November Meeting Recap

Fun news! We will be having an exhibit of our quilts at the Pennsylvania National Quilt Extravaganza from September 12-15, 2019. We will be displaying the Inspiration Challenge quilts together as a group. We will also have a section for members’ quilts - we will send more details about how to enter in the spring.

We encourage everyone to think about running for a leadership position in January. You must be a member for a year in January. All positions are open: President, VP Programs, Treasurer, VP Membership, and Social Media. More details on the positions are in our bylaws

If you have a technique or approach to quilting you’re passionate about, please consider leading a meeting next year! Let us know if you’re interested. Members who lead meetings get a $25 gift card. 

The name tag challenge winner is Cheryl - congratulations!
