Mark Your Calendars

It's that time.... The New Year brings new adventures to Bakersfield. The most anticipated wait is almost over. Our first meetings have been scheduled and we have all been planning some wonderful things for you in 2011.

The Bakersfield Chapter of the Modern quilt guild will be holding a Meet and Greet January 22nd from 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm at the Strawberry Patches Fabric Shoppe. Please visit the sidebar add for the address if you are not familiar with the shop, or you can email me directly at for directions and information.

The Plan::

This meeting is to get to know everyone who is interested in modern quilting. Weather your a seasoned quilter or new to quilting. We have some great samples of fabrics provided by sponsors to share with everyone as well as some sharing of quilts. Please feel free to invite your family and friends to the meet and greet. This is a FREE meeting for everyone and will be loaded with modern inspiration.

We would also like to ask that you bring in quilts or projects that you are working on whether they are finished or not, traditional or modern, to share with the group. Small refreshments will be provided and this meeting is intended to be fun and inspirational to everyone.
If you have never quilted before, but want to learn. This is your chance to learn through our new Modern Guild meetings.

There will be lots to talk about, and much to share. We are asking that you try to RSVP so we can get a good estimate of seats that are needed. Please email me at or RSVP by leaving a comment that you are attending.

We look forward to meeting everyone, and sharing our love of quilting.
