Reminder – meeting this Thursday, March 19

Just a friendly reminder that we have a meeting this Thursday at 7PM at Rock Paper Scissors in Montclair.

Bring a chair, a name tag and something to show and tell!

We have announcements, a new swap to introduce for April, and a program by popular demand!

We are very lucky that Beth Rowan of Rock Paper Scissors is going to give us her demo from Quiltcon called “Sew Many Substrates.” (We were supposed to get a sneak peek in January before we got snowed out!) She’ll show us samples of quilts made from substrates like voile and jersey knit, and pass along some tips on how she made them. Get there early for good seats!

See you then!
