Harvest Festival at the Centennial Barn



At out meeting last night we talked about having a booth at the Centennial Barn's Harvest Festival, which takes place on Sunday, October 16, from 12-4. We're asking for volunteers to help run the booth and also to donate items that we can sell at the Festival. Victoria suggested that we sell anything from handmade items to crafting supplies and books. Please leave a comment below if you'd like to volunteer, and note whether you'd be willing to run the booth, donate items, or both.




Thank you!

Our first Sew-In at our new home





The Cincinnati Modern Quilt Guild held our first Sew-In of the year at The Centennial Barn, our group's new home. I have always wanted to quilt inside of a barn, and today I got the chance. And although it might sound a bit corny, it really felt like home.


Our group worked in a second-floor loft area, which was set up with plenty of table space and room to spread out.














The Barn was built in 1898 and was renovated in 2010. It's located on a 35-acre parcel of land that is part of the St. Clare Convent which is run by the Franciscan Sisters of the Poor, who could not be more kind, generous, and accommodating to our group.

Here are a few shots of the exterior of the Barn, which is constructed from brick and has an adorable green metal roof. It was way too cloudy today to get many good photos!







I bet this view will be beautiful in the spring and summer.





The renovation of the Barn was done extremely well, and I especially love that so many of the it's original features have been kept intact. There are tons of exposed beams and rafters throughout the interior.










There are tons of exposed brick walls inside too. Don't you just love the pattern of this arched section?






And the cutest barn doors you've ever seen.








Our monthly meetings will be held in this large room on the first floor.



We'll have plenty of room to gather and we even have a flat screen tv and dvd player available for our use, which will be great for presentations, speakers, or even a couple of chick flicks during our next Sew-In. ;)

There are more original beams and moldings in our room.





And the cutest little windows.






There is even an attached kitchenette that we can use during our meetings.




The CMQG meets monthly, on the second Wednesday of the month, from 7-9 pm. Our next meeting will be on March 9th, and if you're in the area, we'd love to have you join us! Feel free to email us at info@carpet-cleaners.info for more information, or check out our Facebook page.
