2021 Covid-19 Update
Due to potential travel and meeting restrictions, our coordinators have had to consider the safety of both the speakers and our members. Please note any possible changes to individual events.
Piecing Partners strives to offer a wide variety of talented and motivational guest speakers. These gifted presenters teach us many things, not only about quilts and the art of quilting, but how to persevere and grow during the process. Please join us as we expand our knowledge and perspective!

Community Outreach Programs, PPQG Members
Genie Brown, Robin Thorne and Becky Chapin will be reviewing what busy bee quilters we've been fulfilling requests for quilts of all sizes and what organizations we're supporting.
January 19 Afternoon: Sit and Sew
The afternoon will be a sit and sew where we'll have a couple of kits to work with for putting together a top or 2. Just plan on bringing your machine and neutral thread. OR if you have a project you’d prefer to work on, bring it!
Send me an email before January 19th so that I'll know how many tables to set up.
