Plans are in place for two more Community Outreach projects, as well as group Sew-Ins and instructional programs. Things are looking up for the JSMQG.

What a whirlwind the last few months of 2021 have been for the Jersey Shore MQG, we have seen our membership nearly double and counting and we’ve been gifted a new, fabulous meeting space by Julia of Old Spool Sewing Studio in Brielle NJ. As a token of our appreciation, we secretly sewed some mini quilts and presented them to Julia at the meeting. Each one is so unique! Stop by the studio and you can see them for yourself adorning the walls at Old Spool.

Deb H gave us some kits last month to make holiday/seasonal placemats as a community Outreach project, using up some donated fabric. I collected 32 placemats at the meeting!! More on that after the donation is made.

We also celebrated the season together with yummy treats as we watched the parade of Show and Tell projects.
