Take a break and come sew with us in Caro's fabulous studio. She has room for machines or bring your latest (eternal?) handwork.  Address is available on the MQG forum or email me at alice@alidiza.com.


April BMQG Meeting
Saturday, April 12th,  1-3pm
Fabric Place Basement, Cloverleaf Center - 321 Speen Street, Natick

Get ready for the ruler-rama!!!  At our April meeting several awesome BostonMQG members will be demonstrating how to use some of the latest specialty rulers and giving you the low down on whether they're really worth the price tag.

Don't forget to bring your latest finish, WiP or anything else you'd like to share.  We LOVE to see what you've been up to:-)  Also, please bring your finished Quilts for Boston quilts.  We are wrapping up this project and can't wait to send all of these fabulous quilts delivered to their new homes!

 Snacks and guests are welcome.


February Sew-in
Thursday, February 27th,  7pm
Alice's House, Acton

I've been rather remiss in scheduling Sew-ins.  It's been way too long so I'll kick things off again by hosting a get together at my home in Acton.  We can use the basement so sewing machines are welcome.  Address is available on the MQG forum or email me at alice@alidiza.com if you need the address.


February BMQG Meeting
Friday, February 7th,  7-9pm
Gather Here, 370 Broadway, Cambridge

For our February meeting please join us as we celebrate the release of fabulous founding member Rachel May's new book Quilting With A Modern Slant.  Rachel's book profiles more than 80 quilters, many of them members of the BMQG.  While the book shares their tips, tutorials, and techniques to inspire your creativity much of the focus is on the quilting community so this is a great chance to revel in our community.

 There will be snacks, giveaways, and shopping.  Guests are welcome.  Please also bring your Riley Blake Challenge quilts to share.



January BMQG Meeting
Saturday, January 25th,  1-3pm
LDS Church, 70 Concord Road, Billerica

The incredible Erin Daley of Daley by the Yard will be entertaining us with "How to Keep Your Machine OUT of the Shop!"

Of course there's also the always inspiring Show and Tell so bring those fabulous finishes and WiPs to share.  Snacks are welcome.

After the meeting will will have additional free sewing time so feel free to bring your machine and latest project.  For those of you who haven't been to this location, they have a wonderful floor for basting so you are welcome to bring along those large quilts and take advantage of the space (and possibly volunteer labor:-).
