You will be able to visit information tables at meetings to learn which events, lectures and workshops are planned, and be able to register in person or online.

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.

The Community Service Committee has kits to check out and complete, as well as finished tops that need quilting and binding.

The Quilt Bank committee members will also have kits to check out to make blocks for large quilts or finished tops needing machine quilting.

The Major Fundraiser Committee usually has kits ready to be assembled, opportunities to volunteer at the Fiesta or take the quilt to shops to sell raffle tickets, help out at the State Fair selling raffle tickets, etc. This is an organized, busy group.

And, there are drawings for prizes at each meeting. Be there.
