Name Tags for Next Meeting

We had a great meeting in April and decided that for our May 25th meeting we should all try and make name tags.   There are no restrictions for size or design, just create something to showcase your name and your style and wear it to our a2mqg get togethers.  Can't wait to see what everyone makes!

Online Quilting Bees

Someone was asking at the last meeting about onlines bees.  Many people who are starting bees post here.  Be sure to go to the last page of the discussion for recent posts and see if you can find something that sounds good to you. 
If you haven't done an online bee before, I would really encourage you to do so.  They are lots of fun and a great way to learn new skills or work on those you have.  Happy hunting!
