June Meeting Recap

January 19, 2022

Our June 2021 meeting was really exciting for our guild. We met in-person for the first time since February 2020 for an outdoor Sew-In + Social + Swap! And, although it was classified as a sew-in, we’re not sure anyone did much actual sewing because we were all so busy catching up.

We had a huge swap table, with scraps, yardage, patterns, books, painter’s canvas, coloring books, and so much more. There was a collection box for fabric which was later donated to the Social Justice Sewing Academy. We had announcements and then an amazing ‘show-and-tell.’ It was fantastic to see so many beautiful and creative quilts live and in person. You can see just a handful of those delightful works below.
