- 2nd Saturday Sew Day  -  is Growing in Size and Strength
 - at St. Paul's Church, 9:30-3 pm.  
- 3 local guilds meet to share the sew day: Remember Me Guild, River City Guild, and The Modern Quilt Guild congregate to share the work space.

          Lori Steib, vice president of Remember Me and president of Modern Quilt, has an ambitious plan to promote interest and to expand the activities of our local quilt community. By providing a sewing opportunity that integrates differing quilt tastes and interests into group events.  She hopes to make sew days a fellowship that will be a fulfilling quilting experience and better attended by combining memberships.  There will be more quilters with better interaction with ideas and advice. Renew old friendships and make some new ones.
