Zoom Meeting – September 21st

For our first ZOOM meeting in September, our program will be SHOW & TELL.  I know that all of you have been busy sewing and we’ve all had lots of time to create! To participate, please email pictures of your quilts/quilted projects to me, Carol Kreson via email.  My email is in the directory. Please put Sept. Show & Tell in the subject line so I don’t miss anyone.  Send the pictures no later than September 17. I will create a presentation with all the pictures.  During the meeting we will be able to see the pictures on a full screen and each person can talk about their quilt or quilted project. For this meeting there is no limit on the number of projects you can show, but please remember there will be additional meetings to show your work.
