It would appear that the Groundhog might have been somewhat correct in his prediction of an early Spring. It feels like it’s starting to warm up, even if it is just a little bit! Keep sewing and quilting to help stay warm!
This is the April 2, 2019 Meeting Reminder message.
President message – Michelina Maguire... “Hello my fellow quilts friends, I will not be at the April meeting. My husband is turning 60 on April 2, the night of the meeting! I felt the need to celebrate this milestone with him. I hope you all understand. Peg Schroeder has graciously volunteered to step up and fill in for me!! Kathy Kelner will be opening the doors. My deepest appreciation to them for her time and help! I hope you all enjoy the evening and I look forward to seeing all of you in May.
Thank you, Michelina
