What's Happening At Our Next Guild Meeting?

June 2017

Guest Speaker
Meg will be speaking on Success Secrets from QuiltRepeneurs (Tula Pink, Eleanor Burns, Mary Fons, etc).
"There is nothing wrong with keeping quilting as a passionate hobby, but if you think you might like to make some money at the craft, then Meg has a lot to share with you."
