Picnic in the Park!

The annual EMQG picnic will be this Wednesday, Aug. 10th, at 6:30 pm in Friendly Park, intersection of Monroe St and West 27th Ave. Bring a dish to share, your own plate & eating utensils & beverage, and a lawn chair or quilt for seating. We will have our usual meeting at the picnic including show-and-tell and the monthly Bee Blocks.
Swap: We'll be doing a Notions Swap at the picnic. Bring a quilting notion (or two) of no more than $10 value in a plain bag and take home a different one. This is a great way for all of us to learn about new tools and notions.

President: Organize monthly meeting agenda; preside over monthly meetings; coordinate guild committees; first point of contact with the Modern Quilt Guild.
