Mary’s River Guild General Meeting
February 23, 2017
Marcia of the program committee called the meeting to order and introduced Judy and Angelia Peterson, mother and daughter quilt partners who shared their Journey of Two Technique Junkies. They have an amazing collaborative process which allows them to make beautiful (no boundaries to be found) art quilts.
After the program and a short break guild president Barbara called the meeting back to order. Seven visitors were welcomed and a new member introduced. Barbara asked for some assistance on behalf of some of the new board members who were looking for information which was obtained from those present.
