January 2018 Meeting

New Meeting Format

January was the first meeting with our new format. See the Meetings section of the website or check out the newsletter for information on meetings.

Jan meeting

We’re looking for volunteers to open and close the sew day meetings and to bring irons, ironing boards, and cutting mats. We determined that sending out an email to membership before each meeting would be the easiest way for members willing to volunteer. Keep an eye out for the email about a week before each meeting.

 


 

Book/Blog/Bolt  –  Show&Tell
