MONTHLY MEETINGS

Our monthly meetings are held the fourth Thursday of the month at 7pm in the Half Price Books Community Room. Half Price Books is located on Northwest Highway/Loop 12 one block east of Central Expressway. Each meeting focuses on a new topic with a different swap, presentation, demonstration, or challenge.

In November and December, we will meet earlier in the month at an alternate locations so as not to conflict with the holidays. You can find out program information and upcoming meeting dates on our Facebook page and on our blog.

SATURDAY AND SUNDAY SEWS

What could be more fun than quilting with friends? We have cutting and ironing stations as well as large work spaces ready for you! Just bring your project and machine! Saturday Sew and Sunday Sew dates are posted on Meetup, our Facebook page and on our blog.

HANDWORK TUESDAYS

New for 2013 are Handwork Tuesdays!  The perfect time to work on all you put aside hand-sewing such as hexies, embroidery, binding and anything else you can think of that does not require a sewing machine.  This super fun social time takes place on the second Tuesday of the month at the location listed on our Meetup page.

 

CHARITABLE PROJECTS INITIATIVE

The hospice program at Presbyterian Plano is our charity of choice. In addition to finished lap-size quilts and quilt tops, we also accept donations of: batting, fabric, backings, and quilting services. Please contact our Community Service Chair, Laurie Thompson for more information.

BI-ANNUAL RETREAT

Each May and November, our members enjoy a little piece of heaven when they attend our bi-annual retreats! They are the perfect time to build camaraderie, learn from each other, and strengthen our friendships! Quilting + friendship = too much fun!!!!

Retreats are a perfect time to finish those UFOs [unfinished objects], special projects, and community service lap quilts. Spaces are limited and fill up quickly. DMQG members receive priority reservations. For more information on our retreats, please contact our Event Chairperson, Rachel Bryan.
