February 15th Meeting Reminder!

This is a quick reminder that our next meeting will be on Monday, February 15th, 2016!  

It’s February already!  This month, the VMQG is happy to have a presentation from our very own guild member Elke!  Elke’s husband is an architectural photographer who was shooting a house for an architect for an article in Gray magazine and borrowed some quilts from members of our guild.  And now we can see the result!  So exciting!

For this month’s Show & Tell, we would like to do a little feature, the QuiltCon Rejects!  Bring your quilts and give us a little story about them!  After this we will continue with regular Show & Tell.  Bring all your goodies to show us!
