O

ne of the highlights of attending our monthly meetings is the Program.

The informative and varied presentations are given by local, regional, and nationally recognized quilters. You will not only enjoy hearing from the experts, but you will observe slide shows, demonstrations, or tantalizing live trunk shows. Also, there is time for questions and answers for some up close and personal time with speakers. Be prepared to learn new techniques and be “challenged”.  Guests are always welcome to attend the programs for a small $10 fee.
