March Meeting

The march meeting will be held a week early (March 21st) because of Easter.



The program for the meeting is a trunk show by Cinzia Allocca.

Her  quilts are inspired by modern art, and style is defined by simplicity of form and design, allowing color and simple shapes to convey a message that is upbeat and heartfelt.
