New Members Group:

 

The  first meeting of the "Mountain Top Quilt Guild New Members Group" was Thursday, August 22, 2013 at 10:00 am. We met at "Cloth Plus" which is located in Prescott Valley at 6479 Copper Hill Rd.   We had an opportunity to see many of Whitney's beautiful quilts and l visited New Member Logowith her while we shopped, fondled or just got great ideas for our future quilts. Lynne gave a demonstration on different ways to make a basic block, and guild member Carol Miller gave us an insight into her quilting experience. Diana Ramsey, who was the current MTQG president, spoke about the guild's activities.

If you have joined MTQG in the last two years you are part of this group.  Any new members or potential new members are welcome at these gatherings, please invite them to join us for friendship, fun and education.  Reservations not necessary but a call or email Martie Winkelman or Karen Adams if you plan to attend would be appreciated.
