Modern Quilt Guilds are springing up all over the place. Last Monday I went to the first meeting of the GWSMQG, to check out whether this might be a group for me.
I'm not a natural joiner of groups. I prefer to do most of my sewing alone because it allows me to focus on what I am doing. I just make stuff and enjoy the process. I don't need external validation of what I do.
However, getting out and chatting with other quilters can often be fun so, after confirming that a couple of friends would be there, I set off to the meeting.
It was a great night! It was fun to be in a room with so much positive energy. There were 22 quilters there - some with lots of quilt making experience and some with little, but it didn't matter. A good time was had by all.
