For 2018, Second Saturday Club switches gears to focus on quilting topics "before and after" the block. The first part of the meeting will be an interactive discussion of tasks, skills, or products that are integral to designing, making, and finishing any quilt. There will be some small projects to do at home and, of course, a lively show-and-tell. A great opportunity to meet fellow quilters and exchange ideas!    

2nd Saturday of every month, 9-10:30
