What to Expect At the Meetings…

Depending on the type of meeting, it might be offered in-person, on Zoom, or both!  Register in advance to receive all of the details.

At in-person monthly meetings, plan to arrive up to 30 minutes early so you have time to visit information tables  to learn about upcoming guild activities and how to get involved.

Committees usually have kits prepared and ask for members' help in completing quilt blocks, tops, and quilting work, as well as quilty crafts that are sold at fundraisers.

A large group of NMQA’s library books and materials are delivered to the meetings each month. They can be checked out for a two-month period. Often excess materials are for sale for a nominal fee.

There is always a show & tell session, so bring your finished project.

This is an organized, busy group and opportunities to get involved abound!
