single_snowflakeWinter Picnic 2019 – Saturday, March 9, 2019


It’s time to start planning our 2019 Winter Picnic.  You know, when you’re sick of the snow, but it’s not quite time to start your gardening chores. Get out of the house! Come spend the day with your quilting cronies, share great food, and get stuff done! Choose to take a class, work on charity projects, or sew on your own UFOs. Most importantly, bring a dish to share for lunch!

We heed help!!! We need teachers, greeters, set-er-up-ers, kitchen helpers, clean-er-up-ers and more. Please contact us at and pitch in to make this annual event great!



Location and time: Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church is located at 1234 N. Arlington Heights Road in Arlington Heights. We’ll gather from 9am to 3:30pm.  We hope everyone plans to stick around and help clean up. Remember, many hands make light work.

Registration: $6.00 if preregistered, $7.00 at the door. You can mail a check to our PO Box (check the page footer), or sign up at a monthly meeting beginning soon.
Lunch: Lunch is potluck and never disappoints!  Please bring a dish to pass at lunch (don’t forget to label your serving dishes). NSQG supplies plates, cups, plastic flatware and bottled water.  All other beverages are BYOB.



This is our usual agenda (of course subject to change as the event gets closer).

9:00 am – Doors Open! Come early to check in, get your name tag, put your food away, and find your place so you are ready to go at 9:30am.
