TREE CITY QUILT GUILD SCHEDULED TO DEMO
at Wayne County Fair, Grange Rotunda Building
Wednesday September 12, 2018
From 1:00 to 2:30pm
The theme this year is "Show and Tell". Need members to show and share how their quilts were made etc. My favorite part of our meetings is show and tell and this would be easy for most of us to just talk about our quilts. Would give those in the audience also chance to share a quilt memory. Also want to give out five community quilts to those present for someone in need. I don't at moment have any community service quilts so if you have any please bring to meeting in August. Please give to Shirley Rodgers as I will not be able to attend the August meeting.
