Announcing Affinity Space at QuiltCon 2024, hosted by the MQG IDEA Committee

We know that QuiltCon is a LOT, especially for those of us who may feel more alone at a large quilt show. Beginning with QuiltCon 2024, we are offering an Affinity Space for groups to gather and decompress. This is reserved for members of affinity groups, such as Latinx quilters, Black quilters, LGBTQIA+ quilters, etc (This would not be appropriate for guild or bee gatherings.) Any MQG member can request the space for the group they’d like to gather. The MQG IDEA Committee will review all submissions and if a proposal is accepted, it will appear on the QuiltCon Interactive Schedule so other attendees can find it!

Members of the MQG IDEA committee:

Aleeda Crawley
Cohni Acevedo
