VMQG April 17th 2017 Meeting Reminder

Meeting Notes

This is a quick reminder that our next meeting will be on Monday, April 17th, 2017!

Spring has sprung!  Finally!  And we have a fantastic Guild Retreat coming up which makes April so exciting!

This month’s feature is a great one!  A lot of us have seen some fabulously upcycled projects around on the internet and if you are like me have always wondered “How do I even start something like this?” Well fear no more!  We have our very own guild member Amanda Ward who will be telling us exactly what we need to know!!

I can’t wait!  Can’t wait to see everyone at the meeting!
