This is a quick reminder that our next meeting will be on Monday, November 21st, 2016!
Hey Everyone! This is embarrassing but I forgot to send out the email reminder last week! I will be sure to post this in the Facebook group as well.
Tonight we are happy to have our VINTAGE QUILTS SHOW AND TELL! If you have a vintage quilt or a quilt that was inspired by vintage quilts, please be sure to come sign up and show us! We will also be having the regular Show and tell and this is the last month to get your UFO Challenges done!
