What to bring-- Your hand-sewing projects, outdoor-friendly snacks, hats & sunscreen as it could be getting hot again (other than hot, the weather looks great for that day!).
**A separate note about the additional sewing day in Frederick, MD that was scheduled for this Saturday also: we'll be postponing that meeting once again in favor of a future date, tbd. Sorry for any confusion that may have caused!
Hope to see people in DC on Saturday!
