Program Leaders for 2022:

Diane & Glenna have volunteered to be Program Leaders for two months in 2022. The guild needs other EMQG members to volunteer for other months. Thanks Diane & Glenna!


Pat suggested a guild challenge idea for January using quilting magazines for reference. Stay tuned for details. And thanks, Pat!


Virtual Sew Day:

Our next virtual sew day will be on October 23rd. Ken will send the Zoom link closer to the event.
