Happy Fall Everyone!

We had a full house for our September meeting.  We had 53 active members and 10 guests.  Wow, we are busting at the seams.  Please consider signing up to help us discuss our MMQG space concerns.  We have a wonderful growing community, we need your help in making sure that we have the space to accommodate everyone without getting into trouble with the fire marshal.  Please sign up here to attend our meeting on Oct. 25th to brainstorm ideas.    

Here is your recap of the September MMQG Meeting:

  • Dayna handed out fabric for the MQG fabric challenge.  Contact Dayna if you signed up but haven’t gotten your fabric yet.

Program: Trisha Franklin presented “Modern or Not”

Wow…. I think I left our September meeting with a college credit in art history as it applies to the modern quilting movement.  Trish Frankland is a wealth of knowledge and we are so lucky to have her in our community.
