January Meeting Reminder

NOTE: We have been able to add an extra half hour to our meeting times!

Also wish a fond farewell and "job well done" to board members stepping down.

Membership dues for 2018 are still being accepted! 

Modern Strings Challenge to be presented by Judy Crockett

There will be a suggestion box so you can make your voice heard.
We will be taking suggestions from you, our members, for ideas on future challenges/programs. Think about what you want in a challenge or program, which techniques interests you. We want to hear what you are interested in learning more about. 

Those that competed in the MQG Michael Miller fabric challenge, please bring your finished item, if you still have it. We would LOVE to see it!

If you have finished your QuiltCon Mini Swap quilt and haven't mailed it away yet, please bring it for Show and Tell!

As always, bring your modern show and tell items to share with the group.
