Monthly Meeting Reminder: October 18, 2014

Our next meeting will be held on October 18. It will be at 10 am as usual and the location is the BARR CONFERENCE ROOM, where we met in September. In fact, we will be in the Barr Conference Room for the remainder of the year and probably beyond. If you haven't been with us for a meeting recently, you can find a downloadable map under the "MEETINGS" tab at the top of this page.
This is an important meeting: We will plan the calendar for next year. It will also be an open sew, so please bring your sewing project AND your ideas for next year. We'll set up right away and discuss the calendar AS we sew. That way you can get some good sewing time in. If you don't want to sew, please still come with your ideas. Big ideas, small ideas: let's talk about them all.
See you on Saturday!!
