We’ll begin our meeting with a delicious potluck: Taco Bar! Bring your appetites and something yummy to share with your guild mates! We’ll follow our potluck dinner up with a brief informational portion before our program, giving all members an update on what is currently going on with the guild and what is coming up.

Our program for August’s Guild Meeting will be presentation by Kaye England. And, as time allows, we will finish the Guild Meeting with Show and Tell, in which members will share and showcase their quilts or quilted projects.

Note: This Meeting will require a $10 fee for all non-members.
