May 7 2017 Meeting— Important Changes

As discussed at our last meeting, our May program will be a Sherri Lynn Wood style Improv Round Robin.
We will meet on 7May2017 at Rocky Hill Common House from 11:00 AM until 2:00 PM (NOTE THAT THIS IS A ONE HOUR EARLIER START TIME THAN USUAL!!).

Robin has sent out a list of “materials” that you need. Please see her email of April 18th for complete details or email, Ellen ( LNFOL@hotmail.com) and I will forward them to you.

IN ORDER TO HAVE A SUFFICIENT NUMBER OF IRONING STATIONS AND ROTARY CUTTING STATIONS, AND TO BE ABLE TO QUICKLY SET UP SEWING TABLES ON THAT DAY, IT WAS SUGGESTED THAT A HEAD COUNT BE DETERMINED BEFORE  7MAY2017.

PLEASE LET Robin (robinhellerharrison@gmail.com) KNOW IF YOU WILL BE ATTENDING THE MAY 7 MEETING BY 1MAY2017.

At our meeting ,we will also be discussing the arrangements for our Amy Friend workshop.
