Magazine Labels!  Guild Awareness Campaign and Decluttering for You!

These labels are ready for you to print at home and clear your stacks of quilting magazines by leaving at locations where magazines are shared such as a doctor’s or dentist’s offices, nail or hair salon, or even the place you get your car’s oil changed!

A terrific idea from Margaret Natof. Our thanks to her.

Not so interested in printing yourself? Pick up a packet of 10 or more at the next meeting–in the foyer as you come in.
