JUNE 2022 NEWSLETTER
Our June meeting will be our postponed celebration of our 35th anniversary. We will have a cake to celebrate (depending if the church’s mask policy at the time of the meeting) and a show and tell. Do you want to show your first quilt? Your pandemic finishes? Your favorite quilt? Please bring a quilt or 2 for show and tell.

1. WELCOME to QuiltFest Virtual Schoolhouse #3
The third QuiltFest Virtual Schoolhouse will take place, ONLINE, November 2-5, 2022.
Mancuso Show Management is no stranger to online quilting and textile arts seminars. We've learned that many students enjoy learning new and exciting techniques from the comfort of their homes. The great strength of this platform is that both instructors and students do not have any country borders or cultural barriers to their participation from around the world.
Put on the tea and get comfortable in your PJs and slippers, and join us for another of the Virtual Schoolhouse series. More information to come.
