May Recap

I think the SDMQG had the best idea to beat the "May Gray" here in San Diego.... lots of sewing. We started out the month with another sew-in at Quilter's Paradise in Escondido. We even doubled our turnout from the first sew-in. At that rate, we will have a packed house in June! We all met a few new friends and got a lot done. (pictures thanks to Sandi).

Here is Angela with her ADORABLE little sewing machine and crazy scrap pile.
This is me and Jenifer, working hard or hardly working?
Susan with her fabulous sewing machine. Look at all that quilt in there!
And finally this is Shanley working on her 47 bazillionth quilt this year :)

Our next get-together was a dinner meeting at Cozymels in UTC. We ate good food, showed off our fabulous projects, and even happened to be sitting by a fellow quilter at the very next table. (picture thanks to Tiffany)

So don't worry if you missed any of the May fun, because our next sew-in is June 19th from 11-3 at Quilter's Paradise. We hope to see you there!

Flyers and Beverly's Fabrics

Here's a quick snap of some of the fabrics at our local Beverly's. They aren't all fabric but they do have bright prints, flannels and bits of some of the popular lines.

Any graphic artist-y types out there? I was in Beverly's this weekend and asked about their guild support. While they don't have a place to post flyers publicly, they are happy to post in the staff room and let people know of our little group.

Also they offer a 10% discount to guild members without requiring a card but it might be good for us to come up with some for other shops. Sign up for their monthly flyer, it almost always has a coupon for 25% off.

Wonky Star Donation Blocks  - I'd like to offer a $10 gift card to Beverly's for anyone who makes a wonky star block for our first donation quilt (details here).  Each block you turn in will get you one chance to win.  I'll announce the winner at the July sewing day.

Now back to the solids I picked up yesterday!

May 19th Meet, Chat and Share

Kerstin had a great idea since we're not meeting to sew again for quite awhile - "Hi everyone, we talked about an additional meeting today at the sew in just to socialize and talk about our favorite topic! So how about a meeting on Thursday, May 19th at Cozymels in UTC? It's right next to the UTC mall and easily accessible from the 5 and 805. This place is pretty big, but also relatively empty on a weeknight. Please let me knowif this day works for everyone and who's planning to come, so I can make a reservation. Thanks!"

Probably around 6:30 or 7 pm.  There may be additional information on our Flickr group.

Feel free to bring blocks for our donation quilt!
