February 16th:           Program by Ways and Means.  Our much anticipated yearly Auction has been re-scheduled for the February meeting, since the January meeting was cancelled due to inclement weather.  Please plan to bring auction items prior to the start of the meeting.  The Auction supports the Guild.  You will surely find some new treasures to take home with you.  If you are the high bidder of course!


March 16th:            Program by Paula Golden.  Paula will tell us about the history of the Virginia Quilt Museum (VQM) and curating an exhibit.  Her presentation will showcase quilts from the museum’s collection.  Paula and Josephine Millett, our guild liaison with the VQM, will talk to us about the Shenandoah Valley Quilters Guild’s very own exhibit at the Virginia Quilt Museum set for the summer of 2019.


Be sure to bring the quilt you are most proud of to be reviewed for the exhibition.
