March Business notes

ALCQ Business Meeting January 7, 2010
A new quilters’ resource is available online for those of you who want to mix quilting with
dreams of far-away places. Check out http://www.quiltposium.com/ is the site for this resource,
which combines articles by famous quilters, free patterns and downloads as well as information
on trips around the globe. The trips are all centered around quilters! Scheduled to be published
quarterly, the second issue is now available...and it’s free. It’s actually a marketing tool by the
travel agency that arranges the quilting tours, but articles are still interesting—and we always
get a magazine for the articles, right?
