There’s big news for modern quilters this month- a chapter of the Modern Quilt Guild is being launched and their first meeting is at our shop on Tuesday, Oct 30th at 6:30pm. If you are interested in modern quilting and would like to be involved in the exciting launch of the Detroit Area Modern Quilt Guild (DAM Quilt Guild for short), we hope to see you there! No need to bring any sewing equipment- this first meeting will focus on getting organized, selecting officers, and making plans for future events. Please visit the DAMQG on facebook to stay updated.
Meanwhile, Guildcrafters has been preparing for the upcoming fall and holiday seasons. Our Christmas fabric continues to come in and we have several new projects, including an adorable Halloween table runner. Head on over to our Quilt Pictures n’ Kits section to see pictures of our new creations!
