Anyone with an interest in studying quilt history and/or textiles is welcome to attend our biannual meetings the first weekends of April and August in Kalona, Iowa. (unless Easter intervenes) Attendees may enjoy a Friday evening meal at a Conservative Mennonite residence ($14 extra). Saturday meetings include study topic discussion, a tour of the Kalona Quilt & Textile Museum, catered lunch and show & share. Bring study topic quilts or other related materials if you have them, and bring anything that is quilt related for show & share – whatever warms your heart or intrigues your mind. In August, we hold a silent auction. We generally adjourn by 3 pm, and the wonderful quilt and antique shops of Kalona are open until 5 pm. The $30 fee includes lunch. Hope you can join us!
