February Meetings and Current Events

Notes from Linda about upcoming events:

The next meeting will be on Febuary 23rd and we are starting the meeting at 6:30.

You will need to bring 1 yard of ugly fabric for an activity. The block exchange is a 12 1/2 " unfinished square, in blues, greens, and white, and a star pattern.

The retreat in March is set for the 13th-15th at the Bishop O'Connor Center in Madison. We are not limiting this to Guild members. If you have a sister, Mom, or friend you would like to bring along. Sign up and enjoy the sewing therapy.

Anyone who wants to attend the Sewing Expo at Southwest Tech. ***Correction - Anyone that has attended recently should still receive a catalog. For those of you that have not registered for classes in the last 3 years the SW Tech organizers are sending out postcards. If you plan to attend, please send the postcard back along with the $3.00 fee for the class catalog. If you would like more information you can visit the website at
