Secretary Report

  • A huge “thank you” for hosting us in this lovely classroom! Make sure to ask for a tour and check out the long arm – this is a great option if you’re interested in getting into longarming or finishing some of your quilts but don’t want to invest in buying your own machine! Reach out to Erynn via the secretary email if you have any questions.
  • We will make sure to announce when we have worked through the details for getting a corporate rate for the guild – if you’d like to join the TechShop please email Erynn at secretary@phoenixmodernquiltguild.com so we have an accurate count for negotiations.
