Ready for a fun Mini Swap?!
Our friends with the Las Vegas Modern Quilt Guild have invited us to join them in a mini swap. This will be a great way to make new friends with our Vegas counterparts. The theme for this mini swap is Rainbow. Each SLMQG participant will make a mini for a LVMQG participant and vice versa.
We (the SLMQG participants) will be turning in minis at the October 17th meeting, where board members will ship in one package down to the LVMQG board. We will receive the minis from the LVMQG and handout during our November 17th meeting. If you can’t make one or both of those meetings but still want to participate, don’t worry…you still can. We can work out alternative drop offs and pick ups with you.
Here’s all the information you need for the Las Vegas + Salt Lake Mini Swap:
Mini Swap Timeline and Important Dates:
Deadline to sign up – July 14th
Deadline to post mosaic on Instagram – August 1st
