On the Blog: June Meeting Recap!

Our June meeting was a Sew-In. We met at Magical Minds Studio which is an art studio for children located in Oak Park, IL. It was a great space to gather, sew, and chat. Members worked on our charity project for Sarah’s Inn  or their own personal projects.

Here are some photos from our sew-in - a good time was had by all!

We then ended the meeting with some Show and Tell.  Refer to our guilds Instagram account (@chicagomqg or click on the “On Instagram” picture in the right side bar) to see some amazing quilts made by our members and more photos from our sew-in.

  1. JUST an FYI, we are hoping to have a guest speaker at our November meeting, so Donna will be doing her presentation at the October meeting. Bit of a change that.
