Join us at the Library! at Cole & Ustick on December 28 for our after-Christmas party! We will provide the music and cider. You just need to bring:
- A treat to share (savory or sweet)
- The pin cushion you made for the exchange
- Items for show and tell, including sewn items you may have received over the holidays
- 2014 dues if you haven’t paid yet
Please note that this will not be a regular sew day and due to the food we advise you do not bring your sewing machine.
We will meet at the Library! at Cole & Ustick (7557 W Ustick Rd, Boise) at 1 p.m.
We spent the first part of our November Sew Day for our first-ever annual meeting. Now that we are an official non-profit, we are required to hold an annual meeting to take care of a few quick – but important – items of business: voting on the board of directors, submitting annual dues, and reviewing our financials.
The founding board members were elected to serve again in 2014: Christy Foltz-Ahlrichs, President; Angela Bowman, Vice President; Lindsie Bergevin, Secretary; Lori Wambolt, Treasurer.
The guild also voted on our new logo. Of the two that Lindsie Bergevin so graciously and expertly designed, the spring-colored theme won out. It’s awesome, don’t you think? Thanks, Lindsie!!!
Lindsie unveiled our new website, gave an overview of the content, and taught a little about photos and hashtags. Our official hashtag is #BoiseMQG.
Christine Brady of Hotdish Aprons occasionally brings in fabric scraps leftover from her apron-making. She brought several boxes this time, for all guild members to freely partake 🙂
The rest of the time was free-sewing and Show and Tell. Here are some featured projects by our talented members:
