Quilt Festival 2010 - "Sew Many Friends"

Have you received your catalog of classes for Quilt Fest 2010?  (If you are a UQG member you should have gotten it around June 1st.)  This year we are going to the Zermott Resort in Midway, UT.  The festivities will begin on Tues. evening, Oct. 6, with a lecture by Mary Stori followed by "Meet the Teachers".  It's always fun to see the actual project for each class AND to meet all the wonderful teachers....national and local.  The fun will continue through Sat. afternoon.

*DON'T FORGET .... 5 p.m. July 16th is the registration deadline to be included in the random computer drawing for classes*  Sept. 4th is the last day to cancel and get a refund.

For lots more information on Quilt Fest 2010, go to Utah Quilt Guild.  Class information, teachers, and activities are now online.
