April 20th meeting reminder

Our next meeting is 7:00pm, Monday, April 20th

Meeting Notes
Welcome to QuiltCon sign

QuiltCon, the quilt show and conference put on by The Modern Quilt Guild, may have happened two months ago, but it’s still fresh in the minds of our members who visited Austin, Texas. Several VMQG members will share about their QuiltCon experiences at our meeting and Shelagh Rooney is going to talk about her trip to Gee’s Bend, Alabama.

At this meeting, we’ll also be opening up registration for the VMQG Weekend Quilting Retreat happening at Edenvale, October 16-18th, 2015. If you’d like to register, please bring a cheque for the $50 deposit to tomorrow’s meeting. There will be a lottery if we have more interest than spaces after our April meeting.
