Yes, the next Sew What Table will be on Saturday, May 15, starting at 9:30.  This will be the last Sew What Table until summer's end, so please come and help us reduce our inventory.  Our prices are already low, and we will be offering additional discounts, especially on large purchases.  And if you haven't heard, we've received a lot of new donations since the last SWT.  We're busy getting these ready to put out on the 15th, so don't miss out!  
Remember to wear a mask.  A lot of us have been vaccinated, but there may be people who haven't.  Rather than policing for those who show proof of vaccination and those who don't, everyone will still wear masks and maintain physical distancing.  
Remember that Joslyn is making the space and the tables and chairs available at no cost, so please bring nonperishable food for their food pantry and a cash donation to thank them.
The Sew What Table will accept cash, check, and/or credit cards.
Here's a link to sign up for a slot.  Please arrive on time.  Walk-ins will be accommodated when feasible.  Join us for fabric, notions and other related treasures, and a good time with old friends and new!!

Sew What Table May 2021



 Saturday, March 27, 2021

 Joslyn Senior Center parking lot



The Sew What Table on March 27 was a huge success, thanks to all of you who came out to support the Guild!  There were 41 people who shopped in our outdoor location in Joslyn Center’s parking lot in Palm Desert.  (Some even came back for a 2nd go at it!!)  And we raised over $2000!  Lots of people thanked us and said they had a lot of fun – including me and ALL of the other people who helped staff the event – and I heard a lot of comments about the quantity and variety of fabric, notions, and books that were available.  We collected $150 in donations to the Joslyn Center, and some people brought food for Joslyn’s food program.  Our thanks go to Joslyn for supporting us, even though they’re closed due to the pandemic.

We have received new donations that we will be getting ready to offer to you at one more Sew What Table before summer.  Keep an eye on the Guild website and watch your email for the announcement.  If you’re not on our mailing list and want to be added, send an email to or go to our HOME page and click on the link at the bottom. You do not have to be a member to receive the newsletter, or to participate in the Sew What Tables.


My special thanks go to the people who worked with me to make this happen:  Jerilynn Williams, Karon Patterson, Treese Pflum, Cheryl Taylor, Kim Johnson, Pene Owens, Marcia Ulrich, Joan Kiening, Fran Jones Anita Holden, Tony DeZego, Brian Brown and last (but certainly not least) Alan Cargaro.  You guys rock!!!
