January 2015 Program:
What Did The Judges Say? 

Alice Johnson will try to shed some light on comments the judges made on the  quilts you entered in our November quilt show.  If you received a puzzling  comment, or even not so puzzling, send the comment to Alice  kaj68@att.net  beforehand.  If practical, there will be an illustrated answer providing  you contact her in a timely manner! 

 Meeting of February 4, 2015 will not be at Peter White Public Library due to a scheduling conflict. Instead, we will meet at Redeemer Lutheran Church, 1700 West Fair Avenue.  The February meeting will be a sewing bee from 3 to 9pm, come when you can with your sewing machine, supplies, and projects for some sewing time! Work on charity projects or your own project.

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.  

The MCQA Constitution & Bylaws were revised and approved in September 2011.
