New meeting date! July 10

The Gainesville Modern Quilters meeting will be postponed one week because of the holiday. We will meet next Wednesday, July 10, from 7:00 to 9:00 in the Crafty Gemini Shop! That means you get an extra week to work on your low-volume plus blocks! I know that I need it—I’ve stalled out at 18 but I’m inspired by Lora and Laura’s progress–check them out on Instagram (@loradouglas and @appalachiensis). We’ll be talking about ideas for the QuiltCon charity quilt challenge (https://www.quiltcon.com/charity-quilt-challenge-2020) the theme is text and the color palette is black, white and gray. We can’t wait to hear your ideas!

Hope everyone has a Happy Fourth!

GMQ meeting Wed. June 5

Hi everyone!

Gainesville Modern Quilters meet this Wednesday, June 5, at the Crafty Gemini Shop (501F NW 23rd Ave, Gainesville, FL 32609)! We have lots of new members, so this month we are making scrappy name tags. We will have supplies on hand but bring your favorite scraps to make your name tag. Alaine will teach us some of her hand sewing magic. We will also talk about our next guild project. We are getting closer to our August swap of our low-volume plus blocks so keep working on those and of course we’ll have time for show and tell!

The meeting is from 7:00 to 9:00–hope to see you there!

GMQ meeting April 3

Hi everyone!

Gainesville Modern Quilters meets this Wednesday, April 3, from 7:00 to 9:00 in Vanessa’s new shop Crafty Gemini, 501F NW 23rd Avenue in Gainesville! The new location is just down the street from the Sewing Coop. We are having a party to celebrate the location so remember to bring something to share! We are also continuing work on our low-volume block swap so bring your new blocks–our goal is to have all our blocks made by the August meeting so we can commence swapping. And we always want to see what you’re working on so bring your show and tell.

Congratulations to Vanessa on this exciting new chapter in the Crafty Gemini story. We are so excited to see the space in person! See everyone Wednesday!

GMQ meeting March 6

Hi everyone,

GMQ will meet this Wednesday at 7:00 pm at the Sewing Coop. Please remember not to show up earlier than 6:55 so we can respect Vanessa’s work space.

Has everyone been working on their low-volume plus blocks? I’ve seen some great ones on Instagram so I’m excited to see what everyone has been working on. Bring whatever you have completed so far! We’ll also have recap from QuiltCon from attendees. We had at least five GMQ members in Nashville and five GMQ quilts in the show, including our amazing Charity Quilt!

As always, we’ll have show and tell. Hope to see you on Wednesday!
