Meeting Reminder and Details

Meeting Date: Monday, January 17th, 2022
Doors Open: 6:30PM for mixing
Meeting: 7:00PM - 9:00PM

VancouverMQG's first meeting of the year will kick off with one of our members, Dianne Semark, provding us with informtion on the planning for the 2022 Showcase. (Finger's crossed this will be happening this year!!) 

Dianne will go over what the Showcase is all about, how you can participate and what you can expect if you want to volunteer to help. She will need a diverse group of volunteers with a wide range of skillsets and talents, she might be looking for you. 

Her talk will also serve as a reminder, to Get Sewing! so you can have a quilt to hang in the show!! Stretch your creative muscles!

If you haven't seen them yet, Dianne has also created galleries of photos on the VancouverMQG blog of the past two showcases in 2016 and 2018, for everyone to look at. If you have never looked through these galleries, you can find them by click here:
