Our next meeting will be on Sunday, 10Sept2017, from 12-2 pm at Rocky Hill; THERE IS NO MEETING THIS SUNDAY AS IT IS LABOR DAY WEEKEND! Please bring any food inspired wall quilts that you have created for our month long exhibition at Chester Common Table, a restaurant in Chester, MA. Please make certain your quilts have a 4 inch sleeve attached!!
For the meeting on Sunday, 10Sept, our agenda will be simple:
Go through business
Have a leisurely show and tell
Get to know members (we have some new members that we should get to know better)
FYI, some upcoming events and business items I’d like to share ahead of time so they are on your radar screen for the meeting:
Florence Annual Sewing Exchange on Saturday, 16Sept2017 from 9 am until 1 pm at Florence Congregational Church. We will be selling our guild fabric. Seeking volunteers to help sort and organize fabrics at Elaine Huffman’s studio on Friday, 15Sept2017, and to help me “man our vendor booth” on Saturday. Contact Robin if interested in volunteering (thanks to those who have already reached out)
Month long exhibition of food-inspired wall quilts at Chester Common Table in Chester, MA. Bring your quilts to the 10Sept meeting or arrange with Robin for her to get your quilt before the hanging on 26Sept2017.

Quilts can be for sale if you wish, and they will be up for Columbus Day weekend with lots of leaf peepers dining at the restaurant!
