Our next meeting will be held on Monday, March 1st @ 7:00 p.m. at the Solid Ground Restaurant, 412 S McCulloch Blvd. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m.
The March program will be guest speaker, Cathy Ortega, who will be demonstrating hand appliqué. Members/guests are asked to bring the following for hands-on instruction: thimble, sharp-pointed scissors (curved are best) to trim little pieces, and a couple of straight pins.
We still need volunteers for Block of the Month, Set-up, and Refreshments. The sheets will be available for sign up. Thank you to all who have already volunteered.
Bring extra sympathy and get-well cards for the board to send out cards to our members.
