Meeting #114 (Saturday October 16th, 2021)

It's hard to believe another month has already passed and and the fall season is already upon us! Since we had to miss our usual October SewMe this year we are having a *special* October meeting this coming Saturday the 16th. We will be meeting from 10:00am - 12:00pm at the Shrewsbury Center in the multi-purpose room. We will be making holiday cards for local nursing homes this month and it will be a lovely opportunity to relax, visit, and work on something that doesn't require a lot of concentration. For a full list of the year's remaining meeting see the Meeting and Events Tab.

For those at home we are still planning on Zooming the meeting so you can still join in! The link and info will be sent to your member email later this week. If you are participating from afar and wish to send some holiday cards we will be collecting them at the November meeting so let us know if you would like to mail yours - reach out to us at stlmqg@gmail.com.

Just a friendly reminder that we are still looking for someone to step up to fill the upcoming open role of STLMQG President as our current president is not planning to run again - if you or anyone you know might be a good fit please reach out to Pam Hartig at the meeting or shoot her email to let her know you're interested.
