April Meeting Agenda

The Seacoast Modern Quilt Guild will next meet on April 6th from 10:00-12:00.  This time, we will be meeting in the clubhouse at Riverwalk & Drake's Landing, a condominium complex in Hampton, NH.  It is located on Towle Farm Road. As you turn into the complex the clubhouse is the first building on your left. There is parking on the street or down at the pool. The driveway to the pool is the first left after the clubhouse. Down the hill is a parking lot that should accommodate everyone
Directions:   From Rt 95. Take exit 2, onto 101 East. Very first exit off is route 27 towards Hampton. Come off the exit and bear right, to the stop sign and turn right onto Rt 27. Approximately a mile down on the right is Towle Farm Road. Turn right into Towle Farm and the complex is the second (2nd) left. The signs will say Riverwalk and Drakes Landing. There is a duck Pond on the right and a little market on the left. We are the next left.
JoAnne has provided us with the venue and will also provide a snack.  Can someone volunteer to provide a beverage?  Just email  me.  We have papergoods.
A speed round of Show and Tell because we have a lot to cover this month!
We will share the Asbury Challenge finished projects, photograph them and vote.  The popular winner will receive a copy of In the Studio with Angela Walters.
We will discuss the newly announced membership plan for the MQG. I "attended" a Webinar about the changes this past week and will share the details.
And finally, I will show how you can use EQ7 to design quilt blocks and quilt  layouts. I hope you will come with lots of specific questions to guide me.  Feel free to interrupt as I go with questions too.
