Local & National Speakers

Contact Tara with suggestions of 1) Guild members who can teach a skill 2) Local instructors and 3) Topics you want to learn about.We had a break out session to brainstorm ideas for future meetings and national speakers. Each group considered speakers and topics of interest. Tara will collect the names and topics in a spreadsheet and determine what appeals to our group most.

The roster has been updated with National Modern Quilt Guild and our membership renewal has been paid for 2020! Note: We continue to maintain an affiliation with national to simplify administration and taxes for our local guild. Additionally, membership to national provides lots of resources and discounts to individual members.
