as I'm not the only one working on this and it'll be easier for us, thanks!
