Meeting Notes

Our June meeting marks five years since the founding of the Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild and we hope you’ll come celebrate with us whether you just found out about our guild at Maker Faire or you’ve been with us since the start!

This meeting will be fun and festive with a game, treats, fruit punch, and plenty of door prizes as well as our regular meeting highlight – show and tell! We’ll be handing out journal covers to those of you who participated in the swap with Modern Quilt Guild Victoria.
