AQG Meets MSQC

May 6-8, members of the guild who are registered will be traveling to Missouri Star Quilt Comp any for our bus trip.

Important Information about the bus trip:

  • Bus loading starts at 7:30 am and the bus leaves at 8 am from the North Little Rock Visitor’s Center. Click the link below for a map of this location.

  • You may bring snacks and drinks, but drinks must have secure (closeable) lids, and snacks should not be too messy.

  • Each person will have an overhead compartment where a small bag or purse can be placed, and there is plenty of storage in the bottom for luggage. It is a good idea to bring something to do on the bus (handwork, knitting/crochet/cross-stitch, crosswords, books, etc).

  • Each participant is asked to bring 3 fat quarters and 3 small notions for games on Monday night, if you would like to participate.

  • Two breakfasts and one dinner will be provided, but you will need to bring money for three lunches and one dinner.

We Need Your Help!

The guild is in need of some positions to be filled.  If you or anyone you know is willing to serve in these positions, please contact the guild at the phone number or email listed above.

  •  A photographer during meetings to take pictures of all the beautiful quilts during show and tell and to document meetings for the future members of the guild.

  • An individual to do public relations and advertising for the guild.  This would include taking flyers to local quilt shops for workshops the guild is sponsoring, and procuring ads from various quilt shops and vendors for the guild for the newsletter.

The deadline to submit lists is past, but keep working on finishing those UFO’s.
