Meeting #86 (September 8, 2018)

Hello modern quilters! Can you believe it's September already? Be honest -- who's already had their first (or 12th) pumpkin spice latte of the year? No judging here. This month, we're excited to be hosting Latifah Saafir, one of the founders of the Modern Quilt Guild, at our meeting. We hope you can join us!

Date: September 8, 2018
Time: 10 am-12:30 pm
Location: The Center of Clayton

50 Gay Ave.
Clayton, MO 63105
Meeting Rooms B&C (1st Floor)
***Please make special note of the location change for this month's meeting! We will NOT be meeting at our normal location at The Heights. Childcare is also not available for this meeting. We apologize for any inconvenience.***

***Important: Like all of our meetings, this monthly meeting is open to guests. However, due to the special trunk show presentation, there is a $5 entry fee for non-members, payable at the door. We think you'll find the presentation is well worth it. You can also choose to become a member for just $20! There is no cost for members.***
