Hello All!

Kay put the following information on the Facebook page.  I would like to thank her because I forgot to add this info to my notes.

“Georgia Celebrates Quilts” which will take place June 11-13, 2015. This is the largest judged and juried show in the state, and we have a chance to enter quilts. Go to this link for categories, rules, and entry formhttp://ecqg.com/quilt-show/quilt-entry/. Also, if we purchase tickets to attend as a group of 10 or more, we get a 20% discount (only $8 per person)! Thanks ECQG for coming to share with us!
