Virtual Tuesdays (aka Scraps and Scrappy)

Thanks to everyone who responded to our Survey about Virtual Tuesdays. There is enough interest to warrant continuing to meet via Zoom on second Tuesdays of the month to discuss scrap quilting and other topics of interest, sharing our work and knowledge with one another. The meeting will run from 7:00 – 9:00 PM. All Guild members will receive email reminders of Virtual Tuesday meeting times and Zoom links each month and everyone is welcome to attend at any time.
