Charity Sewing this Saturday--Details about the Meeting

Hey Folks!

We're only a few days away from our big charity sewing meeting!

I wanted to go over a couple of details about the meeting location prior to Saturday.  We'll be meeting at The Falls Church Episcopal in Falls Church from 10am to 5pm this Saturday, Sept. 26th.  The address is 196 East Fairfax St., Falls Church, VA.  This is the same venue as we used for our June meeting as well as the Lizzy House lecture.  But, a notable change, we are in the Fellowship Hall room this time (not the same room as in June)!  Please use the same parking (described here in this post) as last time (located off of E. Fairfax St. and Douglass Ave. and labeled "Church Parking") and then head for the big, arched-white-windowed atrium looking room that is almost directly across from the parking lot.  That's the Fellowship Hall!

What to bring:  Please bring as many extension cords (the longer the better!) and power strips as you have so that we can distribute machine power around the room.  Also, bring irons, ironing boards, and cutting mats as usual.  At least as much as you need for your own sewing and if you have extras to share, all the better.  Any snacks, food, or drink that you want to bring along for the day is always welcome and for lunch, there are several great options within walking distance from the church to recharge yourself for the day of sewing!  And we'll start the business meeting after lunch.

Refer back to the last few posts about charity sewing packs and prizes for other details about what the DCMQG has going on for the 100 Quilts for Kids this year!  This meeting is open to the public so bring others who are interested in sewing for charity or, even if you aren't a member, come contribute to some quilts!

We hope to see you on Saturday!


  1. I'm still looking for a ride if anyone is close to Hyattsville/College Park, MD.

  3. I'll be there. May not be able to stay too late.
