Please visit your studios and let go of items that no longer suit your fancy. Your investment of effort will greatly contribute to the success of this highly anticipated event!
If you are unable to part with your stash, won’t you at least consider donating a fat quarter or two that you purchased in haste and can’t stand to look at any longer? Your fat quarter donation will enhance the special drawing of fat quarters and with any luck you’ll get it back!
As a reminder, on March 3,2020, raffle tickets will be sold 12 for $10 and 30 for $20. The $20 purchase will entitle you to enter one of your tickets into a special drawing, a basket of fat quarters. There will also be a 50/50 Raffle that night. Please prepare to dash for cash at your nearest ATM before attending this fun program.
Finally, honey bee volunteers remember we will be meeting on January 9, 2020 at 10am to assemble the baskets at Anne Meyer’s home at 9 Greenleaf Drive Huntington. Your participation is greatly appreciated. Warmly, Brigitte
