12/28/2013 UFO Day

On, Saturday, December 28 we won’t be cleaning, cooking, wrapping presents, hopefully not returning gifts, and not ready to “un-decorate” (is that a word?) the tree. So plan on a fun day with your “quilting sisters”.

Date: Saturday, December 28
Time: 8:00 a.m. – 10:00 p.m.
Where: Township Center

Bring your lunch and snacks for a ‘snack table’. We’ll all chip in and order pizza for the evening meal. Oh – and to work on, bring all your quilting, knitting, crocheting, sewing, whatever, etc. items.

The next UFO day is Saturday, November 16th from 10:00AM to 3:00PM.  Any member of the Northern Lake County Quilters Guild is welcome to attend. There is no registration or cost.

Bring one or more of those unfinished objects (UFOs) you have tucked away at home to work on. Come and stay as long as you want, just an hour or two, or the entire day! There is a refrigerator and microwave available, so you may bring a lunch if you wish. We’ll have more UFO days scheduled in 2014, so watch your email for more information.
