March 2019 Meeting

The excitement of QuiltCon has come and gone. I was fortunate enough to have attended QuiltCon this year and I have returned with knowledge, inspiration, and maybe a little bit of fabric/notions…

The new meeting formats have positive reviews and we are busy planning more great education topics to present to members. I am looking forward to sharing my QuiltCon experience at this month’s meeting and hope to see everyone there!

The next meeting is March 24th.

March’s Meeting is a Sew Day from 10am-8pm @ Home Inn & Suites.
Lunch Break @ 12pm, Meeting from 2-4pm.

Please RSVP to Sherry at smbirnie@gmail.com

January 2019 Meeting

Our November guild meeting centred around looking at our recent survey. This led to having a great discussion which proved to be very productive for our guild’s future. Thanks again to everyone who took the time to fill out the survey and give their feedback.

We are pleased to announce that Charlene and Donna have volunteered to step up as co-chairs for 2019. They are already planning a very exciting year and have taken a lot of the survey’s feedback into account.

2019 will bring some great changes for the Saskatoon MQG and we are looking forward to a year of education, fun, and creativity!

The next meeting is January 27th.
