West Ada 4th Grade Rendezvous For the third year in a row, BBQ is pleased to accept the invitation to participate in the West Ada School District 4th Grade History Rendezvous at Meridian Middle School Friday, May 17th.  We have a fun short program about quilt history, followed by time for the 4th graders, their teachers and chaperones to look at examples of quilts made over the last 120 years, vintage sewing machines, ask BBQ members  questions and watch quilt making demonstrations. Send an email to outreach@boisebasinquilters.org or call Connie Emmen (208.336.9919, landline, no text) if you can help. It’s a highlight of our year in BBQ outreach!
