November 5 Sew What Table -- what a great event it was! Check out the photos.

Thank you to all of our members and others in the community for making our November 5th, Sew What Table event a huge success!!!  Eighty people attended, 12 became new guild members, 10 renewed for 2023 and we raised a whopping $5,300 for the Guild.

We always have fun at this event, and this was no exception.  We did have some technical difficulty with our credit card reader, making our check-out line longer than expected. However, we worked through it and we owe a big thank you to our members for your patience along the way.

For the past 2.5 years, the Joslyn Center Programs Director, Melanie Lyons, has supported us by volunteering her time for our events. On November 5th, we presented her with a thank-you gift (the black-and-white stars quilt in the picture) made by guild members and lunch-bunch members.  We labeled it with a friendship star to symbolize the friendship she has shown to our quilting community.  

We’ve set the date for the next Sew What Table, before seasonal members return home. Mark this date in your calendar:  February 18, 2023


Next Sew What Table event -- Saturday, February 18, 2023!
