MTQG Promotional Video:
At the October 26, 2015 Community Quilts workshop, with permission from the board, Terri New, a friend of Kay Denny came to interview and film us for a Prescott promotional video. The video is part of a series on Prescott that she is filming entitled “Humans of Prescott.”

Photos for the Website:
When submitting photos to be displayed on the website, please use the landscape orientation (largest size from left to right) when taking your pictures. The portrait orientation (taller rather than wider) does not work in our slideshows. The webmaster appreciates your help with this!
All members may take home the Accuquilt Go fabric cutter for personal use. There are many dies available and the Accuquilt Go Release form, along with the full list of dies, is posted under Forms/Links then click on MTQG Forms. Generally you may check out the cutter and dies for one or two weeks at a time, subject to the sign up list. To sign up, please read, print, and sign the Accuquilt Go Release form.
