STARTING IN-PERSON MEETINGS - JULY 7, 2021

 

 

 

Hello quilters. Our Guild is starting up in-person meetings again. Many of our members are vaccinated.  Those not vaccinated, please wear a mask. We will be meeting at the Yacht club July 7 at 11:30 with a 'get to know you again' kickoff. Please bring a sack lunch and beverage. We will be seated at tables meant for 8-10 people, but will only have 4-5 per table. Bring one project you have completed during COVID to share with the group. Come and see what we are about if you are not a member, but are interested in checking us out. We welcome quilters from beginners to experts. In fact, we even had one new member unpack a brand new sewing machine at a sew-in to learn how to quilt. People helped her get started. She is now an art quilter.
