Art Quilters' meeting tomorrow - 11/2

A message from Buffy Beggs - convemor of the Art Quilt special interest group:

Our first meeting of 2012 will be this Saturday, 11th Feb. at 1pm
I think our first meeting should be planning/priorities, etc so there will be NO mini-workshop.
Let’s talk about where we’re going, what we’d like to accomplish this year, mini-workshops, exhibitions, etc
Bring Show&Tell, books, information about exhibitions or workshops …
See you at 1pm
