We want to congratulate our guild winners, and we hope to see you all at the meeting this weekend. 10am at Handiquilter - see the website for the address. We'll be talking about the show, new gadgets, and I've seen some of the door prizes - they're awsome!

Hope to see everyone there!

Next meeting is May 19th

Dear Guild Members,

Our next meeting is May 19th at 10:00/ Please support HMQS on May 10-12. I hope you have a class or 2 because we want to hear about them at our guild meeting. We just want to know what classes were good, and if they could be recommended for the future, and basically what the class was about. We will have a spotlight on education and new gadgets from the show!

We have a booth at HMQS, so be sure to stop by and say hello. We'll keep your bags safe for you while you shop. So please mark your calendars for these dates and we'll see you at HMQS.
