WCQG Quilt Show

Went and visited a location for our Quilt show and it was fabulous. It has met all the criteria that was given and will provide a great venue place for our quilt show. More to come on the dates and location. Come prepared to the next guild meeting to hear all about it. --- Karen

Next Meeting

Last month we met for the first time in our new meeting place at the Church of Christ in Bridgeport, Texas. We are very thankful to the church for allowing us to use their fellowship hall for our meetings.
Our next meeting is slated for May 16, 2009. After our business meeting we are scheduled to cut charm squares from green fabric that coordinates with the fabric leftover from our donation quilt. Each member is to bring a yard of green fabric. These charm squares will be used for Rally Day.
Come and join us.
