 Happy New Year to all! I hope your holiday season was a wonderful time to be with family and friends and quilting.

And to kick off the new year, our first meeting is this Saturday, Jan 3, at the usual place and time!
If you have not paid your dues, please bring your checkbook (go ahead and put it in your bag now--I know it is an old school payment option). We would love to have 2024 memberships wrapped up for the new year.
The new board has already been busy at work gearing up for a great year ahead, so you'll want to hear all the news.
And GMQG member, Pat Merkle, will be doing our program, showing QAYG techniques.
See you all Saturday!!
