UPCOMING MEETINGS and OTHER EVENTS

OUR NEXT MEETING:  Thursday, July 11, 2019  
PROGRAM:   ​In July we'll have our Summer Picnic so we will have an earlier start time. The doors will open at 6 pm, we will eat at 6:30 pm and the meeting will follow with some fun and games. Please bring your favorite covered dish to share and bring your serving utensil. The guild will provide plates, napkins, flatware, cups and beverages. 

Don't forget...WE WILL DRAW A WINNER FOR OUR CAROLINA LILY RAFFLE QUILT!!! 

In addition, we will conduct a Silent Auction to raise money for the Spring Quilt Show budget. Items related to sewing and quilting will be accepted. Clean out your sewing room and bring us the items you no longer need (bundle if possible...for example, old magazines, similar tools, etc.) and be ready to bid on items brought by your other guild members. Bring cash to pay for your won items! Please take home any items you bring that are not sold.
