We appreciate the fact that you spent your Saturday morning with us, thank you.  Here is a recap of things you might have missed or need to know about.

  • Members brought in the mini fabric bundles they built based off of last month's focal fabric. Thanks to Casey for leading the activity and the other members of the Swap/Challenge committee for hosting such a fun program.

  • Jessica recapped this year's charity project [details here] and mentioned that we will have STLMQG Cares labels beginning next month for anyone who would like to use them.
