February Meeting Recap

What a fun meeting. We did miss our members who were attending Quilt Con and we can’t wait to hear their experiences at our next meeting. Welcome to our visitors and we have another new member. How exciting! Special Thank you to those who brought treats for us to snack on during the meeting. Delicious.

Here is a recap of the announcements for those who couldn’t be with us.

The Quilt and Sewing Fest of New Jersey  is coming you can purchase your tickets in advance from Rock Paper Scissors. The show will be from March 3-6, 2016. Set up will be March 2 thank you to those who volunteered to help with the setup. Take down will be Sunday after the show. We will also need a few people to help. Many hands make light work. So if your there it would be great to help in anyway you can.

We will be having a sign up for light refreshments during the meetings at the Sign in Table by Annette.

Green Pincushion Swap will be due for the March meeting which falls on St. Patty’s Day.

Mini Quilts for  the Paper Bag  Swap will be due at our April Meeting.
