Summer Fun!

Hello! Here is a recap of July’s meeting. New location! New members! Fun times. We are now meeting in the community room in the Sobey’s on Preston. It’s nice and bright.

First Jaclyn gave us a talk on block printing. Jaclyn was lucky enough to take a blocking printing class with Lizzy House at Quilt Con in February, and she brought all of her tools to show us. It was very informative and most of us are keen to learn more!
