PBQ at MQA Gathering

Each year MQA has a “June” Workshop Gathering, even if this year it occurred on May 30-31. We met at Christ United Methodist Church in Jackson, a great facility with classrooms for us to spread out. We appreciate being able to meet in this facility and especially the efforts of Roanoke McDonald in helping with all the arrangements.

Approxmately 140 quilters attended and enjoyed classes, door prizes, news of upcoming events, fellowship, and show & tell. Five Pine Belt Quilters members taught classes, and Shirley Wiltshire as president and her education chairman, Elvia Edwards, did a superb job of registering and making arrangements for all these events. Guilds were generous with door prizes, and vendors provided a great opportunity to shop.
