  • Sew-Ins: We've had low turn-out, how can we make it better?
    • We voted to switch it to the third Thursday of the month from 5pm - 9pm
    • We will also continue to do all-day sew-ins - maybe every other month or every third month.  Next all-day sew-in date to be determined.

Round Robin: Hayley became a quilt angel and is working on Stephanie's quilt even though she doesn't even have one in the mix!  What an angel.
