Meeting Starts:     -- 10:00 a.m.  Sharp

Note: Visitors door admission -U.S. $7.00 per meeting

guests -- sign in and pay at door (this helps pay for venue and speakers)

It's better to join N.Q.C. you receive so much with membership. Membership dues U.S. $30.00 per year-- your meetings are free, plus, you receive newsletter and great information about everything concerning other quilters in the area and pattern for your BOM entry. Updates for each meeting through clubs newsletter sent out to you before meetings.

There are only 5 meetings per year not huge commitment.  Meetings move around areas and not always in one venue. NQC meetings are strictly for your enjoyment with guest lecturers. The only thing to do is make BOM that is published in newsletter, and lucky winner wins the BOM. Then you're well on your way to making a quilt with all the blocks.

Fantastic guest speakers/trunk shows etc. Just sit in audience and enjoy speakers and have fun with the Auffle (auction/raffle) Great way to make money for clubs

For all members - get in on the ground floor and join the executive to see how things are done. Don't be shy and sit there, get involved and meet other quilters.

Things to bring:

Exchange block; show and Share items; name tag; coffee mug, your lunch, as host club only supplies drinks and sweets, money for  Auffle, and a smile as you'll enjoy meetings

Host group supplies beverages and dessert
