  No Fooling! It’s a Sew Day! Hooray!
From Coralie and the Program Committee:

Hi everyone,
For our April Quilt Guild Meeting, we will have the MACC Wave Room available from 1:00 pm on. We may use it through the evening so we won't have to move to the community room, unless we're coming apart at the seams in the evening. Anyway we're cleared to use the room all afternoon and evening. (And that's no April Fool’s joke.)
See you soon, Blessings all, Coralie

Bring your own project to work on, or plan to work on a Charity project.

Karen S. says the extensive “stash” of fabric to make charity quilts will be there, ready to be used in Teddy Bear quilts, Bay Cliff quilts, Veterans quilts, or Neonatal quilts. Check with the member for each Charity initiative, or check the Charity Quilt Guidelines available on our website.

Brown Bag your dinner or pick up something from Paladino’s around the corner before
7 pm. Andrew says the menu on our meeting day will include Tomato-Basil soup, among the choices. Marquette Magazine recently featured Paladindo’s in this article: http://www.marquettemagazine.com/paladinos-cafe-serves-it-up-fresh-local-and-fast/ or see what’s up on their Facebook page.

History of the Marquette County Quilters

In early 1978 a young Marquette boy was burned in a house fire. Silver Creek School Association parents decided to make a raffle quilt to help pay for the boy's expenses at the Ann Arbor Burn Center. They met in Mary Margaret Sloan's home. The workers enjoyed the time spent talking and sharing together about quilting and decided to organize a group to meet regularly. They arranged a meeting place and set a date for the first meeting of the Marquette County Quilters Association. Twenty enthusiastic quilters attended that very first meeting.

Members of MCQA have continued to meet and are
dedicated to the promotion and preservation of the art of quilting, patchwork, applique, and related fiber arts. Centered in Marquette, Michigan, our members hail from several counties in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. MCQA is a nonprofit organization whose members make and donate quilts to various charities, provide education on the art of quilting and host a bi-annual quilt show.
