May Meeting Recap

I have been so busy with the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day this morning and I almost forgot this post! 

This month we had a wonderful presentation from Amber and Paula on utilizing your camera for photographing quilts. One of the big tips is read your manual!! Crazy right but really so important. We also learned a lot about lighting. We are lucky to have the overcast days in the Pacific Northwest which is ideal.
I am hoping to have some more info from the power point for you soon.

We also had a 10 minute presentation by Michelle on participating in swaps and a new fabric swap she's hosting for guild members. Here's the link to the swap I think there are ten spots left. 
Michelle is also giving away a spot on her blog for Giveaway Day the winner will receive a pack of all of the final fabrics.
