We're having a sew-in on Saturday, March 21 from 9:30 AM to 4 PM at the Baltimore County Public Library - Rosedale branch. It's right off of I-95 and the Baltimore beltway and there's plenty of easy parking. Come and enjoy the companionship of fellow quilters, get some advice, have uninterupted sewing time, and relax doing your favorite hobby. Bring your machine, sewing supplies, an extension cord or power strip, and any projects that you want to work on for National Quilt Day. Feel free to bring a drink and snacks.

Come for all or part of the day. See you then.

Name Tag Swap

Are you ready for a swap?

We are planning to have a name tag swap in April.  You will draw a name of another quilter and make a name tag for them to wear to meetings to help us learn everyone's names.  You will receive a name tag in return.  You can make the name tag in a fun shape.  You can use tiny scraps.  You can use a text print to spell out the name, embroider it, or use fabric markers.   We have some great examples in our guild.  You can have the name tag attach with a pin or a lanyard. Try to keep the nametags under five inches in any direction.

Sound fun?

There are some examples on Pinterest boards:

Quilted Name Tags

MQG Nametags

We will exchange names at the meeting on Sunday, March 7.  If you are unable to come to the meeting but are interested in being part of the swap, email me and I will fill out a slip for you and add it to the swap.  (I'll let you know your partner after the meeting).  

See you soon!
