– A Trunk Show:
In addition to eating and socializing, Amy Struckmeyer will be doing a trunk show and book signing for her newly released book, A Bit of Appliqué: Easy Projects with Modern FlairBooks will be available for sale at the meeting for $22. (List price is $26.99.)

– Ann Arbor Swap:
We’ll also show off the mini quilts for our swap with the Ann Arbor Modern Quilt Guild, and get them ready to send off to Ann Arbor.  If you signed up to make a quilt, please bring it to the meeting with a note for its recipient pinned to the back of the quilt.  If you can’t make the meeting, please make arrangements to send it with another member.  More info and a reminder to follow soon!

Finally, we’d love to have help with set-up and clean-up for the potluck.  If you can help with either, please leave a comment on the Modern Quilt Guild forums post letting us know!  And thanks!
