YHQG Zoom Training Sessions

For the past month, the YHQG Tech Team has been working on getting ready for the Guild’s first Zoom practice meetings.

YHQG Members are invited to attend Zoom Guild Meetings which will be held on July 7 and July 14 at 7:00 p.m. Zoom “doors” will open at 6:45.

Zoom co-ordinates for each meeting will be sent by email to members a day or two before each meeting.

We know that many of you may not be familiar with all the features of Zoom. We will include Zoom training sessions at our July 7 and July 14 meetings, and will have a meeting solely dedicated to Zoom training on September 8, 2020, in case you can’t make one of the July meetings, or in case you want to have a review before our regular September 15, 2020 meeting, which will take place virtually.

If you don’t have a computer/tablet/iphone etc., don’t worry. You will be able to hear our meetings by phoning in to the meetings. You won’t get to see the various presentations, but you will be able to hear the various participants in the meetings.

The July 7 and July 14 meetings will consist of an introduction to Zoom for users of all platforms, a few brief announcements, Show and Share, and an opportunity for attendees to ask questions and chat with one another.

These are practice meetings for the Tech Team as well as for our members. We’re still learning how to do this. There will be glitches. Please be patient!

Participation in Show and Share:

Please send photos of your Show and Share items to yhqg.zoom@gmail.com at least three days prior to the meeting at which you wish to show them. For Tuesday meetings, that means you should get them in by the preceding Saturday, at the very latest.

At the virtual meeting, you will have an opportunity to speak about your project. When taking photos, if there are areas of your project which you wish to highlight (e.g. sections with embellishment), include a close-up photo as well. Make sure that you include your name in the email which you send in to us.

Keep in mind that, if you plan to display your quilt in a quilt show, you should probably not submit it to Show and Share (depending upon the rules of the show you intend to exhibit).

All photos submitted to Show and Share will be added to the Guild’s Instagram and Facebook accounts (anonymously, so the name of the quilter is not indicated) unless the person submitting the photos clearly indicates in their email that they do not wish to have their project shown on Instagram/Facebook.

We plan to include the summer Show and Share photos at the September Zoom meeting as well; if you don’t want this to be done, please indicate this in your email to yhqg.zoom@gmail.com.


About jmStitching

A love of stitching has been inherited from my mother and grandmother. I can’t remember a time when I didn’t have at least a couple of stitching projects underway. Whether it’s by hand or machine, there are always new projects I’d like to try or fibres I’d like to experiment with…and a few projects waiting to be finished!
