Show opening this Saturday!

Our quilt show at Fabric Place Basement opens this Saturday, January 24, at 3 pm!

Over 40 member quilts will be on display.   We are thrilled to welcome friends and family, and have extended invitations to 20+ local guilds.  Door prizes, an improv wall, and snacks are planned.  Don't be shy about bringing folks with you - the more, the merrier!

Please note that due to logistics, this meeting will be open-house format.   We will not have having a show-and-tell this month.   Please plan to bring finished items to our February meeting for show-and-tell.

A few additional reminders:
  • If you have a nametag, please wear it!  We encourage you to engage with potential new members, and spend time talking about your work with attendees.
  • Don't forget to bring any charity pillowcases or quilt blocks you have made.  We plan to set up a table where these will be displayed on Saturday.  
  • Reach out to Jane or Karen (or any board member) ASAP if you have any questions about getting your show submission to Fabric Place Basement
See you all Saturday!
