Description

Second Saturday of the Month is Sew Day for the North East Modern Quilt Guild !


This is the perfect chance to put some time to one side just to sew (by hand or with machine) with plenty of chat and help with equipment and sewing tips, so join our friendly North East Modern Quilt Guild monthly meet up for some sewing and socialising.

As this is our 'Christmas' meet up, we'll bring the mince pies and music, you just bring yourself (Christmas accessoriers optional) and your sewing along. For those who would like to to take part in our Christmas/Winter themed Mug Rug swap we'll be exchanging those at some point in the day and if you missed out on hearing the rough guidance on that at our November meeting please email us. The swap is entirely optional, and certainly not the main theme of the day, but if you do want to be involved please let us know when you book up, so we know how many to expect. It will just be lovely to see as many of you as possible for our last meet up of 2019!

There are no particular plans for what we sew, so bring along what you are working on and anything you've finished as we love to see what everyone else is making to inspire us!

We do have some basic sewing equipment and a machine available for use by anyone in the group, just in case you can't bring everything you need, but where possible please bring your own sewing machine and whatever else you need to work with. We also have tea and coffee facilties available, but we would recomment bringing a travel mug if you can to keep spill accidents to a minimum!

As usual bookings for this event are via Eventbrite only so we know who to expect, but if you have any problems accessing this or questions about the event please get in touch with us by emailing northeastmqg@gmail.com

Meeting fees are £2.50 for NE Modern Quilt Guild members and £5.00 for non members, payable in cash on the day. If it's your first time, you can come along for free, and it's optional whether you join as a member going forwards.

Check out our Facebook page (link below) and Instagram page (@NorthEastMQG) for pictures.of past events.

There are free parking spaces opposite and just around the corner from the Shipley Art Gallery, but if you need to drop any equipment off before you park, there is a couple of short stay spaces directly in front of the Gallery. If you need any help with carrying your bags, please let us know and we'll be happy to help!

The North East Modern Quilt Guild started up in May 2015 and welcomes new people as we look forward to continue to grow our community group even more this year at our pop up home in the Creator Space of the Shipley Art Gallery.
