Please bring dues with you to a meeting in cash or cheque please (made out to Sheila Bonnett, we don't have a bank account yet). If you're not sure about joining you are welcome to attend two meetings for free before deciding to join. 

Regular Sunday Meetings
Our regular meetings will continue to be held the 4th Sunday of every month at 2pm. We have a new location for 2015. Our membership is growing and we were feeling the space crunch at Periwinkle, some meetings we didn't have enough chairs! We are moving our meetings to the Saskatoon Field House. One of our executive members will be sure to meet and greet you at the door. We hope to see you at our first meeting of 2015 on Sunday, January 25th. 

Our January meeting focus will be on sewing machine maintenance with Dyanne!

Wednesday MeetingsWe are still holding informal Wednesday night meetings at member's 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.
