One of the goals of a quilt guild is to provide its members with learning experiences that they may use to develop quilting skills. These experiences are often best provided by lectures or workshops given by both national and local teachers. MTQG provides programs like these each month at general meetings.

Occasionally our meetings may be more social in nature, such as the spring luncheon or ice cream social, and our annual Christmas luncheon.

Quilts and quilting are always part of the day no matter what the occasion.

Scheduled programs and workshops will be presented here, but please see the easelprogram chairperson at general meetings for more information and to sign up for workshops you may be interested in taking.

June 20: Spring Luncheon High Tea and Officer Installation

MTQG members “dressed up” for our annual spring luncheon meeting, including their best hats.  Some white gloves and lovely jewelry were seen as well. There was a hat parade before lunch, and prizes were awarded for three categories:  most elegant, quirkiest (funniest, outlandish, unusual) and vintage.  Betty Foley served as the judge.

The hostess of the table that most reflected the theme of the luncheon was Kristi McHugh, who received a gift certificate for a free MTQG class of her choice from July 2016 through June 2017.  Members were asked to bring a tea cup and saucer; those sitting at each table selected the prettiest cup on the table, and that cup owner received a prize.

Members volunteered to bring tea sandwiches, dessert or fruit. Those bringing the main course provided whole sandwiches, cut into four triangles with the crusts removed.  Gluten free sandwiches were also provided. 

Jan Adams was in charge of this special event.

For tea sandwich and dessert recipes, please see the Tea Time Magazine website.
