PHXMQG Meeting Agenda
June 17, 2017 1-4pm
The Tech Shop with Sew Bella’s Quilt Cart
Introduction of new members & guests
Approval of May 2017 meeting minutes
A huge “thank you” for hosting us in this lovely classroom! Make sure to ask for a tour and check out the long arm - this is a great option if you’re interested in getting into longarming or finishing some of your quilts but don’t want to invest in buying your own machine! Reach out to Erynn via the secretary email if you have any questions.
We will make sure to announce when we have worked through the details for getting a corporate rate for the guild - if you'd like to join the TechShop please email Erynn at firstname.lastname@example.org so we have an accurate count for negotiations.
July Meeting will be at Mulqueens and we will be doing quilt on charity quilt block sewing
