Bring cutting supplies.
· Program Gail reminded everyone there will be a workshop Thursday June 11 at 9:30am, we will be making a quilt designed especially for us by Jeanne Dumphy called Beach Balls in the Sand. The pattern features an inset circle technique that’s a technique requested by our membership in a survey conducted last year. The cost is $15.00, can’t beat that!! It will be held at the Green Creek Fire Hall. There’s info about workshop supplies and pre cutting directions posted on our blog. Bring a snack/pot luck lunch item to share and what you want to drink.
