Next Monthly Meeting

We will be welcoming Angela Walters at the July 20th Guild meeting. Angela, a nationally known machine quilting teacher, designer, and author, will be presenting a trunk show during the meeting and teaching a workshop the following day. We will also be wrapping up the preparations for our biannual Quilt Show on August 6-7 at Connecticut College in New London.

Upcoming Monthly Meetings

August 17 will be the annual summer picnic which is always fun and a nice way to relax after the work and excitement of the quilt show.
