Just a reminder that we will be having an OPEN SEW on Sunday, July 24th, 9am- 2p. Arrival time is between 8:45 and 9:15 am, as our doors remain locked when everyone is upstairs. Please register online in advance to reserve your spot each session you'd like to attend due to limited seating. $10 per session, work on whatever project you like. These will continue on the 4th Sunday each month through the end of the year.


SUNDAY BEST CLUB: Pick a pattern from the Sunday Best Quilts book and join this ongoing club at any time!  Due to the nonstructured nature, pre-registration is required each session to reserve your seat.

Arrival time is between 8:30-9:00 am, as our doors remain locked when everyone is upstairs.
