Airing of the Quilts

May 4, 2015

Our May 28 meeting will be our annual Airing Of the Quilts.

We line the fences with quilts at Lonetta Blevin’s house, 3302 Perry Road in Rogers. This is just across the street from Target, Cabella’s and Pinnacle Hill’s Promenade.

Please bring a potluck dish to share, as well a folding chair.

Don’t forget to bring a sheet or plastic or other material to cover the fence to protect your quilt.

And please note the earlier start time for this meeting only: 6 p.m.

In case of rain, the meeting is cancelled. An email will go to members alerting them to this should it occur.
