How to Get to Wood Hall

Hello Everyone!

I hope you are getting excited for our meeting on July 25!  I am really looking forward to seeing Angela Pingel and learning about curved piecing!

Please remember we are meeting at Wood Hall on WMU's campus on Saturday, where we have access to a projector and sound system.

Here is a file you can download with directions to WMU's campus and to Wood Hall.

I included directions from the north or south, if you are coming from out of town.  Those of you who are local can probably look at the map to navigate your way to campus.

There is road construction going on on campus right now, and parts of Ring Road are closed.  It will be easiest to enter campus from the W. Michigan Ave./Howard St. corner.  As soon as you enter campus, you'll come to a traffic circle.  Go around it as if to turn left (second exit).  Then, take the first right into a parking lot.  You can park anywhere in the lot, but if you park in the upper RIGHT corner of the lot (oops--I wrote left corner on the first page of the map--sorry--you might want to correct this on the map).  See the attached map and where I put the X for parking.  Then, follow the sidewalk that goes kitty-corner (as in the map), and you'll see Wood Hall.

Download Map to Wood Hall.

I'll have signs up to help you find the classroom we are meeting in when you get to Wood Hall.  It's right inside the main doors.

Please send me email if you have any questions:  stephiepeterson(at)yahoo(dot)com
My phone number is in our directory if you need to call or text me.

Can't wait to see you all at 10:30 am on Saturday the 25th!

Quilt show info and on line entry

Hi All,

As Joann mentioned in her recent  email, the Kalamazoo Log Cabin Quilt Guild will have a quilt show in October.  We have the opportunity to have a row of modern quilts. Woohoo!! Here is a link to show Info
We  have put together an on line submission form.  There is a deadline of July 20 on the form.  We are going to work on extending that. If you want to turn in your submission at our July meeting, we think  that will work.  There will be lots of tech help available if needed. Just let us know if you need help.

Let's get those quilts in the show and show Kalamzoo what modern quilts are all about.  It will be so fun to see all our challenge quilts on display.  Here is the link to the  On line form.  You can submit your quilt picture electronically.  Just follow the directions on the form.  We will post more info about how to prepare your quilt for hanging at the show soon.
