EMQG General Meeting
Ken informed us that dues will remain $25 for 2022 since we are not paying rent due to covid.
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.
Bonnie is working on our holiday Zoom meeting to be held on December 8th. when we will show our ugly fabric challenge projects! Bonnie will send a participation package to everyone who RSVPs. Please include your address or let Bonnie know if you would prefer to pick up your package.
Global Quilt Connection:
Look for an email from Ken forwarding info from Global Quilt Connection. The email includes four videos of quilting instructors explaining how and what they teach. Ken is trying to gather info from the guild on instructors and topics that guild members want to see. We can combine our guild with another small guild to share costs.
