Upcoming Programs 

In June we will have an exciting program featuring our own quilters. If you haven't signed up, please contact Rhonda H. We will be sharing our first quilt (or quilt top) and a recent quilt (or quilt top). Of course, feel free to bring an early quilt/top if you don't have the first one you ever made. This should be fun for alll to look at our progress. Plus this is a great way to encourage new quilters who might be intimidated by our more advanced work (lol).

For July meeting Diana asks that we all make a mug rug to swap.


The 500 giveaway items have all been completed. Thank you to everyone who contributed. The leftover Heat and Bond is being sold for $1.35/yd. E-mail/call Mary D. Marilyn has (had?) 2 pins left for TAQG
