Heide Parkes Outings

We are excited to host Heidi Parkes for her improvisational piecing workshops on May 7th!  Coming from Milwaukee, she would love to spend time getting to know our Guild and our city that weekend.  So, the Guild is planning some fun outings with Heidi, and we’d love to have you join (whether you can come to the workshops or not)!

In-Town Retreat Reminder

Hey everyone! 

This is just a friendly reminder of our in-town sewing retreat at Millie P's this Friday thru Sunday (4/8-4/10)! If you are thinking of coming one or more days, please email Kristin Lawson at kristin.bittles@gmail.com with the days you are planning on attending! Cost is $10 per person per day (due to Kristin Lawson at the retreat). Hours are 9-midnight on Friday/Saturday and 9-7 on Sunday. As it stands the sign-ups are on the light side so we'd love to know if people are still thinking of coming who may not have signed up yet (so we can plan food/space accordingly). 

We hope to see you there!
