March Recap

Our March Meeting was fun AND informative! We started off the meeting looking requesting a volunteer to be the 2017 Raffle Coordinator.

If you are interested, please email us. Rhonda answered quite a few questions about the upcoming North Texas Quilt Festival, those FAQs can be found in our North Texas Quilt Festival section.

Donation of Small Pillowcases for Cook’s Children’s Hospital

That is why it is easy to ask for another donation, because you are good with helping our community. Cook’s Children’s hospital is asking for help with smaller pillowcases for their patient: The good news is that you can get TWO pillowcases out of one yard of fabric. Once again, thank you for your help.


#quiltsforpeace Update

This is from Lee, the President of Dallas Modern Quilt Guild: “When the Pulse nightclub shootings happened, the Orlando MQG helped our hearts to heal by asking us to make hearts in rainbow colors for them, DMQG answered that call by committing to 5 complete quilts, and I am proud to say we are looking at a minimum of 9 completed by our guild (we have an amazing group). Then when tragedy struck in our own back yard on July 7th, it seemed the natural thing to make quilts for our city to help us heal.  Ann (President of FWMQG)...
