May Meeting Recap: Announcements

What a fun meeting! I think I could write that a million times! Jacquie Gering shared her quilts with us, Alissa Haight Carlton spoke about MQG and hosted our BOM and we had a great party at Modern Domestic to celebrate, well -- us!  I hope everyone had a chance to participate in activities over the weekend too: There was fun to be had by all!

Here is a recap of our committee reports and announcements. 

Call for 21st Century Quilts! Our next PMQG Quilt Documentation Day is set for Saturday June 22nd from 12-5pm in the Lab Space at the Museum of Contemporary Craft. Sign-ups are live on our events page and will be first come first serve. There is a $15 charge for each quilt that is documented.
Our revised draft of the bylaws is available for review. Please email us with Bylaw in the subject line if you would like a pdf for review.
