For our February meeting we would ask members whose last names begin with M and N to bring snacks. It’s the “Ugly Fabric” auction and we anticipate a good member turnout, so we ask that snacks be generous. Thank you!
Despite the weather, January member demos were appreciated by those attending and great tips and ideas passed along!
