2. The February meeting will be on a different day, in a different place AND at a different time.  But all for a good reason!  We will be having a fabulous guest speaker, Jen Eskridge of ReannaLily Designs.  Jen is the author of "Deploy that Fabric" and "Hexagons Made Easy" along with being published in various magazines and books.  She is also a member of the San Antonio Modern Quilt Guild.  Her program will be "How to Get Published" along with a trunk show of quilts she has made.  Plus, she will have copies of her books and patterns available to purchase.
