Our first meeting will be a Monday Meetup. As described in our intro post, Monday Meetups are your chance to come and chat about all things Modern Quilting. You get to connect with other quilters in the community, as well as having an opportunity to ‘Show and Tell’ some of your current projects. As this is our first meeting, it’s also an opportunity to provide input about what you’d like to get out of the Greater Western Sydney Modern Quilt Guild.
For the first meetup, we’ve booked a private space in The Boardroom at Dooley’s Waterview in Silverwater. This venue will allow us a quiet space to discuss ideas and get the group rolling.
Monday 20th August, 2012, 7:00pm to 9:00pm
The Board Room at Waterview Dooley’s
Silverwater at the cnr Clyde Street and Silverwater Road, Silverwater
GWS MQG – Meeting Cost $10*
Dinner, snacks and drinks are available at Dooley’s
Waterview Dooley’s is a social club adjacent to parklands on the Parramatta River. Access is free for those who live outside a 5km radius of the venue. If you are within the 5km range, then membership is required but is a low $5.50/year. With membership, you are entitled to a 20% discount on food and beverages. We plan to meet there regularly, so it may be worthwhile to join, if you plan on attending more than one meeting. Dooley’s serves a wide range of club food. You’re welcome to sit down and enjoy a dinner out with us while we meet!
To help us estimate numbers and ensure we have capacity for everyone, we invite you to join our Facebook group and please RSVP at Facebook Event Page. If you don’t Facebook, then please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP.
Waterview Dooley’s is located in Silverwater at the cnr of Clyde St and Silverwater Road. We know many of you are coming from various parts of the city. We invite you to use the Facebook Group as a way of arranging carpools and ride shares.
What to Bring
Monday meetings are all about the social side of Modern Quilting. Please bring along Show and Tell which may be an ongoing or recently completed project. It doesn’t matter what level of quilter you are, we’d love to see your projects! For this meeting, the monthly theme is craft books, so please bring along one of your favourites to show off to the group. You are, of course, welcome to bring along anything else that you are excited about that would appeal to the Modern Quilting Group.
*The Greater Western Sydney Modern Quilt Guild is currently pursuing not-for-profit status. All dues collected will be used to fund the running costs of the group including venue hire. Final due structure will be announced once our Sunday Sewalong venue is confirmed and we have a better estimation of group numbers.
