July Sewcial!

Just a reminder that due to the July 4th holiday, we will not have our regular monthly meeting at AccuQuilt on Tuesday, July 3. Instead, we will have an informal sewcial at the Milton R. Abrahams Library Branch at 5111 N. 90th Street (on the southeast corner of 90th & Fort).


Bring your sewing machine, sewing supplies and a project to work on. Don't forget your show & tell. (We love to see what everyone has been working on!) If you'd like, you can bring a snack to share. Join us for the entire time or just part of the evening. All are welcome!
