Happy New Year & 2015 Schedule

Happy New Year!

We are looking forward to another year with our Modern Quilt friends!  Our group is changing a little, but staying the same a lot this year too!  A small steering committee met in December to talk about our ideas for the new direction as a small group of the DMAQG and activities for meetings in 2015. We welcome all members' input as we move forward, especially as you will notice there are some holes in the calendar. Let us know if you have any ideas!!

We will continue to meet on the third Thursday of each month at 6:30 p.m., now at a new and consistent location! West Des Moines Community Center, 134 6th Street, West Des Moines, IA [click for map] Below is a list of our tentative topics for the coming year. I will send out more details closer to each meeting date. Every meeting we will also have show and tell by all, bring whatever you are working on (and remember, works-in-progress just as acceptable as finished pieces!)

Looking forward to a great year with our Des Moines Modern Quilt GROUP!
