URGENT - AUGUST 10th MEETING MOVED TO CHURCH IN NASHUA

 

* URGENT CHANGE *

Hello Quilters!

Due to the chance of poor weather tomorrow, we will be hosting our August 10th meeting (tomorrow) at the First Church in Nashua (1 Concord St)!!! Please help spread this message to any folks who may not check their email/blog as often. 

We will hold the bulk of the meeting indoors but if the weather holds up, we will do our ice cream social out in the courtyard of the church. So please still bring chairs or something to sit on if we are able to go outside. 

Please remember to bring your SHOW AND TELL, your BLOCK SWAP bags, and any remaining WIP challenge cards

Looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow at the church!
