Exciting news! Special PQG meet-up on Saturday, May 15 in Shelter #1 at Bur-Mil Park from 11 am to 2 pm!
You may come before or stay after; we have the shelter all day. We will be masked and socially distanced as the shelter is so big that it has 20 picnic tables plus space. Bring your own lunch and the guild will provide drinks and desserts. We will have a hands-on workshop to make leaf prints on fabric. We have muslin, paints and brushes. The park has leaves, but bring your own from your own yard if you choose. You may also want to bring your own fabric pieces to print. It is a great place to talk a walk for your daily exercise. We hope to see everyone there, rain or shine.
5834 Bur-Mill Club Rd, Greensboro
*** BOARD MEETING after lunch and our workshop from 1:30pm to 2pm. If you have any items that need to be discussed, please send them to Betty by email.
