Well, it is July 1st and you probably want to know what all the Hoopla is about, am I right?
It's actually a two-part surprise...
Part 1...for those of you who routinely log-on and check Flickr, you'll note that I mentioned our guild's 1st year anniversary is July 30th, 2011. It has been an amazing first year and we wanted to celebrate it with all of you, so we will be having a party, and not just any party...one with giveaways. Mary Claire and I have been in contact with several people and are pleased to announce that we have secured some donations from The Quilted Garden, The Quilted Fox, Moda/United Notions, as well as a special surprise from both Mary Claire and myself.
We look forward to seeing all of you Saturday, July 9th at Bindings, Borders and Squares Quilt Shop...make sure you have your party pants on...hehehe
Part 2...in honor of the outpouring of support that you all have already shown and will ultimately show during July's meeting when all of our Spring/Summer Charity Blocks have been collected (remember they are all due next meeting), I've been able to secure something that all of our due-paying members will want to know about. Ready...
Yep, that's right folks. I've scored us another Sew-In Saturday. Our first one back in May was a blast and while our next one on September 24th is still on schedule, I've now added a Surprise! Sew-In Saturday. So all due-paying members, mark those calendars.
Location: Brown Shoe Company - Clayton, MO
Times: 9am - 6pm
Date: Saturday, August 27th
Registration Required, Sign-ups begin in early August
That's it, there is the Big Announcement...or in this case Announcements (stressing the s). I hope it lived up to the anticipation.
