of the art of quilting by providing educational meetings, travel, fellowship and the promotion
 of a variety of quilting activities.

PPQG Reminder

Just a reminder, we have a large room that our speakers present their programs in making it difficult to always hear everything well.  So we are reminding everyone to eliminate side conversations and minimally interrupt the speaker/presenter during presentations.  We should save questions for the end.  Your assistance is much appreciated.  
Thanks  Missy.
