MLQG Membership Renewal Reminder

Since harsh weather conditions forced the cancellation of this month's MLQG meeting, some members did not have a chance to pay dues directly to the membership chair at the meeting as hoped.

You can still send your payment to membership chair Dawn P. by snail mail. Dawn's contact info can be found on the guild roster and in every newsletter issue. If you enclose a stamped, self-addressed envelope, Dawn will send you your membership card. If you do not have a roster or newsletter, you can comment on this blog post or use the "contact us" form on the right-side column of this blog, and someone will get in touch with you by private message.

Remember, if you want to keep your MLQG membership privileges for 2019, the annual dues ($20) are due by February 1, 2019. The check should be made out to MLQG.

Thanks!

MLQG Online Presence

At the January 11, 2019 meeting, the MLQG board decided to eliminate the guild's website, since there are other places online where the guild's info is available to members and the general public at no cost to the guild.

 -- MLQG blog -- the guild's blog can be found at mountainlaurelquiltguild.blogspot.com. You can sign up to receive an email every time there is a new post on the blog by typing in your email address in the box located in the right-side column. (Obviously, if you're reading this here, you are on the blog).

 -- MLQG Facebook page -- on Facebook, the guild's page can be found by searching for "Mountain Laurel Quilt Guild". "Like" the page, and you will receive posts in your Facebook newsfeed. You can also reach the guild's Facebook page by clicking on the link located a bit farther down on the right-side column of this blog.

Cancellations, news, and updates on guild events will be published on both the blog and on Facebook.

MLQG also maintains an informal, private group on Facebook called "MLQG -- The Virtual Quilting Bee" where guild members are encouraged to post photos of their projects, questions about quilting, news about upcoming quilt shows, etc. All MLQG members are welcome to join this group.

Questions? Contact Anya T. or Susan McC. You can find their contact info on your copy of the guild's roster or any newsletter. Or you can comment on this post or use the "contact us" form located on the right-side column of the blog.
