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

I hope everyone is staying cool with this awesome summer weather!  AND everyone is super excited for our first ever VMQG Showcase!  For this August Meeting we are happy to have our very own Amy Dame give us some pointers on working/sewing with vinyl!  Yay!
