Mini Retreat and Movie Night

Hello guild members,

We are having a mini retreat this Saturday, September 10th. It will start at 5:30 p.m. and end at midnight. We will have plenty of space and tables and chairs for you to set up your sewing machine and work on the project of your choice. Bring some food and/or drink to share with the group, sew, cut fabric for a new project, bind a quilt, and just hang out with other quilters.

We will also be using an available theater space to watch Stitched, a documentary following three quilters racing to complete their entries for the International Quilt Festival. We will start the film at 7 p.m. with a possible second showing later in the evening.

There have been several requests for donated quilts to help the victims of the Texas wildfires, and donated fabric will be available at the retreat so that we can start quilts for Project Linus and the Central Texas Wildfire Quilt Drive. You are welcome to come and help with the donation quilts if you don't have an existing work in progress.

It should be a fun night, check our AMQG Facebook page for the event post and rsvp if you would like to join us!
