November Meeting Review

The last meeting of the Rochester Modern Quilt Guild took place on Wednesday, November 12th at the Fairport Baptist Home.  We had many familiar faces and also welcomed several new guests! As a reminder…dues are DUE! Please get yours to Julie ASAP if you haven’t already. Membership cards and buttons were given out to MQG paid members; see Sherri if you did not get yours!
Committee Reports:
