We were inspired by our guest speaker, Dr Keith Thurlow-Bishop, from Covenant House. Watch for information on how guild members can help by volunteering, donating supplies or making quilts.

Communication Changes

We realize that regular communication is important for VancouverMQG members, and we’ll continue to issue monthly newsletters. Look for a newsletter in your inbox on the 1st of each month.

In addition, we’ll send out a meeting reminder, and any updates, 2-3 days before each meeting.

You’ll also be able to see Newsletters on the guild’s website, under 'Newsletters.'
