A Community Service Event

Heads up everyone! The January 27, 2021 meeting will be Bolt to Bed! For those new to MVQG, Bolt to Bed is a day set aside for making comfort quilts. It is a won- derfully fun event. We start at 9:30am and go until we stop! Usually around 8:00pm.

Bring your sewing machines and quilting supplies. Irons and ironing boards will be provided but you can bring your own if you prefer. We have many Quilt Kits avail- able for you to choose from or you can bring your own pattern/design and fabrics if you prefer. The Guild also has a stash of fabric and patterns you can choose from if you would like to make your own kit. Fidget Quilt supplies will be available, if you wish to make a fidget quilt.

If you do not wish to bring your machine, there will be plenty of things to do. If you have a charity quilt that needs to have the binding hand sewn, bring it and work on that. You can also press for others, cut fabric, hand sew other people’s binding and/or hand sew on quilt labels. Bolt to Bed is a wonderful time to get to know other Guild members better. Please come and have a fun day with your quilting friends.
