Comfort Quilt Workshop at the Library tomorrow – Monday, Feb. 1, 2020

Happy Super Sunday everyone! Enjoy the game.
Tomorrow, Monday, February 1st, is our annual Comfort Quilt workshop at the Clifton Park-Halfmoon Library 475 Moe Road, Clifton Park, NY 12065, from 1 pm to 7:30 pm. Look for us in the big room upstairs. This is our February guild meeting.
We have many quilt tops to be tied or machine quilted. We need some members to bring sewing machines to piece backings and attach bindings, too. Please bring scissors and large needles (curved needles work great) for tying quilts. There is lots of crochet cotton in many pretty colors to use.

This is a great opportunity to get to know other guild members, a time to socialize and work on beautiful quilts. Come for a couple of hours or stay for the duration, any and all help is appreciated. Supper of pizza and salad will be provided by the guild.

Contact Comfort Quilts chair, Paula Dunn with any questions at pauladunn@nycap.rr.com.
