JANUARY 2nd, 2018 MEETING REMINDER!
Hello Huntington Guild Members Members,
It’s hard to believe that I am writing this JANUARY, 2nd, 2018 MEETING REMINDER! Where did 2017 go?
The first meeting for the new calendar year is TUESDAY, JANUARY 2,ND 2018. Meeting start time is 7:30 pm. The hall is open a bit earlier for setup. If you have a few extra minutes, why not stop in a bit early and help us set up for the meeting.
JANUARY IS PRO BONO NIGHT!
Happy New Year Huntington Quilters! Hope all of you have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year. Our January 2018 meeting will be Pro Bono Night. The committee will be setting up stations to work on Pro Bono Quilts. We will need members to bring 4 irons. We will also need members to bring 4 sewing machines. Members need to bring large eye sewing needles for tying and regular sewing supplies scissors, thread, pins, etc. Members should email me so I know how many irons and machines will be available. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.. I know we will have a fun and enjoyable evening that will benefit others. Thank you all in advance for your cooperation.
