February Meeting Notes

Our amazing notetaker Barb was busy living it up at QuiltCon, so sorry the notes aren't as lovely as usual! Can't wait to hear from our friends that attended how it went!

Joanne Lester from the James Stitching Sisters was our powerful guest speaker. Everyone was moved by the amazing stories she shared and the amazing number of quilts that this group have made! Lots of folks took quilt kits to make a quilt to donate to the project and if you would like to get one too, let us know.
