We have lots to tell you about in this newsletter. We have been so busy planning guild events we haven't sent out a newsletter in awhile. We know how busy everyone is in the summer so this will likely be our only newsletter until September.
We had a great time at our summer sew-in held at Periwinkle on June 21st and 22nd. We had a full house! It was so much fun to laugh and sew together. We plan to hold more events like this in the future so stay tuned.
Since co-op on 8th street closed we have lost our Wednesday night meeting location. As a result we will move to host meetings are our individual houses. The meetings will still be help the second Wednesday of every month but the locations will be announced on a monthly basis. An e-mail will go out to members with the particulars. If you would like to attend a Wednesday meeting and are not a member just send us an e-mail and we'll let you know where it is.
