September 2022 Meeting Review

The Saskatoon MQG met on September 25th for a sew day. This was hosted at Home Inn & Suites. There were many laughs at the meeting, and this was followed by shopping at the members garage sale. We decided that we will be doing travelling quilts again in 2023. So please come to the October meeting with past quilts to help explain this to new members. And if super keen, prepare a demo box and block that you would like made.

Next meeting is October 23th at Home Inn & Suites and will be another sew day. Donna will be presenting the “Geology of Quilting” as the education topic.
