Members may bring guests, but seating is limited to 50 so please make a reservation with Carole at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a seat. Attendees are asked to bring a food item to share for a potluck luncheon, examples of their work to share with the group, and a 5" x 7" mini quilt that somehow incorporates a symbol of friendship to swap.
Carole Staples work is fantastic. If you are not familiar with her art, check it out at www.mivadesigns.com.
