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 have the oppotunity to take home the Accuquilt fabric cutter for personal use. We have many dies available and the full list is posted under Forms/Links then click on MTQG Forms. Check out usage is for a maximum of one week, or more if there is no one on the wait list. Sign up each month during the break or contact Sam Logan.

Linda Merrifield of Indio, CA will give a trunk show. Pictures of some of Linda's quilts may be seen Here
Painting With Thread Class
Linda Merrifield will give a thread painting class. Make sure you see the sample she provided. Her technique is similar to paint by number. Instead of paint you will learn to use thread to create your designs. The class project will be a zebra design.
More information on upcoming programs for 2015 may be found on the Programs page.
ECHOS will have a demonstration session. Four or five of our members with special skills will be teaching “Quick Tips for Better Quilting.” This session will be open to everyone – we will be in small groups going from station to station with no machine work involved. Please sign up so that we know how many direction/tip sheets to print. Kay Denny is in charge of this workshop session.
Remember, there are no fees for these classes –they are presented to us by the skillful members of our own Guild. So just come and get lots of new ideas and learn some interesting tips and quilting skills.
For more workshop information, please see the ECHOS page!
