It's time to plan our SEW-cial event to celebrate Orlando Modern Quilt Guild's one -year anniversary!
The event will be held on Monday night, March 21 from 6:30 - 8:30 pm at the Dr.Phillips/Southwest branch of the Orange County Library System. (it will be in the same room that we have our Sew Days) The goal of this event is to celebrate and socialize, introduce ourselves to the community and prospective members, and to hopefully welcome that evening any new members who may want to join our group!
The planning committee is coordinating flyers to promote the event, a notice in the Southwest Bulletin ( local comm. newspr.) room setup and refreshments, table-top displays highlighting our first year including our charity quilts as well as an informational brochure to be given out to prospective members that evening.
What we need from YOU, our members is the following:
1. Your attendance! Please rsvp now and commit to being there to help us celebrate!
2. Let us know what quilt(s) or other quilted items you'd like to bring for our displays...we will have some wall space to hang quilts as well as table top areas. When trying to decide what to bring for display - remember to keep it MODERN! Please include your Kauffman solids challenge piece - we'd like to have a special area just for those pieces.
(we will also have a small demo area going on, that Beth will coordinate, but we really want to have lots of completed work to show, as we all know - seeing is believing!)
3. We plan on having a resource table showcasing our favorite publications and periodicals, if you've got a favorite book or resource to share that evening, please let us know and bring it along!
4. If you live near or frequent a a particular local quilt shop (LQS), let us know and we'll get some SEW-cial promotional flyers to you, that you can ask the shop to display.
*we are purchasing light refreshments for this event, so thanks in advance but we do NOT need you to bring any snacks, etc.
We are hoping for a great turnout from our OMQG members as well as interested newcomers. Please share this info with your friends and family and tell them to "save the date"!
