April Meeting Highlights

From the April 25th Meeting  

"Technology in a Modern Guild" presented by members Kristie Jarchow and Jennifer Van Dyke. "iKristie" helped us navigate our own Lincoln Modern Quilt Guild blog and the Modern Quilt Guild website and showed us many places of interest for quilters on the web. 

The LMQG blog has all the information you will need for upcoming guild activities. This information is also shared on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, so be sure to like and follow us on those social media platforms. You can find them by clicking on the buttons in the sidebar!

Curves Challenge  
Completed Curves Ahead Challenge pieces are due at the May meeting. There will be prizes for the top three viewers choice.

Please bring your ideas for future programming.
