Sew-In Day March 17, 2018

We are celebrating Worldwide Quilting Day at the Danish Church Hall at 6010 Kincaid St in Burnaby on March 17, 2018!

Susanne Chaffe has organized this and will be there from 8:30 to 5:00 with the coffee and tea on all day. She’ll be bringing a big pot of vegetarian soup, we can potluck some snacks and treats if you like. Cost is $10 for members $15 for non members. Maximum 16 quilters. Please email her at if interested. Can’t promise you’ll see a Leprechaun but there may be Danish ‘Nisser’ hanging around from Christmas.
