This is a quick reminder that our next meeting will be on Monday, August 21st, 2017
As the summer comes to a close and the start of school is just around the corner, we thought we would get also back into that spirit. This month, we would love for all members (and non-members) who attend this month’ss meeting to don their thinking caps. We don’t want to give too much away but come prepared with quilt-y ideas! No supplies required for this meeting, just your brains brimming with opinions and ready for brainstorming!
Can’t wait to see everyone there!
