Quiltcon 2023/Georgia – In response to the recent political decisions in Georgia, members nation wide were inquiring about changing the location for Quiltcon 2023. Aleeda Crawley, member of our guild, and also a member of the MQG Board of Directors, reported to us that it would not be possible to change the location due to financial penalties. If you would like more details or have any questions, you may email Aleeda directly.
