Hello guild members,
Welcome to our new home, everyone :).
We have finally made the move to our new location, 11241 S.W. 184 Street. I would like to extend a very special thank you to all those who made this happen (I know I will miss someone, sorry), Lois Erickson, Mary Jane Nelson, Sharon Krutulis; and of course a very special thank you to Gerry Tucker for all her work and time securing a location allowing uninterrupted guild meetings. We are truly indebted to her.
Our new space has a much more secure parking area, a very bright meeting area, separate classrooms for our seminars and an elevator, we’re moving on up! I mean that literally since we are now on the second floor, hence the `elevator LOL. I really like the idea of the separate classroom and hope you do also. Now we can set up for a class in a separate area as we come in, and not have to move tables all over the place.
Next Meeting at Ocean Waves:
All our backs are very grateful for that. We have a separate and limited kitchen area, but as you know we currently have all our kitchen utensils including plates and such in storage. I ask that for the next two meetings we will need to bring our own “lunch-in-a– bag” until we can figure out the kitchen arrangements. You can always bring cookies and such to share with members, but please bring napkins or disposable plates for them since we can’t store anything onsite for now. Our library will be back once we have the secure onsite storage closet built.
May is Member Demo and we have 9 of our members showing their techniques, tools, and tips -- how awesome is that! I know how much you all love to share your talents and this is the perfect opportunity to reveal your secrets, thank you.
Remember that in June we will have Marcia Barcia with us providing us with two seminars. One is advanced ruler work $45 and the Reverse Trapunto, $95. We saw her examples of her incredible work on her last visit and I am so signing up for that class, hope you do as well.
Sunday May 13th is Mother’s Day and I would like to wish that you all have a very happy and joyful day.
As always, keep your bobbins full :),
