  2. Hi Fran-
    A link to information about Craft South was sent to all members. There is more info at Anna Maria Horner's Craft South website too.

    1. Would it be possible to archive member emails or post key points to a bulletin board widget? i sometimes find I recall hearing about something, but can't remember which of the communication channels it came from. Thanks!

  3. Hi Y'all, I've moved from quilting to sewing clothes and have a sh_t-ton of fabric I'd like to sell. I've got it boxed, labeled, and I'm wondering if I could come to your March 11th meeting and see if anyone is interested in taking some of it off of my hands? My email is Thanks in advance for any help you can offer. Also I have images I can send if you'd like. My stuff tends to be tone on tone but there are not many solids, which I know modern quilters like. Jut let me know.

  4. I've just moved from California to DC and am downsizing a studio into a much smaller space. I was active in my guild in CA -- managed the newsletter for years, worked at our annual show, etc. Interested in hooking up here. I also have lots of fabric and supplies to share, sell, trade.

    1. Hi Lexy, We would love to meet you and have you get involved. We have followed up with an email to the account you listed. Cheers!
