Guild continues using Zoom

Quilt North guild plans on using a Zoom program platform for our September 2020  –  January 2021 meetings. We will have both our speakers and workshops on Zoom and hope to offer some other fun programs as well. We have had some great Zoom events already! Alex Anderson’s lecture and workshop in July were exciting and showed us that we can continue to have high quality experiences using this virtural format.

The board and committees have been working hard on figuring out the logistics of delivering all the elements of our great meetings virtually – from Block of the Month to Show and Tell.

Tech support and practice sessions have and will be offered so no one is left out!

We miss seeing all our quilting friends! As disappointing as it is that we can’t meet as usual, we are excited that we can be together and connected with this new format. You won’t want to miss what’s coming in 2020-2021! Renew your membership today; click here to access the membership form.
