Crystal Quilters Guild - Important Update

A message from the Crystal Quilters Guild President:

Hi Everyone:
I want to get a quick note off to you all to let you know that our March 20th workshop is cancelled as well as our April 3rd Guild Meeting and the April 17th Workshop.
I feel, as do others in the guild & our community, that we need to be safe & healthy, not sorry & sick.  Being the resourceful talented quilters that we all are, I’m sure we will all spend those days at home finishing up quilts, wall hangings, tablerunners etc. etc. etc. for our September Annual Quilt Show. 
Please take care of yourselves and stay healthy, love you all. 
Happy quilting
Pat

Important Update!

The March 6th Crystal Quilters Guild lunch and meeting has been CANCELLED as a safety measure due to the COVID-19 coronavirus.

As you may have heard, it’s been recommended that those over sixty, or with medical conditions or pregnant, avoid large groups. Since the majority of our guild falls into at least one of these categories, Pat Garrett has made the decision to cancel our March Crystal Quilters Guild meeting. Please pass this along to other guild members.
