CUSTOMER “SHOW ‘N TELL” PICNIC RETURNS!

On Saturday September 18th the “Show ‘n Tell” Picnic returns! It will be different this year to comply with any COVID guidelines so no Potluck style. Instead, the event will be a “Bring your own lunch” so pack a picnic basket or stop at your favorite sandwich place and bring your lunch. Bring a lawn chair also as this event will be outside!

QGS will be furnishing beverages and desserts.

And don’t forget to bring some Show ‘n Tell. We all would like to see what you have been working on over the past years.
