If you haven’t already marked your calendar and turned your thoughts to MACo’s Annual Conference, now is the time to do it.  This year’s Annual Conference will be held at the Holiday Inn Missoula Downtown, 200 South Pattee Street, Missoula, MT, (406) 721-8550.  Be sure when you call to reserve your room, you ask for the MACo group rate. The cut-off date for making room reservations is September 14, 2015.  The room rate is $89 plus tax.

We encourage everyone to gather up spouses, friends and children for 4 days of stimulating workshops, challenging speakers, important business meetings, and last, but not least, great food and entertainment. 

It is important when you are registering that you check mark the box for those meals you will be attending.  This is so that we will have a close meal count.  If you are arriving late or leaving early, please do not mark the meals that you will not be there for.

The quilting project for spouses will be scheduled again this year.

 

"The American Hero Quilt Project is on again during MACo in Missoula this year.  Please bring your sewing machine, rotary cutter, mat and ruler and any other basic sewing supplies. 

We will spend our time making red, white and blue quilts that will be given to injured soldiers at the Madigan Army Hospital in Washington State.  Last year we got 7 quilt tops made. 

The Forsyth PieceMakers Quilt Guild will furnish the backing and batting, finish quilting them and ship them to the hospital.If you don't sew, that's OK.  We will teach you how to cut, you can press, or you can design.  There is a place for everyone!

You can come for an hour, a day or for the whole process.  Don't feel obligated to stay the whole time.  We welcome everyone for as much time as they would like to spend.

We would like to ask each county to bring at least 1 yard of red, white or blue fabric.  We also use cream or beige or gold.  The fabric cannot have any sparkle or metallic thread in it.

If you have any questions, please email Marlys Lee at marlyslee@rangeweb.net or call her at 346-2969 (home) or 351-3039 (cell)."

If any of the exhibitors want to bring 1 yard of material, it would be greatly appreciated and please feel free to be a part of the project if you want.
