We have a PAID opening for RaNae Merrill’s class on Friday, June 22nd for the Magic Mirror Mandala Quilt at Georgetown Library from 10 to 4. You would only need supplies.
Contact Ronni Longwell if interested.
At the June meeting there will be two raffle baskets for viewing. We encourage small groups of people to work together to make a basket and reduce the cost, it does not have to be sewing related. Please give it a title – make it a movie night theme, or a mens sport theme, spa/feel good theme, anything you think would be enjoyable. They can be small, medium, or large. Wrap the basket in tulle or cellophane to keep the contents in tact during its transportation to the show, and make a label that is secured to the basket.
I have available seven battings from small to large that a group could put into their basket, please see me at our meeting.
