Show and Tell
Tuesday July19th
10:30 a.m. to Noon
We have had requests to bring back Fig Leaf Club. It seems that you really miss show and tell. So, rather than bring back all things club, we are going to try a quarterly Show and Tell. You bring the projects you've been working on to share with each other. We'll bring the newest books, patterns and gadgets to share with you. We might even include a free pattern or two.
We would appreciate it if you would let us know you're coming so we will know how many of you to prepare for.
Host: Laura Shotwell
Fee: Free
