She is checking against other calendar. 2 nights/5 meals $150 or 2 nights/4 meals $137 Friday am to Sunday afternoon. Looks like we have at  least 6 people interested. Will let you know when I have actual dates.
  • Basin Piecemakers prep: October 25, 7 pm. The list was sent out of Modern quilting terms that we will explain with our quilts.
  • Program: Carole explained a technique she learned from Joe Cunningham. Fantasy 4-patch. Very interesting simple process that makes for a complicated quilt. She shared 2 completed quilts and one in progress. I know those that weren’t there would have enjoyed this one!
