SCRAPPERS IMPROV: “Where the rules don’t count, and your points don’t matter.” This is a group for anyone and everyone who loves to play with scraps and strips.

SMALL QUILT STITCHERS: If you enjoy a small, mini, diminutive, tiny or little quilt project, this is the group for you. Wall quilts, doll quilts, table runners, pillow covers, or potholders…it doesn’t matter. We want to have a “little” fun together exploring!
WHEN: 4TH Tuesday of each month
TIME: 12-4:00 pm

OPEN SEW: Do you need to know that you aren’t alone? We ALL have more projects than we have time for, so let’s motivate each other to the finish line. PLAN time to sew with us, and see what you accomplish!
WHEN: 2nd and 4th Friday of each month
TIME: 10:00-4:00 pm

**WEDNESDAY WORKER BEES: Will continue to meet each Wednesday 10-4…come as you can, leave as you must. No cost for this bee, as their work supports many charities. There’s always room for more!

Have a great week!!
