We look forward to seeing you at the Trout Lake Community Centre on Monday night for the Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild’s October meeting! Amy Dame is back from her trip to Portland and has a great slideshow of the Northwest Quilting Expo to share so we can see all of our beautiful quilts in the exhibit!
