Big MQG news!! (so big it needs TWO exclamation marks)
  • QuiltCon is becoming an annual event, and a moving one. Previously biennial and located in Austin, it will alternate between a west coast city in even years and an east coast city in odd.
  • Signups have started for the newest free fabric challenge. Members, you should have had your email THIS MORNING. 
Edited to add: word from the big MQG is that the signup is full. Don't know yet if they will allow more people to join in.

  1. Krista Hennebury workshop will be May 22 or 23 right, Friday and or Saturday?

    Just want to be clear so people with routine jobs don't miss out on this great event!
    Is there a way to sign up online?
