Monthly Meetings

Boise MQG monthly membership meetings are Sew Days. Sounds more fun than “meetings,” huh?

  • Sew Days can comprise of workshops, special projects, or just whatever quilting or sewing project you want to bring. Also, bring something you’ve made recently, to be highlighted during Show and Tell.
  • Sew Days are generally held the 4th Saturday of each month from 1 to 4 p.m. Recently, we’ve been meeting virtually via Zoom, and the links are provided to current members through our current member email list. When we are able to meet in person, we’ll notify you through our email list (and post the details here on the website) where the location will be. Please refer to the calendar in the sidebar for the most current dates, times and locations.
