June meeting in review

First, a BIG "Thank You"  to everyone that came out to the meeting Tuesday night!

Mary gave a demonstration on using the online Spoonflower company to help you design your own fabrics.    If you would like more information on Spoonflower please check out their website HERE.   If you sign up for their free newsletter you will get more information sent to you as well as some helpful tips on how to use their site. One of the questions that was asked at the meeting was whether or not the designer earns a commission if others choose their fabrics and the answer is YES!!    Suzanne made a couple of test samples of our guild logo to show plus samples of Spoonflower blank fabrics.  

Show and Share  (lots more pics on our FB page June pics)
The leadership team revealed the finished Guild Banner.

The Summer is looking good for lots of quilty goodness.  The county fair will be here shortly and we want to remind you that the LMQG will be sponsoring a prize for a modern quilt. Please think about entering something you have made into the county fair.  The Lancaster website to enter your quilt can be found HERE  Note*** the quilts are only up near the end of the fair from Aug 3rd evening until the last day of the fair.
Also this year, a new contest for a Barn Quilt design by the  local 4-H and FFA groups will be fun to see. Read more about it HERE

So Much Fun Tours still has a few seats available for the Hamilton Missouri bus trip on July 11th to see the Missouri Star Quilt Company.  Sign up today HERE
