monthly Meetings

MCQA monthly meetings are the first Wednesday of every month, 6:30pm in the Community Room of the Peter White Public Library, 217 N. Front St, Marquette. All are welcome!

Each month, we have a short business meeting, a break for refreshments, a program to learn tips and techniques, and a “show and tell” so members can share their projects and experiences.

 

show and tell

Check out the Show and Tell from our most recent (September 2019) monthly meeting. MCQA members are a talented and supportive bunch. All skill levels and styles welcome!
