Yard Sale!

Time for our annual yard sale!

If you're de-stashing (the new trend), downsizing, cleaning out, re-organizing your sewing room, bring what you've culled to the yard sale. Only quilting related items please.  These are always fun, and who knows? You might find just the right piece you need to finish a UFO.  Speaking of UFOs - those are welcome, too.  Sometimes we just don't want to revisit them, or realize, "What was I thinking?" Ten percent of your proceeds for Community Service. See Susan C.

There will be sale spots in the back and sides of the room for your goodies and sale items.  You might want to bring a sheet to throw over your pile while you grab your snacks or while we have the meeting.

The yard sale will be during our next time together, August 18th.  See you there!


So Fun Tour

It was so fun to go to Hoffman Fabrics on the 20th! Go here to read Elizabeth E's photo-filled report on it.  Thank you, Elizabeth, for sharing the great time had by all. And thank you, Evie, for arranging it.
